Adam Sandler has bcome one of Hollywood's biggest comedy stars, producing and starring in some of the best comedies in the last 25 years. Luckily, some of those films are available on Netflix.
Sandler broke into the acting business as a teenager with roles on The Cosby Show, where he played Theo's friend Smitty, and MTV's game show Remote Control.
Eventually, Sandler's stand-up routine was seen by fellow comedian, and former Saturday Night Live star, Dennis Miller, who then recommended him to SNL creator and executive producer Lorne Michaels.
Sandler ended up being hired as a writer for the show in 1990 and then was cast as a feature player the same year.
He very quickly proved himself to be one of the most iconic stars of the show with many memorable sketches and even debuting his classic "Chanukah Song" on the show.
Later, Sandler would go on to be a juggernaut in the business of comedy film. His 2015 animated film Hotel Transylvania 2 raked in $169,700,110 at the box office, and 1999s Big Daddy brought in $163,479,795.
Below, we've put together a list of some great films by the hilarious New York native that you can queue up currently.

This turns into a lead role quarterbacking a crew of inmates in a game against a team of prison guards.

Starring: Adam Sandler, Jennifer Hudson, Kevin James, Terry Crews, Rob Schneider, Colin Quinn, Nick Swardson, Lamorne Morris and Arsenio Hall,
The third film of Adam Sandler's epic film deal with Netflix, Sandy Wexler is easily the best so far.
Following The Ridiculous 6 and The Do-Over, Sandy Wexler tells the hilarious, fictional story of Hollywood's worst manager, played by Sandler.
The film is part faux-documentary, part comedy and is set in the late '80s/early '90s.
While the entire film contains consistent laughs, it shines brightest when featuring cameos from stars like Terry Crews, Milo Ventimiglia, and classic R&B singer Aaron Neville.
The Meyerowitz Stories
Release Date: October 13th, 2017
Starring: Adam Sandler, Ben Stiller, Emma Thompson, and Dustin Hoffman.
Technically, The Meyerowitz Stories is not yet streaming on Netflix, but it will be in a little over a month and there's quite a buzz surrounding it so you should definitely plan to add to your watch-list when it drops.
The film is described as being about "estranged siblings" who "gather in New York to celebrate their father's work as an artist."
Fully titled The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected), the film was written and directed by Noah Baumbach, who also wrote and directed The Squid and the Whale, as well as co-wrote The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, with director Wes Anderson.
Sandler is not new to the "dramedy" genre, as he proved he can shine as a serious actor in films like Funny People, Spanglish, and, most notably, Punch-Drunk Love.
While The Meyerowitz Stories has yet to be released for fans to see, many critics who have seen the film agree that it may be the best project Sandler has ever done.
