Busy weekend this weekend. I didn’t get a chance to hit the movie theater this week, but at our theater the new movie that made it out was “Gifted” and it is one that I am wanting to see, and even “The Zookeeper’s Wife” is on the list, but I didn’t have anytime to head out – I was out, but just not at the theater.
For the weekend I had to settle for Netflix and the new Adam Sandler movie “Sandy Wexler”. Now, there are those Adam Sandler movies that are hit and miss, and as of late, there has been a lot of misses. I think that I keep trying to put him back into his “Happy Gilmore” and “Billy Madison” bottle, and there are a couple of dramas that he has done that are good as well.
I recently saw an article somewhere, okay a lot of somewheres, recently Netflix released a study that said it’s users have watched 500 million hours of Adam Sandler movie. Now, Netflix has 98-100 Million paid users, which means that each person has watched 5ish hours of Sandler’s movies since December 2015 – what that really says is that every paid subscriber has watched both of his Netflix movies: “The Ridiculous 6” and “The Do-Over“; and which means we are all going to watch this one as well. We don’t want to, but it’s like driving past a car wreck; you just have to look.
I’m not going ask you if you think that you should watch this movie or not, because according to the numbers, you’re going to be bored and you’re going to watch this one also.
Sandy Wexler is a talent manager working in Los Angeles in the 1990s, diligently representing a group of eccentric clients on the fringes of show business. His single-minded devotion is put to the test when he falls in love with his newest client, Courtney Clarke, a tremendously talented singer whom he discovers at an amusement park. Over the course of a decade, the two of them play out a star-crossed love story. ~ IMDb
