"He's that funny guy we all knew in high school who was smart enough to make it look easy ..."---classmate Kate Meyers in Entertainment Weekly, February 17, 1995.
"My Uncle Murray explained why I don't drink. He said my bris was the first taste of wine I had, so when I got older, I thought everytime I had alcohol someone was going to stick my penis."---Adam Sandler to Movieline, March 1995.
About trying to make "The Wedding Singer" a movie like 1983's "National Lampoon's Vacation": "I remember going to movies when I was growing up in the 80s and you'd leave that theater with your friends, laughing and having a good time and feeling good. And that's what we tried to do with this movie. There are moments when your heart hurts a little. But it makes you feel good about life."---Adam Sandler quoted in USA Today, February 13, 1998.
"Sandler is [Jim] Carrey or Jerry Lewis without the physical dexterity, Danny Kaye without the verbal grace, Steve Martin without the patrician veneer. In the longer movie view, he's Abbott without Costello. ... What can we say? People want to laugh at anything. Sandler happens."---Richard Corliss writing in Time, November 23, 1998.
"It's important I surround myself with people who make me happy."---Sandler quoted in Chicago Sun-Times, November 19, 1998.
"You've seen his movies? That's the way he was here. ... I can't believe he's making all that money for things he was being punished for here. I thought he would grow up. Instead he grew rich."---Isabel Pellerin, Sandler's high school disciplinarian, quoted in People, November 30, 1998.
