Guys... apparently Adam Sandler is in something good again

Anyone going to give this a watch?

It’s on Netflix

I think he’s like Jim Carrey - he can do good things, but instead chooses terrible comedies because $$$.

(Less arm-flailing, though)

Yeahhh gonna watch this on Netflix tonight probably.

Is this going to be one of those things where he gets disproportionate acclaim for being surrounded by more talented people and just playing a toned down, vaguely weepy version of himself?

Watched this, thought it was decent but Frances Ha is still by miles the best thing Baumbach has done (yeah, I know loads of people here hate it). Saw someone who suggested this new film works as a sequel to Squid and the Whale set decades later which kind of works.

I like Funny People. That was good.

I only realised today that I’ve been getting Frances Ha and whatever that Sally Hawkins film from a few years back was this whole time (not seen either)

Happy Go Lucky (the Mike Leigh one)?

yeah that. weird.

Billy Madison is his best film
Followed by Happy Gilmore, Punch Drunk Love, and Reign Over Me.

I love Big Daddy and The Wedding Singer (although not seen the latter in years)

Funny People also very good

Think Sandler gets a rough ride tbh
