It was after his performance in this competition that everyone realized they were witnessing a talented comedian.

His debut on the screen came during his university years when he appeared in the comedy film "Going Overboard."

After graduating from university in 1991, Adam Sandler began actively appearing in films. His first two movies, "Billy Madison" and "Happy Gilmore," were quite successful. However, his next comedies, "The Waterboy" and "The Wedding Singer," went unnoticed by audiences and critics. In 1999, he starred in the film "Big Daddy," which he co-wrote with Tim Herlihy. The film unexpectedly featured Dylan and Cole Sprouse, twin brothers, as the carefree main character's sudden son. This film brought Sandler tremendous international success, making him recognizable in Russia. It also had excellent box office results, grossing over $200 million. Sandler then took on more serious roles, deviating from his usual comedic persona. He appeared in the romantic comedy "Punch-Drunk Love," directed by Paul Thomas Anderson, which was well-received by audiences. He followed it up with the dramas "Spanglish" and "Reign Over Me," the latter of which tells the story of a man who lost his family in the September 11, 2001 tragedy. Sandler continued to showcase his comedic talents in the film "Click." He portrayed a former football player who ends up in prison and is offered a reduced sentence if he can assemble a team of inmates to play against the prison guards. The film provided plenty of humor that was universally understood and lacked any political undertones. In addition, it also contained dramatic moments, with Sandler's character carrying the emotional weight. Another notable film during this period was the romantic comedy "50 First Dates," in which Sandler starred alongside Drew Barrymore. Sandler played a man who had to win the heart of Barrymore's character every day because she suffered from memory loss and couldn't remember their previous encounters. The film was well-received by audiences and further cemented Sandler's status as a versatile actor. He also starred in the family film "Bedtime Stories," where he shared the screen with Keri Russell and comedian Russell Brand. Sandler played a hotel handyman who told bedtime stories that magically came true. The film was produced by Walt Disney Pictures.
