#6. Bulletproof

Adam Sandler plays Moses, a car thief with a friend named Keats (played by Daman Wayans), who unknowingly to Moses is an undercover cop. Keats' main goal in this movie is to capture a drug lord named Frank Colton. When he goes with Moses to meet him, Moses find's out hes a cop, and shoots him. Having lived, Keats returns to his job, to not only catching Frank Colton, but Moses as well.

I feel I should warn that this movie is not completely a comedy like most of Adam Sandler's movies. Although it does have some humor in it.

      I've seen all of these movies - I voted for 50 first dates in the poll, but it was so hard to choose. I really, really liked Rein Over Me too. We also recently watched Grown Ups, it was a good one!
