We don't know yet.In "They're All Going to Laugh at Him," we watch every single Sandler related movie (in a row, 1 per day) and discuss the artistic merit, the meta-Sandlerverse, and the message behind the movies.Jess uses her skills and experience as an English teacher to explain the movies through literary critique, particularly through the lens of feminist and queer theory.Alex laughs when people fall down.

Rank #1: #61 – Hubie Halloween

Podcast cover

Episode Notes

The SEQUEL to Happy Gilmore, and the Spiritual successor of The Waterboy, and the alternate reality of The Canteen boy mix to make a pretty decent movie. Back to the strong-man motif found in early Sandler and making a hero from a possible villian.

Look at this photo! What?!?! https://twitter.com/LaughAtHimPod/status/1313993803624218624?s=20

Also, we are rusty. It's a 3 Star Sandlayer film. Also also I used a new audio editor so those little issues are me not your player, real sorry the 3rd word made me sound like that.

Episode Notes

Jess & Alex invite Shawn Kohne the original architect of "The Sandlerverse" onto the show. They discuss how The Wrong Missy might be a sequel to Little Nicky, and definitely has some dark magic in it, they talk about the nature of the full Happy Madison film collection, then Alex submits an addition to "The Sandlerverse".

Also, this ain't the last of us! We went 60 for 60 but get ready for a few more treats!

Rank #3: #59 – Murder Mystery

Podcast cover

Episode Notes

Jess & Alex watch Murder Mystery and it is a generally good time, with a whole bunch of murder mystery references, some mentions of the upper class being garbage, and finally cops sucking at their jobs. It kinda hits the spot.

Also, shrimp are all evil and made of poison.

Rank #4: #58 – Uncut Gems

Podcast cover
Read more

Episode Notes

Jess & Alex watch Uncut Gems and discuss the film as a way to evoke emotion rather than show a plot, how Akira, Star Wars, Steinbeck, Jewish Lore, Gemology, Greek Mythology all touch to make you feel anxious, and also how you can not commit crimes in Minecraft.

Also, is this destiny? Or is Howard in a time loop? We don't talk about it inside. But we did in another loop.

Podcast cover
Read more

Episode Notes

Jess and Alex watch the 3rd Hotel Transylvania movie and discuss the portrayal of nazis as villains, why de-radicalization of the alt-right is a good thing (but this movie was iffy on it), and how much this movie is taken out of the Happy Madison hands.

Also, Jess and Alex argue over the practicality of a soup filled bread-stick for most of the episode.

Rank #7: #55 – The Week Of

Episode Notes

Jess & Alex watch The Week Of and talk about the very direct message of differences in culture between classes, how music (and the perception of music) are seen by different people, and a very direct relation of calling trump a corrupt piece of garbage.

Also, Alex has a lot of thoughts about Billy Joel but almost no answers.

Episode Notes

Jess @ Alex invite Mike Klamerus to watch The Meyerowitz Stories and discuss the actual great artistic appeal of the movie, the icky feeling of involving your children in your art, and finally TTRPGs and their intersection with this game specifically.

Also, why they never let Adam Sandler finish his sent

Episode Notes

Jess & Alex watch Sandy Wexler and talk about the frustration of not being let into an inside joke, argue about if there was no chemistry or it was simply an allegory for success, and finally that maybe there is a reason for lying so much but probably Alex just loves to lie.

Also, Happy Madison is the Fast & Furious of comedy.

Rank #10: #52 – The Do Over

Episode Notes

Jess & Alex Watch The Do Over and talk about the very solid little detective thriller that they came up with, the incredible blatant anti big pharma message they push forward, and if and how this movie pushes misogynistic or homophobic viewpoints.

Also, I feel like Jenga was metaphor for something and I just didn't get it.
