Sandler made his name in the 1990s with comedies like The WaterboyHappy Gilmore, and Billy Madison, but has not enjoyed the same box-office success as of late. His last two major releases—Pixels, in which Earth is attacked by aliens in the style of old-school arcade games, and Blended, a romantic comedy with Drew Barrymore, barely broke even in the US, according to Box Office Mojo. Both titles more than made up the differences overseas, though.

Sandler became one of the first major movie stars to trade theaters for Netflix’s tens of millions of global subscribers when he inked his first deal the with service in 2014. And he’s clearly finding an audience. His films also don’t have the same pressure to perform there as they would at the cinema, which is driven by tentpole titles like Beauty and the Beast and Logan.

At Netflix, Sandler’s films fit firmly in the comedy genre the platform has been cultivating through projects with comedians like Dave Chappelle, Chris Rock, Chelsea Handler, and Amy Schumer.

His movies have also been among the most high-profile original films on the platform, which started out with more niche and arthouse fare like Beasts of No Nation, starring Idris Elba, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny, and The Little Prince.

Netflix has since landed streaming deals with some of the biggest movie stars in the world including Bollywood’s Shah Rukh Khan, as well as original features with Brad Pitt, Will Smith, and Tom Hardy, and renowned filmmakers like Martin Scorsese and Ridley Scott.
