The actor/comedian has revealed that he stopped reading reviews after he found out that his 1995 comedy Billy Madison received poor reviews from the critics. The actor revealed this in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly about his Netflix film Hustle.
In Billy Madison, Adam Sandler plays a 27-year-old, with no prospects in life, who is given an ultimatum by his rich father: Billy Madison must re-enter his school and pass every class in 24 weeks or lose all of his inheritance.
Upon its release, the film received low ratings from critics but went on to perform well at the box office. It is now considered one of Adam Sandler’s best films and has amassed a cult following over the years. Billy Madison is directed by Tamra Davis based on a script written by Adam Sandler and Tim Herlihy.
Adam Sandler was recently seen in the Netflix sports drama film Hustle directed by Jeremiah Zagar. Apart from Sandler, the cast of the film also includes Queen Latifah, Ben Foster, Juancho Hernangómez, Robert Duvall, Jordan Hull, Heidi Gardner, and María Botto. Hustle is now available to stream on Netflix.
