25 years later, the worth remains to be fallacious.
Sure, on this date 25 years in the past — February 16, 1996 — a legend was born. It was the legend of a hockey participant who discovers a preternatural capability for golf. I communicate, in fact, of Glad Gilmore, the seminal Adam Sandler comedy that cemented the actor’s transition from Saturday Night time Reside forged member to full-fledged film star.
The primary evaluations weren’t nice — Roger Ebert gave the movie 1.5 stars and mentioned it was “the story of a violent sociopath.” However the film resonated with Sandler followers, grossing nearly $40 million in opposition to a $12 million price range, and rapidly turning into a perennial favourite on cable and residential video. And so, to commemorate this extraordinarily vital vacation, the Sandman posted a video to Twitter, the place for the primary time in 25 years (at the very least in response to him) he tried the basic Glad Gilmore working driver swing.
Who is aware of whether or not Sandler actually hasn’t finished this in a number of many years — or whether or not he required a number of takes for this video to get it proper — however he nailed a drive that will make Glad proud and make Shooter McGavin weep. Look ahead to your self beneath:
It’s too dangerous he did hit it so nicely, as a result of that meant Sandler couldn’t run as much as the ball and scream varied obscenities at it for not going within the gap. “Why didn’t you simply go dwelling? That’s your house! Are you too good in your dwelling? Reply me!” And so forth.
If you wish to watch Glad Gilmore tonight in honor of its anniversary, it’s at present streaming on HBO Max.
