    I'd say Match Point is probably his most fully realized film, followed by Hannah and Her Sisters and Broadway Danny Rose....

    Sandler update: my wife saw him at a park in Rosedale yesterday. He wore his sneakers into the kiddie splash pad, and if that's not a sign of existential despair I don't know what is.
