A couple years back, Adam Sandler’s production company, Happy Madison, formed a deal with Netflix. The deal was that Happy Madison would produce four original films for the streaming company. While Adam Sandler’s films haven’t exactly been a beacon of quality in the recent decade, they’ve managed to find their niche audience and capitalize on them. Sure, the films aren’t amazing, but there’s a large subset of folks that do like them.
As such, the deal with Netflix seemed like a great one for both parties. Netflix would practically have a guaranteed return on investment, and Happy Madison would be able to continue making the movies they love, except for a potentially larger audience. The first film to come out of the deal was the much-maligned RIDICULOUS 6, which currently holds a 0% on Rotten Tomatoes. In addition to the poor reception, the film was also known for its controversial portrayal and treatment of Native Americans.
This next venture seems to be a completely different ball of wax. Rather than go for the standard PG-13 films they've been making in recent years, Happy Madison’s next production, THE DO-OVER, goes for a hard-R.
The film reunites Sandler with fellow SNL alum, David Spade, in what looks to be quite the raunchy comedy.
Check out the red band trailer for the film below!
“In THE DO-OVER, Adam Sandler plays ‘Max’ and David Spade plays ‘Charlie,’ old friends tired of their mundane lives who reunite at their 25th high school reunion for the ultimate mulligan: they decide to wipe the slate clean for a do-over. After faking their deaths and assuming new identities, could their lives be better the second time around?”
