He doesn't need cash. The guy has got to be loaded out the wazzoo.
Anyway, there is one simple way to explain why Adam Sandler continues to make movies. Soem funny and stupid, but most just plain stupid.
His movies, for the most part(Click), are cheap too make, and in the end they turn a profit. He is most likely the highest paid person on the set without question(his production company is usually involved in his movies), and he gets his friends to work in these movies in small roles, for probably cheap prices(cheap according to Hollywood, and not the rest of the world, mind you), and the fact that they all actually "like" working together.
So cheaply made movie, plus a pretty good guaranteed return from distirbution in theaters/DVD/Blu-rays/etc..., and you get a nice profit is the main reason he gets work.
Other than that, most of his movies are so bad. But I have too admit, I liked Grown-ups. It made me laugh, and more importantly, remember that period in my own life as a kid growing up. We(Sandler and myself) are about the same age, and grew up in the Tri-state area(NY/NJ/Conn) at the same time.
