I wonder why Sandler doesn't do more dramas. I mean, okay, I get that he's Adam ****ing Sandler, and that douchebro comedies will always be his bread and butter. But I thought Reign Over Me was an excellent movie, not least on the strength of Sandler's performance.
I just think of actors like Samuel L Jackson and Kevin Bacon who do way more movies that you even think they do (which should already be a lot) and can't help but think he'd have time in his schedule in between all the Jack & Jill bull****. I guess the simple answer is he just doesn't want to, but why I wonder.
I would guess his douche-bro comedies make more money than his serious attempts at acting. It's the sad truth of Hollywood: people don't like change.
