Take a few years off and push for that one great idea.
To his fans’ delight, as well as the happiness of the studio heads who back his projects, Adam Sandler hardly ever takes a break. Dude has starred in at least one successful movie every year for the last 14 years, but here’s the downside: Such productivity has gradually lessened the overall quality of his cinematic output.
We’ll even be sympathetic here: It has to be damn near impossible to maintain a consistency over that long a period of time. And when fatigue sets in, so does a lackadaisical attitude, and that’s when Jack and Jill happens. So why not take some personal time, kick back with the family, and live off your insane riches earned through a succession of $100 million-plus hit movies?
Who knows, a year or two of me-time might help him to scoff off ideas like playing a woman (Jack and Jill) and starring in a movie alongside both Vanilla Ice and Rex Ryan (That’s My Boy). And it might just trigger Sandler’s imagination and provoke some fresh, left-field ideas.
