Trivia

Adam Sandler stated in an interview that he enjoyed working on this movie so much, that he would do another movie with Writer, Producer, and Director Noah Baumbach as soon as he offered it to him. He was quoted saying "If Noah has an idea, I'm in." See more »

Goofs

While Danny is on the phone with Eliza (who is at Bard College), he states, "I might go stay at Jean's in Rochester for a while. I'll be closer to you...". The distance between Rochester and Bard College is actually significantly greater than New York City to Bard. See more »

Quotes

Well written, well directed, well performed
16 April 2020 | by tomhiggins-82642See all my reviews

This film shows how Actor, Adam Sandler can play a dramatic role well (also/more so 'Uncut Gems'), Ben Stiller too, performs great through this film. This film touches upon the conflicts of many families, with siblings jealousy over 'the golden child', parents trying to be better then their own parent/s, and a fathers children trying to defend/ lie to themselves about his bad parenting behind his 'good' work that he put more effort into as they grew up. The film has a phew jokes to lighten the mood throughout the film and as any Sandler film would, and as said already, is quite realistic especially through the 'hospital scenes'. I would definitely recommend anyone to watch this film as it was well written, well directed and well performed.
