After goofball outings The Ridiculous 6, The Do-Over, and Sandy Wexler, Adam Sandler returns to Netflix this fall in... a movie that looks nothing like The Ridiculous 6, The Do-Over, or Sandy Wexler. From The Squid and the Whale director, Noah Baumbach, The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected), looks like it's going to be emotional as hell. In other words, the Netflix users who've watched more than 500 million hours of Sandler's antics are about to see the other side of the star.
Think: Punch-Drunk Love, Funny People.
Meyerowitz tells the "comic intergenerational tale of adult siblings (Sandler, Ben Stiller, and Elizabeth Marvel) contending with the long shadow their strong-willed father (Dustin Hoffman) has cast over their lives." Emma Thompson, Adam Driver, Candice Bergen, Judd Hirsch, and Rebecca Miller also appear. The dramedy debuted at Cannes earlier this year to favorable reviews, with many critics pointing out some variation of, Yeah, wait, you guys, look, this is a Sandler role you might not wanna miss.
