9“If I saw myself in clothes like that, I’d have to kick my own ass.”
Adam Sandler has a way of making angry, violent characters funny and affable in his movies, especially in his early work from the ‘90s. For all intents and purposes, the Billy Madison character is a dangerous, deranged man with the mind of a child who shouldn’t be around children,
but Sandler makes him lovable.
The Happy Gilmore character is the same. He gets into all kinds of savage fights on the golf course and his temper costs him a lot of opportunities, but Sandler makes him lovable.
