Those unfamiliar with Sandler's antics may...begin to find him annoying sometime between the appearance of the Universal logo and the end of the opening credits.

If you've ever had a yen to relive the third grade, this must be the next best thing.

Director Tamra Davis and screenwriters Sandler and Tim Herlihy scatter the bad jokes like fertilizer. Nothing sprouts.

As one character tells Billy in the finale: "Everyone in this room is dumber for having listened to you."

It's refreshing to revisit the jester in his screen infancy, when all he wanted was to boogie to a Culture Club hit, carry on conversations with hair care products, and sit on a sprinkler.

Young teens will like brash, immature humor.
-Alex OrnerFull Review
The film should have featured more absurd and nonsensical elements.
When you get that Sandler's comedic persona is meant to be annoying, like Beavis and Butthead or Cartman, the laughs come thick and fast.

Wipe that smug grin off your face and go home.

A vintage specimen of a master at the apex of his talents.

Duh-m Sandler, typical fare for him
Sandler's best. Edgy, satirical, bizarre and surreal.
Better than it deserves to be.

So ha uma coisa pior do que os habituais trejeitos (nada engracados) de Adam Sandler: os roteiros que este escreve - e o segredo de seu sucesso nas bilheterias e um misterio maior do que o paradeiro de Jimmy Hoffa.
The best film Sandler has done. Wildy funny and appropriately over the top.
Okay, the plot is inane, but it's the basis of a series of really funny scenes.

Adam Sandler being a total idiot for an hour and a half. Good fun.
-Stefan Birgir Stefansson
Idiotic, amateurish - and really, really funny.
-Scott WeinbergFull Review
Is this how one conducts a career these days?

Yet another forgettable and asinine entry into the Adam Sandler oeuvre, Billy Madison is ridiculous and stupid yet, ashamedly, made me laugh from time to time.

Like so many Saturday Night Live skits, this film comes up with some interesting ideas but then doesn't have a clue what to do with them. Also like that show, this movie is just not funny.
