    HAPPY GILMORE is definitely one of my favorites. It's available in Region 1 in full screen, but in widescreen in Region 2 I believe.

    I have Happy Gilmore Region 2 DVD and it is widescreen, If you have a multi-region get it.
    As for the rest they are all good !
    The Waterboy, Billy Madison, The Wedding Singer, Little Nicky.
    I love them all
    Regards,
    Ricky

    Adam Sandler is almost never an acquired taste. His silly, instinctive and absurdist approach to comedy is not for everyone and most people either love him or hate him almost immediately. I found the Wedding Singer to be his most accessible (and entertaining) film. I enjoyed Happy Gilmore for it's gleefull stupidity and surrealist dream sequences.
    If that weren't bizarre enough, his pairing with Emily Watson in PT Anderson's latest film...? [​IMG]
    Cheers,

    Billy Madison and Happy Gilmore are his two best movies(IMO of course). On the other hand, stay away from The Waterboy. This is by far his worst movie(IMO again).

    Hey fella . . . I bet you're still livin' in your parent's cellar . . . downloading pictures of Sarah Michelle Gellar . . . and posting "Me too!" like some brain-dead AOL-er . . . I should do the world a favor and cap ya' like Old Yeller . . . you're just about as useless as MPEGs [sic] to Hellen Keller.

    I bought the LD for Bulletproof. That movie is funny and kinda neat. "You look like a struck match". If its on DVD (not sure), then I'd recommend it as an Adam Sandler DVD.

    Little Nicky was a hoot. Aside from Big Daddy, I like them all and have most of them on VHS.
