When Adam Sandler arrived at Saturday Night Live, he helped bring outrageous but hilarious comedy. He became part of the famous bad boys of SNL. This group helped lift SNL out of a 6 ft hole. Although he left on bad terms with SNL, he still left a legacy on the show that can’t be surpassed.

Photo Gallery- Snapshots of Adam’s classic characters
There are a couple of cons and flaws on here. The dvd is 73 minutes long. That’s not enough time to capture Adam’s impact on the show. There were no extras like scenes, or guest appearances like other SNL dvds.
Overall this is still a great dvd. I am glad to have this in my collection. This is a good buy for any SNL or Adam Sandler fan.
