Oh snap, dawg! Adam Sandler just dropped his latest shiznit on us, homie, and it is Da Bomb, if you happen to be a fan of '90s comedy. That's right, shooter, Mr. Happy Gilmore is back on Netflix for the latest, tight feature with the streaming giant. This one's called Sandy Wexler, and it basically has Sandler taking over a new decade, similar to what he did with the 1980s and The Wedding Singer. Get ready to wig out over the first trailer for Sandy Wexler. Check it!
So dope! Except, it's not really. Let's put the '90s catchphrases on pause for a moment, my fly guys, and try to figure out what Sandy Wexler is. So far, Adam Sandler has made two original comedies as part of his multi-picture deal with Netflix, and neither film -- The Ridiculous 6 or The Do-Over -- set the world on fire. Sandy Wexler looks to hang its hat on a series of generational jokes and obvious '90s punchlines, and yadda yadda yadda, you find yourself disappointed 90s minutes later because you streamed an unfunny mess. And yet, how does Adam Sandler feel? He's no doubt screaming "Cha-ching!" because Netflix already ponied up its dough for the rights to these movies.
IMDB has a plot summary. They say the movie will be about the following:
Sandy Wexler (Adam Sandler) is a talent manager working in Los Angeles in the 1990s, diligently representing a group of eccentric clients on the fringes of show business. His single minded devotion is put to the test when he falls in love with his newest client, Courtney Clarke, a tremendously talented singer who he discovers at an amusement park. Over the course of a decade, the two of them play out a star-crossed love story.
Oh, so Sandy Wexler and Courtney Clarke are going to be gettin' jiggy wit it? Damn skippy! That's all that AND a bag of chips. We see Courtney ever so briefly in the trailer. She'll be played by Jennifer Hudson, of American Idol fame, and Dreamgirls. So she'll likely get a musical number or two. The rest of the cast will round out with Adam Sandler regulars, from Kevin James and Terry Crews to Rob Schneider and Nick Swardson. Arsenio Hall also is in it. And Al B. Sure, playing Al B. Sure.
You won't stream Sandy Wexler, starting on April 14, just to see what Al B. is up to? Talk to the hand!
