Watch: Wild ‘Sandlerverse’ Theory Shows How Every Adam Sandler Movie Is Related
By Louise Jane Cher, 29 Jan 2016
We have seen several theories of how Disney films and Pixar films share the same universe, but here is an entirely different one altogether.
Los Angeles-based actor/comedian Shawn Kohne has put together a wild, but well-thought-out theory of how Adam Sandler’s movies are connected in a single ‘Sandlerverse’.
There are a multitude of cross references and parallels between the movies—for example, the “10-second Tom” of 50 First Dates is a reference to Blended, while Dan Patrick plays the same cop in The Longest Yard and I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry.
Apart from movies, Kohne’s detailed analysis also covers Sandler’s songs and appearances on TV. Nevertheless, Sandler’s co-writer and collaborator Tim Herlihy has commented that he had “missed about 50”—possibly referring to cross-references that Kohne’s ‘Sandlerverse’ did not cover.
