Sandy Wexler is the forty year old virgin without the jokes
14 April 2017 | by machieavelliSee all my reviews

The movie raises the thought how can someone so uncoordinated have such a successful career. Adam Sandler portrays a talent agent/scout in the 1990's His awkward stance and opinions land him to find and meet Courtney "Jennifer Hudson' while babysitting the kids from another client played By the real life Sandler's Adams Family...There Sandy see's that Courtney has a amazing singing voice and he lays down the spiel which comes as a bit of a reel off and makes Courtney a bit skeptical..She soon realizes that is part of Sandy's charisma and character and begins to take him seriously.

Sandy Wexler 2017 Is part of Happy Madison Production & Netflix deal with Adam..This movie completes the three movie deal and opens the door for four more movies that Adam is going to make for Netflix. The movie in general is quite humorless at times and a bit depressing. Sandy is a lonely person who truly doesn't have anyone by hes side. All he has is his work and hes dedication to it.. The man will clearly do anything for hes clients but hes comes off as impolitic to the rich & famous. He is mocked, ridiculed, prodded by the industry and even ostracized from a members only golf club...

It is not a bad movie per-sea being Adams Sandler's first movie I ever saw that ran more than '90 MINUTES' in duration. However with so many comedians making cameos there where plenty of moments the movie could have given us a couple laughs, unfortunately this doesn't happen.. I saw it as poorly wasted opportunity to not have Lorne Micheal's Or Jimmy Kimmel, Or Conan O'Brien, Or Chris Rock, Or David Spade, Or Allen Covert to make the audience laugh.. Over all it was a bit of a left handed monkey wrench in writing department..

I say if your a Adam Sandler fan like me Its worth nuking some popcorn and watching it, If your expecting this movie to be Adam's comedic comeback...THINK AGAIN!!!
