      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Audiences who enjoy Adam Sandler's belligerent comic energy may find him in joyously obnoxious form as Billy Madison, but this thinly-plotted starring vehicle surrounds its star with an aggressively pedestrian movie.

      Janet Maslin New York Times If you've ever had a yen to relive the third grade, this must be the next best thing. Mar 31, 2019 Full Review John Petrakis Chicago Tribune Billy Madison is a textbook example of a half-decent idea that never got developed beyond the "lying around drinking beer and making jokes with your buddy" stage. Rated: 0.5/4 Mar 31, 2019 Full Review Gene Siskel Chicago Tribune The latest entry in the American cinema's investigation of dumb-and-dumber heroes. Rated: 1/4 Mar 31, 2019 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review Viewed as an absurdist comedy by many, Billy Madison is nonetheless the product of a director who specializes in cautionary tales about the temptations of sin putting one's soul in jeopardy. Rated: 3/4 Mar 3, 2022 Full Review Mal Vincent The Virginian-Pilot Sandler, who shows every sign of having enough energy to make the grade, should forget about imitating Jim Carrey and find an act of his own. Rated: 1/4 Mar 1, 2022 Full Review David Nusair Reel Film Reviews ...an exceedingly (and unabashedly) silly premise that's employed to mostly watchable (yet undeniably erratic) effect by Davis... Rated: 2.5/4 Nov 30, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews

      alan g Unbelievable drek of a movie. Bad acting, bad script, bad plot. Adam Sandler should be barred from making movies. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 05/15/24 Full Review Timothy T One of Sandlers Best!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/12/24 Full Review Jack S This movie sucks. Disappointing Adam Sandler movie. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/13/24 Full Review James A The movie is funny and more enjoyable than it has a right to be (some viewers may be shy to admit that). Adam Sandler is good as the title character, and Chris Farley provides fantastic support in a small role. "Who would steal 30 bagged lunches?" Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 09/14/23 Full Review Jason M In general, there are two types of people in the world: Those who got a snack pack and those who didn't. Neither grew up to like this movie, but I do know a guy, and him and her wooohweeeh if ya know what I mean. Ok not him but a friend of his. They didn't like the movie either. But man oh man I'm glad I called that guy. I was meaning to get together with him for coffee because it had been a while. So we did, and his wife came too. She was NOT invited, but she told me she liked this movie. So I married her immediately and we have a family of 5 now. And for those who want to cast blame all I'll say is Eric was Not getting the company, and when I say "the company" I mean "his wife". Now sometimes my sonny says "he called the shite poop Dad" and I just know it was all worth it. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 08/16/23 Full Review L L This is a goofball classic. You know there are these type of movies you watched as a kid, and thought they were hysterical, but as an adult it's just not the same. This still stands up as being hilarious. Yes, it's stupid, but that's why it's funny. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 07/21/23 Full Review Read all reviews
