Don't Watch: Adam Sandler in First Trailer for Netflix's 'The Do-Over'

20 April 2016 2:21 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"I wish I could start from scratch, just get it right this time..." Yep, this is a "don't watch" - did anyone even see The Ridiculous 6? I don't anyone who did. This is the next Netflix collaboration with Adam Sandler and it looks just as forgettable. Netflix has debuted this trailer for their new comedy The Do-Over, starring Adam Sandler and his long-time friend David Spade. The cast includes Paula Patton, Kathryn Hahn, Sean Astin, Luis Guzmán and Nick Swardson. The concept is intriguing, but that's about it - two guys try to reinvent themselves and end up getting into more trouble than they were expecting. This looks awful. Here's the first official trailer for Steven Brill's The Do-Over, direct from Netflix's YouTube: The life of a bank manager is turned upside down when a friend from his past manipulates him into faking his own death and taking off on an adventure. »

Adam Sandler, David Spade Netflix Comedy ‘The Do-Over’ Gets Release Date, First Teaser

21 March 2016 5:03 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Netflix is promising plenty of low-brow gags in the teaser trailer for “The Do-Over,” courtesy of Adam Sandler and David Spade.

The footage features plenty of gun play, car crashes, jumping off massive cliffs, young women in skimpy bikinis on the beach and repartee between the stars as Sandler and Spade decide to fake their own deaths.

“You sure about this, tough guy?” Sandler asks. “F— yeah,” a typically laid-back Spade replies.

The streaming service is releasing “The Do-Over” on May 27. Sandler and Spade starred in Netflix’s Western spoof “The Ridiculous 6” with Spade portraying General George Custer.

“Netflix got Ridiculous,” the trailer notes. “Now this Memorial Day, the madness continues.”

Besides “The Ridiculous Six,” Sandler and Spade also teamed on “Saturday Night Live” between 1992 and 1995 and on the “Grown-Ups” movies.

“The Do-Over” is directed by Steven Brill, who also helmed “Little Nicky” and “Mr. Deeds.” The ensemble cast also includes Paula Patton, »

Adam Sandler’s Latest Netflix Movie The Do-Over Releases Bizarre First Trailer

21 March 2016 1:27 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Keeping the proverbial foot pressed firmly on the pedal, Netflix has unveiled the latest Adam Sandler-fronted actioner on its way to the streaming service, a mere three months after the much-derided Ridiculous 6.

Entitled The Do-Over, Sandler’s latest creative effort has been pegged for launch on May 27. Starring opposite David Spade is Sandler’s bumbling bank manager, who finds his life “turned upside down when a friend from his past manipulates him into faking his own death and taking off on an adventure.”

Sporting new identities with a fresh outlook on life to boot, what follows is a sleazy sizzle reel of low-key action shootouts and scantily-clad women. It’s by no means a trailer to win over the Sandler naysayers, particularly when you factor in the critical panning directed at Ridiculous 6, but we’ll reserve final judgement until we lay eyes on a full-length trailer.

First teaser for Adam Sandler’s new Netflix film The Do-Over

21 March 2016 12:39 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The first teaser trailer has arrived for Adam Sandler’s second Netflix film The Do-Over, which we have for you below…

The new film, the second of Sandler’s four-picture deal with the subscription service giant, follows last year’s The Ridiculous 6, which co-starred Rob Schneider and Taylor Lautner. That film was reportedly the most-watched on the service through its first month of release, so odds are the latest effort may fare just as well.

Directed by Steven Brill (Mr. Deeds, Little Nicky) and co-starring David Spade (Grown Ups), Paula Patton (Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol), Luis Guzman (Narcos) and Ridiculous 6 co-star Nick Swardson, the new film “follows a bank manager whose life is turned upside down when a friend from his past manipulates him into faking his own death and taking off on an adventure.”

The Do-Over is set for release on Memorial Day, May 27th.

[Review] Hell and Back

6 January 2016 7:23 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

You may have noticed posters for the R-rated, stop-motion animated comedy Hell and Back throughout the summer and fall seasons in anticipation of its October release only to find it didn’t come to a theater near you. It was released and took in about $150,000 on the few screens it graced to the chagrin of a ton of hopeful Nick Swardson fans complaining on the movie’s Facebook page about their inability to watch. So this week brings with it a belated VOD Christmas gift for many. To all those who believe themselves one of these brave souls chomping at the bit, please look deep inside yourself and really ask whether Swardson is your God because his being merely a passing chuckle won’t be enough to save you.
