Dynamic duo: The best movies with Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston
Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston have starred in a number of movies together over the years, ranging from romantic comedies to family-friendly flicks. They are both icons of the 90s, with Sandler leading a string of cult classics and Aniston leading the seminal TV show Friends.
Their chemistry on-screen is undeniable, making them one of Hollywood’s favorite movie duos. They recently collaborated on the Netflix comedy Murder Mystery 2, so we thought now would be the perfect time to look back at the movies they have appeared in together and determine why they make such an endearing pairing.
Just Go With It (2011)
One of the duo’s most popular collaborations is 2011’s Just Go With It. The movie follows Danny (Sandler), a plastic surgeon who pretends to be a divorced man to hook up with random women. When he gets called out on the ruse, he asks his secretary (Aniston) to pose as his ex-wife, and they proceed to actually fall for each other.
The movie shows off Sandler’s signature brand of slapstick comedy while playing with the energy between him and Aniston. The goofiness of Sandler and the uptight persona of Anison make for an irresistible combination.
Murder Mystery (2019)
In 2019, Sandler and Aniston teamed up again for Murder Mystery. This time, the two play husband-and-wife Nick and Audrey Spitz, who are onboard a luxurious yacht when a murder takes place.
While the couple is originally mistaken as suspects by Scotland Yard inspector Taaj Manzoor (Adeel Akhtar), they soon become integral pieces to solving the mystery. This movie celebrates their chemistry as they attempt to outsmart each other while helping crack the case. It proved to be one of Netflix’s most successful comedies.
Murder Mystery 2 (2023)
The dynamic duo are back with Murder Mystery 2. There isn’t much that will surprise fans, but comedies like these are all about familiarity and execution, and the Netflix sequel has plenty of both. Sandler and Aniston are sharp as ever, and their interplay with the supporting cast ensures that things remain fresh.
Murder Mystery 2 has also gotten positive reviews from critics, with many hailing it as an improvement over the original. It’s very possible we will get a third installment at some point!
What Makes Them Such A Perfect Pair?
Sandler’s ability to deliver heartfelt moments along with outrageous humor has made him beloved by theatergoers all over the world, while Aniston has solidified her status as one of America’s sweethearts with her charmingly relatable characters.
When combined, William Morris agent Sarah Self notes that “they are unbeatable together, [they] bring humor that reaches audiences both young and old.” We couldn’t have said it any better.
Sandler and Aniston have had successful careers on their own but they are even better when paired together! Their movies not only bring effortless charm but a true sense of comedic timing that will keep viewers laughing!
