On April 23, 2015, Indian Country Today Media Network reported that approximately a dozen Native actors and actresses, as well as the Native cultural advisor, left the set in protest of its portrayal of the Apache culture. The New York Daily News later reported that there were only four who left, out of over 100 Native American actors on the set. Navajo Nation tribal members Loren Anthony and film student Allison Young said they left because they felt the film portrayed Native Americans in a negative light and took satire too far. They also complained that the portrayal of women was degrading. A representative of Netflix responded saying, "The movie has ridiculous in the title for a reason: because it is ridiculous. It is a broad satire of Western movies and the stereotypes they popularized, featuring a diverse cast that is not only part of-but in on-the joke." On May 4, the New York Daily News reported that Ricky Lee, one of the Native American actors in the film, said that previous news reports were exaggerated and indeed there were only "four actors who left, but there were 150 extras, including grandmas and grandpas and children, who kept working." Apparently, before the film's wrap party, he and several other actors were approached by Adam Sandler to speak about the controversy. According to the actor, those who left raised legitimate issues but it was "the wrong battlefield." See more »
General Custer and Mark Twain talk about the Sequel to Tom Sawyer, "Hucklebury Finn", but that book wasn't even written until 1885, ten years after this movie's time-line, and nine years after Custer's death. In 1875 "Tom Sawyer" hadn't even been published yet ... that wasn't until 1876. (As well as that, Samuel L. Clemens (aka Mark Twain) was only 40 years old in 1875, and still had brown hair.)

I have seen many Adam Sandler movies, but I'm afraid the humor is not what it used to be or my taste is just changing. I like many of his movies also the more realistic and dramatic roles, but with the comedies it has come down to silly and strange characters that are just acting out on camera, sometimes it seems like they get to improvise and if it is silly enough they use it in the film :)
There really are a lot of great cast members in this and they all play crazy characters, it is fun to get introduced to the one crazy son of a b.... after another, they are as stated all crazy, maybe a bit too much. It is however strange that so many talented people can join this slapstick humor comedy and it isn't just a bit more fun to watch. We are talking the good old Rob Schneider, David Spade, Steve Buscemi and John Tuturo, we expect them to be part of a Happy Madison production, then there are all the others, the extras, the "cameos" and it is a lot of people Taylor Lautner, Terry Crews, Nick Nolte, Danny Trejo, Luke Wilson, Steve Zahn, Will Forte, Jorge Garcia, Blake Shelton, Vanilla Ice and many many more. It is a crazy crew, but for me none of all these did make this a good movie.
There were a lot of childish jokes a lot of slap stick humor, some things worked, but mostly it was just not good enough, I don't know maybe I just expected too much, but it could have been just a little more fun.
