Monster and Monkey:
Adam Sandler was one of the great comedy actors and writers of the late-nineties; setting the benchmark with a string of titles that included both Billy Madison and Happy Gilmore. These were the films that made him a star, generating a huge following for his style of comedy, but as the years have gone-by it seems that the ideas are slowly diminishing, as Sandler continues to scrape the barrel. Has his raw talent and charismatic character creations become tiresome and predictable? Or are we seeing a man whose writing style is maturing with age as he does, with his near-twenty years in the spotlight?
