A collection of Adam Sandler comedies. In 'Big Daddy' (1999) Sonny Koufax (Sandler) is a 32-year-old loser who refuses to take responsibility for his life and spends his days watching television in his pyjamas. The day after his girlfriend Vanessa (Kristy Swanson) dumps him, five-year-old Julian (Cole and Dylan Sprouse) arrives at his house, claiming to be the son of his recently departed flatmate. Sonny then mistakenly decides that adopting Julian will impress Vanessa, only to discover that there is more to parenting than meets the eye. In 'Billy Madison' (1996) Billy (Sandler) has an easy life as the heir to his millionaire father's hotel empire, until his dad decides to turn over the company to vice president Eric Gordon (Bradley Whitford). Billy bets his father that if he goes back to school he can attain grades 1 to 12 in 24 weeks. No mean feat, as Billy has spent the ten years since he left high school lazing by the pool and chasing women. When he falls for his new teacher, however, he attends to his studies with renewed vigour. In 'Funny People' (2009) Sandler stars as George Simmons, a famous comedian who finds out that he has an incurable blood disorder and less than a year to live. His subsequent desire to form a genuine bond with another human being causes George to proffer a hand up the career ladder to struggling newcomer Ira Wright (Seth Rogen), whom he takes under his wing as his assistant and opening act. Meanwhile, George also seeks reconciliation and closure in the central relationships of his life, in particular with his ex-wife, Laura (Leslie Mann). In 'Happy Gilmore' (1996) Sandler stars as the eponymous would-be hockey star who finds his slap shot better employed on the fairway. When his granny loses her house to the IRS, Happy determines to buy it back by winning the pro golf tour. His temper and antics soon make him golf's media darling, but a bitter rival (Christopher McDonald) has a few tricks in store. 'The Longest Yard' (2005) concerns a pro quarterback, Paul Crewe (Sandler), and the former college champion and coach, Nate Scarboro (Burt Reynolds), who are both doing time in the same prison. Asked to put together a team of inmates to take on the guards, Crewe enlists the help of Scarboro to coach the inmates to victory in a football game 'fixed' to turn out quite another way. Finally, in 'You Don't Mess With the Zohan' (2008), Sandler as Zohan Dvir, an Israeli Special Forces soldier who fakes his own death so he can reinvent himself as a hairdresser in New York. He throws himself into his new identity with admirable gusto, romancing his clients by performing 'special services' in the back room - but is eventually recognised and must face losing his newfound life and career.

I will start with the film Funny People - this was awful, Unnecessarily vulgar with constant swearing all the way through, such a long film with not much really going on. Billy Madison was not much better, this was about a grown up who has to go back to school (right from day one) in order to win his fathers company - It made me cringe trying to watch it, it was a bit of a non event. We then move on you don't mess with the Zohan which was a little far fetched but passed the time and had a happy ending.
The longest yard was an improvement but didn't come accross as a comedy - not with the guards hitting the inmates, and the planting of the bomb. Big Daddy was a nice film, that had a good story line and a happy ending and finally Happy Gilmore this was proberly my favourite one which I may watch again along with the longest yard (Possibly) but none of the others. Adam Sandler is a fine actor and has been in some cracking films - none of the films on this box set come close.
movies are great, they work new condition and is good quality. recommend
