I like it. Can we just all build a giant stadium and dress and act like its '94?

At least then we'd be big winners haha.

I can't say with 100% certainty that it sucks, but it's an Adam Sandler movie.  His other two Netflix Original movies were awful.  I'm sure this one isn't much different.  Really, Sandler stopped making worthwhile movies 15-20 years ago.

It's way too long for a comedy




It's what it is. A Adam Sandler movie in Netflix. Set expectations low and it is not a bad time killer

Legitimately, how the hell has Adam Sandler made so many movies? Does he finance everything? They're pretty terrible.

Sandler movies are cheap to make and he has a market of fans that watch everything he turns out without regard for critical or popular reception. His movies are still a pretty safe investment by industry standard.

and they are in 4k! Man, when I first got my 4k a few years ago I'd watch any 4k material; even like crawling bugs and what-not. I can't watch Sandler 4k movies. I did watch that last terrible one before sanndy wexler. But you right, KK. Check this out. Half a BILLION hours....

I'm not a Sandler fan but some of them are ok.  I did not like Big Daddy.  My favorite is probably the Wedding Singer or Funny People which was a more serious movie.  Most of his movies are made for 12 year old boys but some of them are decent. Can't argue with his success I guess.  I remember when he was a sidekick on the MTV game show "Remote Control" in the mid 80's.  Never thought he would be a big star.

Lol, "they got it down to a ready to watch on an airplane science"

That describes his movies pretty well; billy madison/happy Gilmore were the pinnacle. So he really started out at his peak.
