Netflix Says Users Have Watched 500 Million Hours of Adam Sandler Movies

by Matt Singer 5 days ago
One of Netflix’s biggest deals so far in the original movie space was with Adam Sandler, who signed on to make four films with the streaming service, and then recently re-upped with the online media titan for another four masterpieces. Maybe you have seen some of their collaborations so far, The Ridiculous 6, The Do-Over, and the just-released Sandy Wexler. If the figures Netflix just released are accurate, the odds are you have.

Cannes Film Festival
Good morning! Chances are that you’re just getting up and at ’em now, but a few time zones ahead in sunny France, the film industry has had a busy day. This morning saw the official announcement of the Cannes Film Festival’s class of 2017, with the full Competition and Un Certain Regard slates announced by head honcho Thierry Frémaux in a live press conference in the wee small hours of this morning. As ever, the Competition lineup (the most prestigious program in the world’s most prestigious film festival) boasts a deep roster of cinema’s most respected auteurs, ready to pull back the curtain on some tantalizing-sounding new projects. But let’s not talk around the real news here: Adam Sandler’s going to Cannes, baby.

Yet Another Adam Sandler Movie Coming to Netflix, Except This One Will Be Good

by Charles Bramesco April 11, 2017 @ 8:33 AM
Netflix, for all their diverting original series and Bong Joon-ho subsidization, has also been responsible for the introduction of a great evil into the world. I am referring, of course, to their seemingly infinite-picture development deal with chronic Phoner-of-It-In Adam Sandler. Netflix signed Sandler to a four-movie deal back in 2014, which has been going decidedly less-than-great so far — his Western spoof The Ridiculous Six was a big pile of donkey turds, and the trailer for his upcoming Sandy Wexler has not inspired much more confidence. When the news hit a few weeks ago that Netflix would re-up their deal with Sandler for four more movies, our coverage of the notice contained the words “oh no.”

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it looks like you’re going to have to throw your computer out the window. I’m sorry, but there’s simply no other plausible reaction to the following news. Adam Sandler isn’t just releasing two more movies on Netflix, he’s releasing six.

Adam Sandler Is Pretty Much ‘The Waterboy’ in Trailer for Netflix’s ‘Sandy Wexler’

2017 is already rough as hell, and now Netflix has to go and make it even harder to get through. Remember how Netflix made a four-picture deal with Adam Sandler? I regret to inform you that we’re only halfway through that deal. Following The Ridiculous 6 and The Do-Over, we still have two more Sandler movies on the way. One of those movies is Sandy Wexler.

‘Sandy Wexler’ Trailer: Adam Sandler Returns to 1994, Which Is the Last Time You Probably Liked Adam Sandler

If you didn’t like The Ridiculous 6 or The Do-Over, don’t worry — Netflix isn’t giving up just yet. The streaming service is determined to make you love Adam Sandler again, and this time, they’re taking him back to 1994, which is probably the last time he was genuinely entertaining (OK, with the exception of The Wedding Singer). Yep, there’s another new Sandler movie coming to Netflix; behold, the first trailer for Sandy Wexler.

No one was exactly over the moon for another Kevin James family sitcom, and some recent showrunner shifts for CBS’ Kevin Can Wait can certainly attest to that, but the series will at least get one notable boost. Reports reveal Adam Sandler will take a break from his Netflix deal to guest on his friend’s show, just as he’d done for King of Queens.

‘The Do-Over’ Is a Bad Movie But It’s a Pretty Decent Budweiser Commercial About Finding a Cure for Cancer
