Three popular comedy movies starring Adam Sandler. In 'Big Daddy' (1999), Sonny Koufax (Sandler) is a 32-year-old loser who refuses to take responsibility for his life and spends his days watching television in his pyjamas. The day after his girlfriend Vanessa (Kristy Swanson) dumps him, five-year-old Julian (Cole and Dylan Sprouse) arrives at his house, claiming to be the son of his recently departed flatmate. Sonny then mistakenly decides that adopting Julian will impress Vanessa, only to discover that there is more to parenting than meets the eye. In 'Spanglish' (2004), a beautiful native Mexican woman Flor (Paz Vega), the mother of an equally stunning 12-year-old, becomes the housekeeper for an affluent Los Angeles family (Sandler, Tea Leoni and Anne Bancroft). Of all the horrifying pitfalls she worried about in this new culture, Flor had never fathomed the peril of being truly embraced by an upscale American family. 'Mr Deeds' (2002) is a modern update of the 1936 Frank Capra classic 'Mr Deeds Goes to Town'. Adam Sandler takes on the Gary Cooper role of smalltown poet and pizzeria owner, Longfellow Deeds, who inherits $40 billion from his uncle and sets off for New York to take over his new business empire, bringing his smalltown values with him. Television reporter Babe Bennett (Winona Ryder) poses as an innocent smalltown girl in order to dig up any dirt on him, but, despite her best efforts, finds him to be nothing other than a gentleman, and even falls for him.
