Heartwarming theory why Adam Sandler casts Rob Schneider in so many movies

Heartwarming theory why Adam Sandler casts Rob Schneider in so many movies

The theory as to why Adam Sandler casts Rob Schneider is so many of his films is a rather heartwarming one

If you are a bit of a film junkie, you'll know that Adam Sandler and Rob Schneider appear in a lot of films together.

Yes, the comedy geniuses have enjoyed huge amounts of success on their own, but there is no questioning they are absolutely comedy gold when paired together.

And to say they've starred together in a few films is an understatement, to say the least.

In fact, let's just list all the films Sandler and Schneider have done together.

The full list so far is: 50 First Dates, Bedtime Stories, Big Daddy, Click, Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo, Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo, Eight Crazy Nights, Grown Ups, I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry, Little Nicky, Mr. Deeds, Ridiculous 6, The Animal, The Benchwarmers, The Hot Chick, The Longest Yard, The Waterboy, You Don’t Mess With The Zohan.

Got all that?

Now, some fans have got a theory as to why the comedy duo follow each other around everywhere they go in the industry.

On Quora, one fan asked why Sandler and Schneider appear in so many films together, and one particular theory is a rather interesting one.

It comes from a man named Bob Smith, who referred to a pact a handful of Saturday Night Live comedians apparently had.

The rumoured pact said: "If any of them made it big after their run at SNL was over the person who did would try their best to look after the others by making sure they got roles in their movies."

The pact is said to have included Sandler, Schneider, David Spade and Chris Rock.

I suppose it does make sense, it would explain why Rock is absent from so many of Sandler's gigs, as he is essentially too famous in his own right.

While Schneider doesn't need handouts, he is certainly less of a big name than Rock and Sandler, and working with an actor such as the Sandler can't hurt.

Do you believe in the theory.

Another actor who shares the screen with Sandler an awful lot is Steve Buscemi, with the Reservoir Dogs actor praising the Grown Ups star for taking care of him in the film industry.

After accepting the Mark Twain Prize for American Humour, Buscemi joked: “I was a serious actor before I met you, man! I did edgy indies. Have you ever tried that? I’m not talking about playing yourself in Unedited Gems.

"The whole time I was watching it I was thinking, ‘Stay in your lane, Waterboy'."

Taking a serious turn, Buscemi thanked Sandler for his support, adding: “He does this for all his friends, he does this for so many people, all of the guys you came up with, they're either writing, or directing, or producing, or acting in your films.

"I love it when you scream s**t at me off camera, like funny things to say, and I just try to say them like you and then when I hear you laugh at the funny thing you told me to say I’m in heaven. I love it.”
