Ben Stiller in Greenberg

Adam Sandler
Of all the major stars today, not many cause such a divisive "love him or hate him" argument like Adam Sandler. Though if one can make it through the outstretched arms of his rabid fan base, and before you reach the angry mobs of critics and "haters" there is a very fascinating middle ground of people who are "intrigued" to say the least with Sandler's acting ability (in full disclosure the author of this piece falls into that "intrigued middle ground"). When given the right script Sander has proven time after time that he has true acting ability (see numbers 1, 3 and 5), and the intrigue ...

Funny Film Cameos

Ben Stiller

Others pay tribute to that actor's work in a similar role, but they are all for the most part hilarious. Following are 10 of film's funniest cameos in no particular order:
