Thoughts on Adam Sandler: Funny Guy
Thoughts – Adam Sandler Funny Guy does takes use through the career of the much talked about actor, we go through clips of his film and snippets from his interviews through the years, this is all what you would expect to see in a documentary, what might disappoint more is the fact we don’t get into any stories about the man, everything is achieve footage that you would expect to see on press tours of movies, where the whole cast is going to say he is a nice guy, works hard etc. while I don’t want to just see people bash the man, more personal stories of good or bad would have given this documentary another level, to help the audience that might well be more appealing to see how down to Earth the man is, how he doesn’t care what the critics say, only going with what the fans say. This does mostly feel like a basic view into the life of Adam Sandler’s entertainment career.
Final Thoughts – Adam Sandler: Funny Man is a by the books documentary giving us a look at the basics of his career.
