Adam Sandler has made it extremely apparent that no matter how funny, or how unappealing his Happy Madison comedies may be, they are basically just excuses to take vacations with his friends. Fortunately for many movie studios,they also happen to make a ton of money or at least they did in the past, and that is why Adam Sandler keeps reusing the same jokes in every movie. Forbes has released their annual list of the most overpaid actors in Hollywood, and for the second year in a row, it's Sandler taking the honor of what is a surprising list of superstars.

Here is how Forbes gathers this information and declares how someone like Adam Sandler is overpriced
We look at the last three films each actor starred in before June 2014, since that was the end of our time frame for the Celeb 100. We don’t include animated films or movies where the actor appears in a cameo or a very small role, or movies that were released on fewer than 2,000 screens. We then look at the budget and revenue for each film (using numbers from Box Office Mojo and other sources) to come up with operating income. We add together the total compensation for each star on the three movies and the operating income from each movie and then divide to come up with the final return on investment number. (Via Forbes)
