Do you hate Adam Sandler’s constant stream of train wrecks that he pretend to pass off as films? Well, that’s too bad because Sandler doesn’t give a damn what you think.
After his most recent offering The Ridiculous 6, a Netflix exclusive Western comedy, was resoundingly skewered by both critics and the general public, Sandler appeared on The Howard Stern Show on Tuesday to brush the dirt off his shoulders.
“The bad reviews that I get on everything I do, that part pisses me off because I ask my f*cking friends to be in it, and to ask them to be in this stuff and I’m promising them, ‘I think it’s good.’ And then I do screenings for an audience and it all works and I’ll call them up after and say ‘Hey, that one thing you said really did great.’ And then that Friday, every Friday literally every one of my movies is destroyed. Everything, the reviews, they destroy them so much that I’m just like, ‘I can’t wait for my friends to see the movie and not read that sh*t and be affected by it.”
Sandler went on to say that he doesn’t even care when his movies get good — okay, maybe not good — adequate reviews, as he’s just completely over the entire movie critic industry.
“I swear to God, I don’t want [good reviews]. I don’t take them. When they say I’m good in something and someone calls me up and says, ‘Wow, the Village Voice said blah blah blah,’ I’m just like, ‘I don’t give a f*ck.”
In the meantime, Sandler has three more films left in his exclusive deal with Netflix. Which is great if you happen to still love Adam Sandler movies. And not so great for the other 99% of us — not that Sandler cares what we think.
