    This. "Billy Madison" is another example. My parents had it rented from Blockbuster, I had a few friends over for a birthday sleepover, Blizzard of 96 hits (and yes to NoVa 3 feet is a lot of snow) and they're stuck there for 4-5 days, and we watched it roughly 20 times. I can see to the normal person how it could objectively not be a good movie, but to me it will always be legendary.

      It's like that for most stupid comedies. People find something they like about it, be it their current age, situation, etc., and it just clicks with them. Sandler has made a lot of those movies. I was in high school and college when he was making his first round of movies, and I love them - Billy Madison, Happy Gilmore, and a couple others escaping me right now. Meanwhile, I see some his newer stuff, and while I know it's the same type of comedy, they're just bad.

      However, there are movies like Airplane!, which had a ton of stupid comedy, and all of that's really a front for some very smart jokes snuck in there, if you're paying attention. (Look into the details regarding the scene at the start of the movie with the guy stuck waiting in the cab.)

              • Billy Madison is just a bunch of random skits put together. It is funny but mediocre as a movie. (the lines are great though) Happy Gilmore is leaps and bounds better. Plus Julie Bowen! (not that Mrs. Sampras isnt delightful!)
