Adam Sandler has been blessing us with laughs and good stories for the best part of three decades.

While some of his later stuff has been panned by critics, that doesn't make his legendary movies like The Waterboy and Billy Madison any less funny.

He's certainly got a distinctive look however it seems like there are plenty of people around the world who look just like him.

There's even a Facebook group titled 'People Who Sort Of Look Like Adam Sandler But Aren't Adam Sandler' and it's filled with Sandler doppelgangers.


The group has more than 273,000 followers, many of whom submit their 'ordinary person Adam Sandler' lookalike.

There are some pretty impressive doppelgangers in the group and then there are also some one where you're probably thinking 'yikes this was drawing a long bow'.

Many also add their ratings on how alike they think the picture is to the Hollywood star.

"9.5/10 this is a good Sandler, hair cut and dress sense add to the look, very similar. Rate this one quite high," writes one person on one photo.


There is sometimes a bit of contention about the photo in question, however the page isn't seeking to find the most alike Sandler.

The admin of the page recently wrote: "Either people have abysmal facial recognition and lack any nuance or they miss the point of the page and expect exact doppelgängers every time."

If you're a bit of a fan of Adam's work then no doubt you'll be looking forward to his upcoming Netflix movie that has got a lot of attention.


Crime thriller Uncut Gems things take an interesting change of direction for the actor who usually plays in comedy, as he steps into the shoes of charismatic jeweller Howard Rayner.

The synopsis listed on Rotten Tomatoes reads: "From acclaimed filmmakers Josh and Benny Safdie comes an electrifying crime thriller about Howard Ratner (Adam Sandler), a charismatic New York City jeweller always on the lookout for the next big score.

"When he makes a series of high-stakes bets that could lead to the windfall of a lifetime, Howard must perform a precarious high-wire act, balancing business, family and encroaching adversaries on all sides, in his relentless pursuit of the ultimate win."

Directed by Benny and Josh Safdie, Uncut Gems premiered at the end of August at the Telluride Film Festival - which saw critics come away with glowing reviews.

Eric Kohn from Indiewire also loved the film, writing: "Uncut Gems won't sit well with anyone who prefers protagonists easy to like or stories with a clean moral compass.

"But there's a genuine subversive glee involved in following Howard through his inane quest for all the money he can score, and watching him set himself up for failure with such conviction the whole way through."

Uncut Gems is released in the US on 25 December.
