Adam Richard Sandler, an American actor, comedian, and director, was born on September 9, 1966. From 1990 to 1995, he was a cast member of Saturday Night Live before moving on to star in a number of Hollywood blockbusters that have grossed over $2 billion at the box office. In 2020, Sandler’s net worth was projected to be $420 million, and he inked a new four-movie agreement with Netflix worth more than $250
Paul Thomas Anderson’s romantic comedy-drama Punch-Drunk Love was released in 2002 and starred Adam Sandler, Emily Watson, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Luis Guzmán, and Mary Lynn Rajskub. It follows a socially anxious entrepreneur who falls in love with his sister’s colleague.
Revolution Studios and New Line Cinema produced the film, which was distributed by Columbia Pictures. In the style of visual interludes, it contains Jeremy Blake’s video art. The picture earned great reviews from critics, and Sandler’s performance was praised widely, but it failed to recoup its $25 million production budget at the box office.
On October 11, 2002, the picture had a limited American release, grossing $118,539 from five cinemas. It went on to gross $17.8 million in the United States and $6.8 million internationally, for a total of $24.6 million at the box office globally.
