The first trailer for The Ridiculous 6, Netflix’s first Sandler “comedy,” arrived yesterday, and though it’s been embedded at the top of this article, that’s far from a recommendation on my behalf that you watch it.
You see, though this is apparently meant to be a funny movie, there are absolutely zero laughs to be found in the preview. Instead, what we’ve got is an assortment of offensive stereotypes of Native Americans; some dumb exposition about why Sandler’s character, White Knife (ugh), ends up journeying across the Old West; people falling out of buildings; and a grotesquely long list of the actors cash-strapped enough to take on supporting roles. So, if you choose to skip it, you’re not missing much.

Taylor Lautner‘s abs need not fear taking a back seat to his singing voice. The “Twilight” star proved Broadway isn’t in his future when he was invited to sing along to Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin'” with a band playing at a bar in Nashville, Tennessee. Lautner definitely gets an A for effort, but that is where the praise for his performance stops.

Professional thirst-trap Taylor Lautner was hanging out at Nashville's Tootsie's Orchid Lounge when, according to TMZ, the house band asked him to come onstage and sing with them. Oh, did he ever. They selected Journey's "Don't Stop Believin'," the '80s rock anthem and Glee standard, which, we've got to say, is a very ambitious karaoke song! But, buoyed by shots of Patrón and abdominal muscles, Taylor Lautner went for it anyway. Well, we can't all be good at everything. »

[[tmz:video id="0_ri0bmfdl"]] "Twilight" hunk Taylor Lautner still has plenty of werewolf in him, and it all spilled out when he howled his way through the Journey classic, "Don't Stop Believing." Lautner showcased his skills at the popular Nashville honky-tonk Tootsie's Orchid Lounge. The house band spotted him in the crowd and called him up onstage to "sing." We're told Lautner acted like a total rockstar -- slamming Patron shots and snapping a drumstick in half. Best of all, »

The first in a four picture deal between Adam Sandler and Netflix, you have probably heard about The Ridiculous 6 because of the fierce controversy surrounding it and the fact that a number of Native American performers walking off set due to racially sensitive material. Despite that bit of bad press, the first trailer for the comedy western about a gang of outlaw half-brothers is here, and.....it’s an Adam Sandler movie, we know what to expect by now. While it elicited nary a chuckle from me, I have to hand it to Sandler and and his go to director Frank Coraci (Click, The Waterboy, The Wedding Singer) for assembling a pretty decent cast. Sure, the Sandler regulars are there (Terry Crews, Rob Schneider, Jon Lovitz, Steve Buscemi etc.), but it also has Harvey Kietel, Steve Zahn, Danny Trejo, Nick Nolte, Luke Wilson, and John Tuturro in the mix too. »

Netflix sure knows how to pick them…maybe? With Beasts of No Nation premiering two weeks ago in theaters and on the streaming site to substantial praise, the world most likely forgot that Netflix’s next film that they produced and will distribute is anything but their first project. Well, it’s time to be reminded. The first trailer for the Adam Sandler comedy The Ridiculous 6 dropped today, and it may serve as a huge disappointment to viewers who expected Netflix’s next film to not be this most likely offensive comedy western. Here’s the synopsis:
An outlaw who was raised by Native Americans discovers that he has five half-brothers; together the men go on a mission to find their wayward, deadbeat dad.

"Who are you people?!" "We are the Stockburn Brothers!" Netflix has debuted the first trailer for the new comedy from Frank Coraci and Adam Sandler titled The Ridiculous Six. It's a western starring Adam Sandler as Tommy "White Knife" Stockburn who goes on a wild west adventure with his five brothers. The impressive comedic cast includes Steve Buscemi, Taylor Lautner, Terry Crews, Norm MacDonald, Danny Trejo, Will Forte, Nick Nolte, Rob Schneider, Luke Wilson, Steve Zahn and David Spade. If the cheesy lines don't sell you, maybe that cast will. This really does not look good at all, but maybe that's just my sense of humor, or... it's way too overdone. Not a moment of this made me laugh. It just looks ridiculous. Have fun!

Adam Sandler is bringing his crew to Netflix, and our first look at his movie leaves a lot to be desired. Sandler is starring in The Ridiculous 6, a Western comedy, alongside Taylor Lautner, Steve Buscemi, Terry Crews, Norm Macdonald, Danny Trejo, Will Forte, Rob Schneider, Luke Wilson, Steve Zahn, David Spade, Chris Parnell, John Turturro, and Whitney Cummings as the token funny woman. If the title sounds familiar, it might be because of all the hot water Sandler got in when a bunch of the Native American actors walked off the set in April after feeling disrespected. Not great. We'll see exactly how bad (or maybe good) the movie is when it premieres on Netflix on Dec. 11. »

