6) Adam Sandler
It’s easy to deride Adam Sandler now, but back in the day, the SNL alumni had a string of hits on his hands. In an era of tamagotchis and Fresh Princes, Sandler was actually kind of talented, tickling funny bones worldwide with fare like The Wedding Singer and Happy Gilmore. Then the 2000’s hit.
The decline was subtle at first, but as the years went by, each Sandler comedy became progressively less and less funny, until his filmography eventually reached the lows of Razzie winners such as That’s My Boy and Jack & Jill.
Unfortunately, Sandler shows no sign of retiring just yet and still has a number of average looking films coming up on the horizon. Surprisingly though, the recently released trailer for Pixels has suggested that the actor may actually have another hit on his hands for the first time in who knows how long.
If Pixels turns out be any good, I’ll force myself to watch a marathon of Grown Ups as punishment… on repeat… until my eyes give up the will to live and just melt straight out of my face.
That’s definitely a thing by the way. Science!
