Adam Sandler, despite being one of the most-loved comedic actors in Hollywood, isn't known for starring in the most critically acclaimed of films. Harsh, we know. But it's true.

But now Sandler has teased a new potential movie - with everyone's favorite co-star, Drew Barrymore.

Here's what you need to know...

Adam Sandler has had one hell of a career.

And it's needless to say, he has become one of our country's most recognizable and well-loved comedic actors.

Sandler found his fame after becoming a Saturday Night Live cast member.

After dabbling in stand-up comedy for a couple of years, Sandler became an instant hit when he became a regular addition to Saturday Night Live.

Audiences fell in love with Sandler's goofy demeanor.

And, alongside his fellow cast member and friend, Chris Farley, he created some memorable and hilarious sketches. However, not everyone was too impressed, and Sandler was subsequently fired from the show in 1995.

But his career didn't stop there.

And Sandler went on to star in many comedy classics, including Billy Maddison, Happy Gilmore, and The Wedding Singer.

Yet, despite all of his success...

Sandler continuously struggled at the hands of film critics, who often raised their eyebrows at his goofy and often silly performances.

However, it now appears that Sandler may have finally caught the attention of these critics...

As his most recent movie, Uncut Gems, has truly been turning the heads of film buffs.

The movie has scored a staggering rating of 91% on Rotten Tomatoes.

No easy feat, to say the least.

Obviously, it was a massive shock to see his latest release score so highly.

Uncut Gems is an electrifying new crime thriller created by the acclaimed filmmakers, Josh and Benny Safdie.

And the critics have been praising the movie.

Variety critic, Peter Debruge, said in his write-up: "Uncut Gems feels like being locked inside the pinwheeling brain of a lunatic for more than two hours - and guess what: It's a gas!"

The flick is a far cry from Sandler's other movies.

As Eric Kohn from Indiewire noted, writing: "Uncut Gems won't sit well with anyone who prefers protagonists easy to like or stories with a clear moral compass." "But there's a genuine subversive glee involved in following Howard through his inane quest for all the money he can score, and watching him set himself up for failure with such conviction the whole way through."

But, despite the change of genre, Sandler's performance has been wholesomely celebrated.

Variety Fair's K. Austin Collins, praised Sandler's performance, gushing: "I'm a longtime fan of Sandler, and of his schtick; I know his grab-bag of gestures and jokes as well as any other living actor's. And yet I wasn't prepared for Uncut Gems, which pushes his comic persona far toward the malicious insecurities that have long given Sandler his fire."

It was even predicted to be a winner at the Oscars...

In Rotten Tomatoes' "Ridiculously Early Oscar Predictions" list, Sadler has made the list to be a potential Oscar winner for the "Best Actor" award, with them stating: "He is beloved by many, but he has not been much of critical darling, especially lately. That being said, when Sandler teams up with indie directors, good things happen." But of course, the flick was ultimately snubbed this year.

It's true, Sandler is a beloved movie maker.

In fact, earlier this year, he came up with an ingenious new movie scheme...

And for fans of Sandler's back catalog...

It was very exciting news.

A potential Sanderverse collaboration!

"It just happens that we run out of stuff to talk about so just bring that sh*t back from 1961," Sandler told Yahoo! Entertainment.

"I’d like that, I just gotta get mentally prepared for that."

"So that’ll probably happen in another thirty-five-years. We’re gonna get to that."

And there's one potential Sandlerverse co-star that has got the internet excited.

Drew Barrymore, of course!

Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore have teased a potential new movie together at the 2020 MTV Move Awards!

"It was so much fun to make a movie with you in every of the last 3 decades," Drew said to Adam.

Adam responded, "Yes, yes, and Drew, it's 2020 so you know what that means…"

"Everything sucks?" joked Drew. "Yeah that's true," Adam agreed. "But also, it's a new decade so we get to make another movie together."

"Right, well let's wait until we find something amazing, we do have 10 years," Drew finished.
