While the collection of the Adam Sandler Fan Club appears to be dwindling by the feature, it has not prevented the man himself from creating more movies. This time he will star in Sandy Wexler, a Netflix production that appears to be something of a spoof of his own name but at this point - will anyone truly care?
The streaming service continues to support the ventures of 50-year old Sandler, helping him create The Ridiculous 6 and The Do-Over. both of which bombed spectacularly with critics. Earning 0% and 5% respectively on Rotten Tomatoes, it is any wonder why the actor and filmmaker has shifted away from cinematic releases to the online platform, avoiding scrutiny on a much larger scale.
Brace Yourselves For Another Lazy Effort
Either Adam Sandler believes his voices are hilarious or the Happy Gilmore and Billy Madison star has just stopped caring altogether. Giving an impression that is part dumb guy from The Waterboy to something else entirely, who knows how or why Sandler comes up with such stupidity.
The brief synopsis offers a bit more insight, stopping short of providing anything to make subscribers want to click the play button:
"Sandy Wexler (Adam Sandler) is a talent manager working in Los Angeles in the 1990s who diligently represents 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 (Academy Award and Grammy winner Jennifer Hudson), a tremendously talented singer who he discovers at an amusement park."
Once more Sandler convinces an actor of high regard, an Academy Award winner no less, to join this project that includes some regulars like Kevin James, Rob Schneider and Terry Crews. Somehow Trainwreck star Colin Quinn and former talk show host and winner of Celebrity Apprentice Arsenio Hall wanted a piece of the action too.
Sandler Taking His Act On The Road
For all the derision the actor receives, particularly for his work in the past 15 years or so, there is still an appetite for people wanting to see more of Adam Sandler if his stand up tour Here Comes the Funny is any guide. Also presented by Netflix, his The Do-Over co-star and former Saturday Night Live buddy David Spade has linked up for the shenanigans that have general admission costs starting at a staggering $145 a head.
It is not just the pair that have the stage though, bringing up his friends Norm Macdonald, Rob Schneider, Tim Meadows and Nick Swardson along for the ride. Fingers crossed for the audience members that title is not ironic.
