The Obsessive Viewer Podcast – Ep 65 – Summer of Sandler Part II – 2000-2004



 OV65 – Summer of Sandler Part II – 2000-2004

The guys are back for the second installment of their Summer of Sandler series where they examine the career of Adam Sandler and ask the unanswerable question of whether or not the Sandman is actually funny or a product of youthful perception.

In Part 2, the guys discuss Little Nicky, Mr. Deeds. Punch-Drunk Love, Eight Crazy Nights, Anger Management, 50 First Dates and Spanglish.

The discussion ran long so there is no Potpourri this week, but check back next week for an extended potpourri episode.

Runtime: 1:26:21
