We know Adam Sandler is funny. We know he got his start on "Saturday Night Live." We know he casts his friends in a lot of his movies (we're looking at you, Rob Schneider). But, do you know how he got his start in comedy? Do you know the subtle easter eggs a lot of his films contain? No? Well, don't worry, because we're here to fill you in!
Before his new movie, "Grown Ups 2," hits theaters this week, check out 15 things you (probably) didn't know about Sandler.
Fans of Sandler's movies may have picked up on this tidbit -- several of his movies reference the sport, or feature cameos from professional wrestlers. For example, "Captain Insano" was Bobby Boucher's favorite can-of-whoop-ass-opening wrestler in 1998's "The Waterboy," and he was played by real-life WWE star Big Show. You'll find references in a bunch of his other movies, too, including, "Billy Madison," "Big Daddy," "Little Nicky," and "The Longest Yard."
