Trivia

On April 23, 2015, Indian Country Today Media Network reported that the film's Native American cultural advisor, and 12 Native American actors and actresses, left the set in protest of its portrayal of Apache culture. The New York Daily News later reported that four out of over 100 Native American actors and actresses left 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, "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, a Native American actor in the film, said that previous news reports were exaggerated, and indeed there were only "four actors who left, but there were one hundred fifty extras, including grandmas and grandpas and children, who kept working." Apparently, before the film's wrap party, Adam Sandler approached Lee and several other actors to speak about the controversy. According to Lee, those who left raised legitimate issues, but it was "the wrong battlefield". See more »

Goofs

General Custer and Mark Twain talk about the Sequel to Tom Sawyer, "Huckleberry 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.)

Clem: Oh, well, that's a convincing outfit. Yeah, you can't be too safe out there... with all of them savages runnin' around. So, what can I do you for?
Tommy aka White Knife: Need some flour. Five sacks. And a carrot with peanut butter on it. Now, what's that gonna run me?

A whole lotta 'meh'
12 December 2015 | by Meatball_McGeeSee all my reviews

There's two kinds of Netflix programming: the stuff you watch regularly and intently, like Netflix's ongoing series, and then the stuff you just sort of have playing in the background as you do other stuff. The Ridiculous Six falls into the second category.

Some Sandler movies are just flat out awful. But Ridiculous Six manages to be mildly amusing at times. It's impossible to buy Sandler as a bad-ass Indian tracker, but that's probably the point. You've probably never seen Taylor Lautner or Jorge Garcia like this before--but whereas Garcia is pretty funny as a mumbling moon-shine- making hillbilly, Lautner as a simpleton just gets grating after awhile. Also, somewhat surprisingly, the funniest guy out of the six is Rob Schneider, whose Mexican character manages to steal every scene he's in. Terry Crews and Luke Wilson are just there and don't really add much to the proceedings.

The best parts of the movies are Will Forte's bumbling band of one-eyed bandits and the cameos--seriously, some of these cameos are just flat out awesome. Particularly a couple cameos that occur during a poker scene.

Chances are good if you're a Sandler/Happy Madison fan, you'll enjoy this.
