If you love a good Adam Sandler movie then you’re not alone. In fact, Netflix viewers are apparently MAJOR Sandler fans and have watched his movies for more than 500 million hours.

This sounds like a crazy number of hours, but the actor does have a lot of movies to choose from. Surprisingly, Sandler’s bigger hits like, Billy Madison and Happy Gilmore, aren’t currently on Netflix, but his other films are getting a LOT of views.

According to Netflix’s Q1 earnings report via Time, Sandler’s movies have been one of the top-viewed actor’s works on the streaming site.

Ever since the release of Ridiculous 6 in December 2015, the site revealed that Sandler’s films have been watched for more than half a billion hours. What? That’s insane.

With so many subscribers tuning into all-things Sandler, it makes total sense why Netflix signed on for the comedian’s latest Netflix original project, Sandy Wexler, and beyond.

“Just ahead of the release of our third film from Adam Sandler, Sandy Wexler, we announced the renewal of our deal with Sandler to premiere an additional four films exclusively on Netflix around the world,” Netflix wrote on their press release. “We continue to be excited by our Sandler relationship and our members continue to be thrilled with his films.”

Who knew everyone loved Sandler so much? Okay, we love him and his comedic timing, but his movies are rarely large box office hits, so this amount of views is totally surprising to us.

We are however totally intrigued to see what else the actor comes up with for Netflix and their next four films!

Sandy Wexler is currently streaming on Netflix.
