Rob Schneider .. dear God.
I love Rob. Maybe I'll create another lounge in his honor someday. :P

I've seen 3 of his and voted them 2, 3 and 3 on IMDb (OldAle1, remember how you called me a generous rater? This is where the trash votes go out to). Around the World in 80 Days (2004) has likeable leads with Jackie Chan & Owen Wilson, still a piece of crap. Zookeeper .. I don't know and don't really want to try it. Kevin James films seem to be just so lame and stupid, and even he is a likeable guy, actually.

The other frequent director of Sandler is Dennis Dugan; a big part of his filmography are Adam Sandler flicks, which I haven't seen all. Problem Child (1990) & Beverly Hills Ninja (1997) don't give me high hopes that Dugan becomes a great director for comedy as soon as you remove the Sandlerage from the bill. The Benchwarmers (2006) .. have not seen it, again, but there they are, one more time: Rob Schneider, David Spade, Jon Heder .. not a good sign.
This is interesting, I've never really paid much attention to who directed these movies. I'm noticing a lot of those little red squares (low metascores) for both of these directors. :sweat: I've seen five of Dennis Dugan's movies, with ratings ranging from 4 to 8. From Frank Coraci I've seen four movies (two 6s and two 7s).
