Adam Sandler Reflects On Getting Harsh Reviews For Billy Madison And His Other Early Movies: ‘They Hate Us’


Adam Sandler is no stranger to criticism. Since his first starring role in Billy Madison, a film that the SNL alum co-wrote, he has had to deal with critics writing harsh words about him and his collaborator’s hard work. Negative reviews aren’t an aspect of the job the comedy star says he had a concept of when he got into the business at the young age of 17. He recently revealed in an interview that all he was concerned about when he began acting was the fact his name might appear in New York!–a publication he grew up reading. Sandler soon realized dealing with critics was part of being in entertainment. Though bad reviews can be a demoralizing aspect of the work, the actor says he tries to remain optimistic when it comes to poor reviews of his comedies.

Sandler, now 56, revealed in a recent interview promoting his critically praised basketball dramedy, Hustle, that when Madison was released, he was shocked by the amount of hate the film received. According to the actor, 90% of the reviews called the film “garbage.” He told Netflix via Entertainment Weekly:

When I was 17, and I got into this, I didn’t think about critics … I didn’t even realize that stuff was coming. I just thought you made movies, people go see it. When Billy Madison came out, me and my friend who wrote it. We were just like, ‘Oh yeah, they’re going to write about this in New York!’ We grew up reading the papers, we were going to NYU. And then we read the first one and we were like, ‘Oh my god, what happened? They hate us.’ And then we were like, ‘It must have been this paper,’ but then 90 percent of the papers are going ‘This is garbage.’
