THE (FORMERLY) FUNNY MEN
Adam Sandler 58 credits
Male comedians are the kings of second chances even long after their jokes have gone to seed. Adam Sandler is a prime example. His man-child shtick has remained the same, but the public’s appetite for his humor hasn’t. Sandler’s movies tend to be exhausting and stupid, but that didn’t stop Netflix from signing him for a four-movie deal and landing itself in a lot of hot water after the comedian offended Native Americans on set with his “humor.”
See also: JimCarrey, whose war on vaccines gets more headlines than his work, still managed to make “Dumb and Dumber To” (2014). There’s also Vince Vaughn, who, like Sandler, is peddling the same routine — the lovable fast talker — with increasingly lackluster results.
