Away from "SNL": Adam Sandler went on to make a string of hit movies in the mid- to late 1990s — notably "Billy Madison" and "Happy Gilmore" — and started Happy Madison Productions in 1999. Most recently, he returned to the silver screen this year with fellow "SNL" alumnus Andy Samberg in "That's My Boy," which critics widely panned.
