We've Watched Two Billion Hours Of Adam Sandler So Netflix Has Given Him Four More Movies

We've Watched Two Billion Hours Of Adam Sandler So Netflix Has Given Him Four More Movies

Netflix has announced that they're going to give Adam Sandler a contract to make four more movies.

Yes, that's four more feature length Sandman specials. After the success of Uncut Gems, you'd have to say that can only be a good thing, right?

Announcing the bold move, the world's biggest streaming platform also divulged some frankly ridiculous figures regarding the enduring popularity of Sandler amongst their viewers.

They tweeted: "Ya'll watched 2 billion - yes *billion* - hours of Sandler on Netflix. Now the Sandman is making four more movies at Netflix."

Two. Billion. Hours.

Imagine how long two billion hours is. That's right, you can't. That's because it's an absolutely unfathomably long amount of time.

The average lifetime contains - according to some pretty crude online search based research - 692,040 hours.

Imagine if three people spent every waking moment of their life watching Adam Sandler films. OK, so that would pretty much be a form of torture, but it still wouldn't account for the amount of hours that we've all cumulatively been watching him.

Incidentally, whilst he's appeared in such comedy classics as Big Daddy, Happy Gilmore, Billy Madison and - of course - The Waterboy, it's Sandler's latest effort that has many people talking about how he's actually a really great actor, as well as being a fantastic funnyman.

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."

Seriously, it's worth your time.

Oh, and - according to some more top-level research - the film features the seventh most F bombs in movie history.

In case you're interested, above it in the list are masterpieces such as The Wolf of Wall Street, Casino, and Summer of Sam.

Anyway, Sandler's performance is so good that there has been a lot of chat about how he managed to miss out on a nod from the Academy at this year's Oscars.

Well, at least he has got the two billion hours of watch time to fall back on. That and a load of cash, which probably helps.
