Those Adam Sandler quotes in the Netflix press release are among the most toe-curlingly awful that have ever been committed to print.

We’ll have to agree with Mr. Garrahan. Not only does Mr. Sandler seem to take pride in the mediocrity of his movies/paydays for his washed-up comedian friends: he also enjoys adding the lamest possible quotes to press releases. From Netflix PR:
“People love Adams films on Netflix and often watch them again and again. His appeal spans across viewers of all ages — everybody has a favorite movie, everyone has a favorite line — not just in the US but all over the world, said Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos.”
Every journalist’s favorite line from the always well-spoken Mr. Sandler:
“When these fine people came to me with an offer to make four movies for them, I immediately said yes for one reason and one reason only . Netflix rhymes with Wet Chicks. Let the streaming begin!!!!“
While we ponder whether Sandler wrote all four exclamation points himself, let’s consider the number of outlets that used the quote in headlines this morning.
At least the man knows his audience.
