It's easy to understand how he came into fame since there was a time where he made some good movies and was one of the better SNL alumni from that generation. But the further his career went on, the less I found myself all that interested in what he was making. I certainly gave most of it a chance but there was a shift somewhere in the middle of his career where he just seemed to start phoning everything in.

During the comedian's early days he was basically just trying to get in the door (to this day I can still recall the radio ads with Sandler begging people to go see his first film Billy Madison). Then he got famous and as any self respecting actor/comedian will tell you, with fame comes more control and with more control means less collaboration.