To the chagrin of his detractors, Adam Sandler has become a true icon of contemporary American cinema, the comedian a multiplex fixture on par with Tom Cruise, bags of popcorn and infinitely larger bags of popcorn for just 50 cents more. So, even if Sandler may not be the most critically lauded superstar in Hollywood, it was still a game-changer when he announced that four of his upcoming films would be exclusively released on Netflix ("'Netflix' rhymes with 'wet chicks,'" he explained). Now, a little over a year later, the »
Adam Sandler is galloping to Netflix this December in the original comedy movie The Ridiculous 6. The first trailer and poster have arrived, and it actually looks, dare we say, funny? The popular comedian is joined by a cavalcade of stars for this bizarre Western that is certainly unlike anything you've ever seen before. Unless you've seen some of Adam Sandler's more off-the-wall movies like Little Nicky and You Don't Mess with the Zohan.
The Ridiculous 6 is the first of four Adam Sandler movies produced exclusively for Netflix. The jaw-dropping cast includes Adam Sandler's Grown Ups 2 co-star Taylor Lautner. The former Twilight heartthrob makes up one of the 6, and is joined by Terry Crews, Jorge Garcia, Rob Schneider and Luke Wilson.
Adam Sandler's comedy western movie The Ridiculous Six has an actual trailer. Because it actually exists, actually.
Whether you find it funny or not is up to you, but it definitely feels like Seth McFarlane's A Million Ways To Die In The West, which is not a good sign.
The film originally attracted criticism after some of its Native American cast complained about working on set. Sandler has since called it a "misunderstanding".
A little while ago Adam Sandler signed an exclusive, four-picture deal with Netflix, and this coming December the first of those four movies hit the streaming service. The Ridiculous 6 will debut around the globe on December 11.
The movie features an all-star cast, including Taylor Lautner, Nick Nolte, Blake Shelton, Whitney Cummings, as well as Luke Wilson, Steve Zahn, Danny Trejo, Chris Parnell and Lavell Crawford. Steve Buscemi, Rob Schneider, Dan Aykroyd, Will Forte, Nick Swardson, Terry Crews, Jon Lovitz and Vanilla Ice also appear.

The inevitably arriving trailer for Adam Sandler's controversial Netflix movie, The Ridiculous 6, has indeed arrived, and it's just about what you'd expect. Adam Sandler plays a gunslinging hero who can scale walls because he's the white son of Native Americans (which worked so well for The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt). A bunch of other actors are along for the ride, including a near-unrecognizable Taylor Lautner, who's been given fake teeth and made to look like Jed Clampett's never-before-seen inbred brother. Ruining Lautner's pretty face demands justice. »

Adam Sandler saddles up as Tommy, a.k.a. White Knife, in the first full trailer for Netflix’s “The Ridiculous 6,” which centers around a goofy gang of multicultural brothers. Taylor Lautner, Rob Schneider, Luke Wilson, Terry Crews, Steve Buscemi and Nick Nolte co-star. Nolte plays the gang’s long-lost father, while Sandler’s character is an outlaw raised by Indians. Frank Coraci (“The Wedding Singer”) is directing from a script that Tim Herlihy co-wrote with Sandler, who is producing along with Allen Covert. Happy Madison’s Heather Parry and Barry Bernardi are executive producing the film, which will »

Hotel Transylvania 2’s animated antics aside, Adam Sandler could use a win at the moment, what with Pixels underperforming and the catastrophic failure of The Cobbler to keep his more serious indie acting cred afloat. The first release from his multi-film Netflix deal, Western farce The Ridiculous 6 is part of his attempt to see if an original serving of his broad comedy stylings will work for the streaming service’s audience, and the first trailer is now online. Sandler stars as an outlaw named Tommy, Aka White Knife, an orphan raised by Native Americans who discovers that he has five half-brothers (including the likes of Luke Wilson, Terry Crews, Rob Schneider and Taylor Lautner) and decides that they’ll go on a mission to find their wayward, deadbeat dad. Oh, and they’ll keep committing robberies along the way. Naturally, this leads to the authorities (embodied in part »
Adam Sandler hasn’t been on the best box-office run of his career. Subtract his animated Hotel Transylvania films, and the comedian hasn’t cracked the $100 million domestic mark since Growns Ups 2. Misses like Pixels, Blended and That’s My Boy have led the one-time A-lister into new territories – a development deal with Netflix that will produce The Ridiculous 6, a Western comedy that just shared its first trailer, and a cast poster: To no one’s real surprise, the cast is made up of mostly Adam Sandler regulars and friends. The former Happy Gilmore sits at the top of the poster, followed by Terry Crews (Blended, The Longest Yard), Taylor Lautner (Grown Ups 2) and Rob Schneider (a repeat offender with too many Sandler collaborations to list). Here’s that poster I was telling you about: Crews and co-star Luke Wilson look like they »
