Fulfilling his wish that it was still the 1990s in the most literal way yet, Adam Sandler’s next Netflix movie will find him once again slipping into the baggy cargo short of decades, playing a ’90s-era talent manager in the just-announced Sandy Wexler. According to a press release, the third stage of Netflix’s rapidly advancing Adam Sandler condition will find him starring alongside Jennifer Hudson, who will play the aspiring singer and assenting love interest to Sandler’s struggling title character. Director Steve Brill—the man behind Little Nicky, Mr. Deeds, and Sandler’s most recent Netflix dropping The Do-Over—completes this blessed union of contractual circumstance.
Sandler’s character reportedly “diligently represents a group of eccentric clients on the fringes of show business” (a description that could just as easily be applied to Sandler himself), though that diligence is soon tested after he discovers Hudson’s Courtney »

Sometimes I wish I could like an Adam Sandler movie, that I could have been one of the people to make The Ridiculous 6 one of the most viewed movies on Netflix because I genuinely was looking forward to it. But every movie post Mr. Deeds (with the exception of The Longest Yard, but that was probably because of every cast member bar Sandler) has seen me become numb to the efforts of the once funny man, even more so now that Happy Madison Productions just seems to be Sandler’s own personal travel agency, fuelled by product placement and tasteless jokes. I do stupidly find myself hoping Sandler can turn it around with each movie, harking back to the old days, but that spark of hope has been finally squashed with The Do-Over, the second of four Netflix exclusive movies for the actor, being everything people have grown to »

If you don't count his voice acting in films like Hotel Transylvania, by most accounts, it has been a really long time since Adam Sandler has been a part of a great movie. Over the last year, Sandler has been pushing out films exclusively for Netflix as part of a four picture deal he and the streaming service worked out some time ago. And so far, the results haven't been great, at least in terms of quality. Though Netflix seems pretty happy with the viewership. His second Netflix original, The Do-Over has just hit Netflix in time for Memorial Day weekend, and it just might actually be worth your time, if you've had a couple of drinks already.
The Do-Over is the story of two old high school friends, Charlie McMillan (David Spade) and Max Kessler (Sandler), who haven't seen one another in a very long time and wind up »
Spade is then awoken tied to a bed and discovers that Sandler has wiped the slate clean for a do-over by faking both their deaths. “I didn’t want you to freak out,” Sandler explains.
Paula Patton, who stars as Spade’s new love interest, asks him, “What was so terrible about your life that you wanted a whole new one?” He responds, “It kind of wasn’t my choice.”
The footage features plenty of gun play, car crashes and jumping off massive cliffs. Also starring are Kathryn Hahn, Luis Guzman, Michael Chiklis, Sean Astin, Catherine Bell, Natasha Leggero, Nick Swardson, Torsten Voges, Renee Taylor and Matt Wals.

Back in October 2014, comedian/actor Adam Sandler signed an unprecedented deal with Netflix, with the actor set to develop, star in and produce four movies for the streaming service. The first movie in this pact was the Western comedy The Ridiculous Six, and earlier this year, we learned that the second movie would be The Do-Over, arriving May 27. Today we have the final red band trailer for this comedy, which features plenty of R-rated language, so be sure to watch at your own risk. We also have six new photos to check out as well.
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 plays Max, re-teaming with his old Saturday Night Live pal David Spade as Charlie, two life-long friends who are about to give their mundane »
If the critical pummelling directed at The Ridiculous Six affected Netflix and Adam Sandler’s enthusiasm for original content, the pair aren’t showing it. In only a few days’ time, Sandler will be blasting onto the streaming service once again in the form of action-comedy The Do-Over, and today brings forth a decidedly Nsfw new trailer.
Acting as the second movie in the pair’s five-picture deal, The Do-Over is coming by way of director Steven Brill – an old Sandler cohort following Little Nicky and Mr. Deeds – reuniting the divisive actor with a whole host of familiar faces.
Key among those is David Spade, who will be rubbing shoulders with Adam Sandler as his newfound buddy in crime. Struggling to come to terms with the regular 9-t0-5, Sandler’s bank manager finds his life unceremoniously upended by the arrival of Spade, who convinces our lead to fake his »

Netflix has unveiled the first full look at The Do-Over, their upcoming comedy starring Adam Sandler and David Spade. The 30-second teaser hinted at the film's basic premise: A miserable family man played by Spade is given a "do-over" after faking his death and forming a new identity thanks to his childhood friend and conman, played by Sandler. The red-band trailer shows all the trouble the two men get into in their new lives, including gunfights, threesomes with Luis Guzman, boat explosions, roofies and vehicular manslaughter.
The Do-Over is the »
Back in October 2014, comedian Adam Sandler signed a groundbreaking deal with Netflix to produce and star in four new movies exclusively for the streaming service. The first movie to come out of this deal was the Western comedy The Ridiculous Six. Last month, we learned that the second movie is The Do-Over, with the streaming service releasing a brief teaser trailer. Today we have the first full trailer for this comedy, which sheds new light on the story.
In The Do-Over, Adam Sandler plays "Max" and David Spade plays "Charlie," old friends tired of their mundane lives who reunite at their 25th high school reunion for the ultimate mulligan: they decide to wipe the slate clean for a do­-over. After faking their deaths and assuming new identities, could their lives be better the second time around? The comedy is set for release on Netflix Friday, May 27, just in time »
While Adam Sandler does occasionally decide to make a respectable movie, such as the next effort from Noah Baumbach, crappy, broad comedies pay the bills. And his deal at Netflix is allowing him to do that and then some. Following last year's "The Ridiculous 6," he's back on the streaming site with "The Do-Over," and yes, it looks dreadful. Read More: Review: 'The Ridiculous 6' Starring Adam Sandler, Rob Schneider, Taylor Lautner, Nick Nolte, Will Forte, Vanilla Ice, More His pal David Spade co-stars in his latest movie, playing a bank manager stuck in a rut who reunites with his old friend, and the pair winding up going on a wacky adventure after faking their deaths. Basically, it's a premise that once again lets Sandler and his buddies get paid to go on vacation in some beautiful locales, while also making a movie.

Despite receiving an absolute drubbing from the critics (ourselves included, labeling it one of the worst movies of last year), The Ridiculous Six was one of Netflix’s most watched movies, so you gotta believe the streaming service is pretty happy with their four picture deal with Adam Sandler. And the polarising funny man sure is churning them out, with his second Netflix exclusive film, The Do-Over, has already gotten a May release date, and a teaser trailer to boot. Directed by Little Nicky and Mr. Deeds' (the two movies just on the turn of audiences getting sick of Sandler’s schtick) Steven Brill, The Do-Over follows a bank manager whose life is turned upside down when a friend from the past manipulates him into faking his own death and taking off on an adventure. I’ll admit to having an odd relationship with Sandler. He has produced some »

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.

Don't have plans for Memorial Day? That's okay, Netflix has you covered! The streaming giant has just announced Memorial Day weekend as the launching date for their second original Adam Sandler movie following The Ridiculous 6. They've also released a short trailer teasing some of the big action and even bigger laughs that will be on display in this riff on 80s TV classic Magnum P.I.
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 in The Do Over! Netflix surprised everyone when they dropped this first look footage out of the blue, proving that they have one hot summer lined up. The Do Over will hit the worldwide streaming giant on Friday, May 27.
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.

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.
