7 Signs It's an Adam Sandler Comedy
From ''Billy Madison'' to ''That's My Boy,'' the star's signature humor is startlingly consistent
1. Adult males who look and act like schlubs
They don't dress like grownups if they can help it, or take on many responsibilities. They wear shorts and old T-shirts (Hawaiian shirts for fancy occasions) and bark like dogs.
2. Schlubby dudes who bag babes
Only in Sandler land does Jennifer Aniston need a makeover to be hot enough.
3. Middle school humor!
Okay, he's gone as low as elementary school humor with Billy Madison. But as a rule, his characters have been known to wallow in crude toilet humor, painful crotch gags, and stunts involving animals.
4. Jokes about gays!
I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry was one big gay joke after another. Not to mention that Nicole Kidman's onscreen husband in Just Go With It (Dave Matthews) liked guys. Ha-ha-ha!
5. Exhaustingly zany sidekicks
Nick Swardson, Rob Schneider, Kevin Nealon — take your pick.
6. Jokes about Jews!
The man who wrote ''The Chanukah Song'' has often schmeared on the caricature, like with his portrayal of an uncouth, unchanging Jewish sibling.
7. Endless talk of boobs and boners
Swimsuit model Brooklyn Decker in a bikini — an opportunity for in-depth conversation about both.
