One of the biggest Hollywood paydays was recorded in 2014 when Netflix signed a four-picture deal with Adam Sandler for $250 million or $62.5 million per movie. Though those films turned out to be some of Sandler’s most critically reviled works, they apparently attracted a lot of viewers on Netflix that the streamer decided to renew the deal twice: first in 2017 and again in 2020.

Sandler’s Netflix original movies include The Ridiculous 6 (2015), The Do-Over (2016), Sandy Wexler (2017), The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected) (2017), The Week Of (2018), Adam Sandler 100% Fresh (2018), Murder Mystery (2019), and Hubie Halloween (2020).
