You're a Sandler fan? That has got to be the most surprising post of yours I've seen. If anything I prefer his more recent stuff - the early ones are unwatchable.

Bwanna's Whammers wasn't all bad - probably better than previous efforts, anyway. His own performance is good; having studied the play at A-level, that was the first time I actually undertood all Hamlet's lines.

It's not our fault if crap comics choose to be Jewish.

Well, we get the entire play, so that's a plus. I still prefer the Olivier version and the Kozintsev one from 1964 (he did a cracking King Lear too).

Haven't seen the latter - Olivier I thought a bit of a Monty Python travesty. And let's not forget Mel Giblet...

Mad Mel was alright in the role, but they changed around soliloquies there and I didn't like it. I like the Olivier version because - despite all its faults (many) - it has great cinematography and often has the mood I want from my Hamlet.

AY!! I'd only spare his neck on account of FLIRTING WITH DISASTER. Did get some wicked laughs in this!

I totally agree, but even then his character was a selfish, narrow-sighted idiot, and was mainly funny cos that script was so damned funny, but he was lucky enouh to be at the forefront of a great comedic idea based in reality and with consumate comedians, and he still came across as the weakest thing in it, but yes, he'll defo never better it, though I did quite like his modest turn in 'Keeping The Faith'.

This should be the true subject of this discussion. Adam Sandler is the greater villian. Ben Stiller has on occassion made me laugh. Adam Sandler? At Her Majesty's Pleasure.

Ben Stiller yes, definitely.
I'm not keen on Adam Sandler either but I saw a film he is in called 'Spanglish' and he was good in that. I got the film because I like Tea Leoni.

Also - definitely Russell Brand should go. On my Jet of Death.
