Next week brings the release of Adam Sandler‘s latest original movie coming exclusively to Netflix. The film is called Sandy Wexler, and it takes place all the way back in 1994, starring Adam Sandler himself as a goober of a talent agent with a roster of peculiar clients who are far from making it big. But Sandy Wexler’s life changes when he stumbles upon a new face, and more importantly, a new voice.
Sandy Wexler also stars Jennifer Hudson as Courtney Clarke, an aspiring singer who the titular agents takes under his wing and somehow ends up having a fledgling career despite having a complete buffoon for representation. The Netflix original movie is really going for the music side of the movie with at least one original song being produced for the film, and an official Sandy Wexler music video introduces us to the catchy tune. Unfortunately, it’s accompanied by footage from the movie too. Read More »
Netflix loves being in business with Adam Sandler.
A few years ago, the streaming service struck a deal with the Saturday Night Live veteran turned comedy superstar that included the exclusive rights to four Adam Sandler vehicles. Even though there’s still one movie left in the Adam Sandler Netflix deal, the streaming service wanted to make sure they locked him down for even more. So they’re making even more. Read More »
Continuing his feature film deal with Netflix, this spring brings another comedy from Adam Sandler, and this time he’s taking us all the way back to 1994.
Sandy Wexler follows Adam Sandler as a goober of a talent agent, complete with one of those silly voices that he loves to have in his movies. While Sandy has a unique array of talents that he represents, his newest client Courtney Clarke (Jennifer Hudson) may not only prove to be his most successful, but he also happens to fall in love with her. If that doesn’t sound appealing, just tune in for a bunch of cameos from Sandler’s famous friends.

Thanks to his deal at Netflix, we’re getting another Adam Sandler movie this year. Hot on the heels of The Ridiculous 6 and The Do-Over, this time Adam Sander is putting on a goofy voice for his latest character, and he’s also taking us all the way back in 1994.
Sandy Wexler finds Adam Sandler playing the titular man, a talent manager who works in Los Angeles, but doesn’t really seem to fit in with the glitz and glamour the Hollywood scene. You’ll see what I mean in the Sandy Wexler teaser trailer after the jump. Read More »
It’s hard to tell if Adam Sandler‘s four-picture deal with Netflix represents him being ahead of the curve in a major way or it it represents some sort of decline. Right now, making movies directly for a streaming service can’t help but feel like a descent into direct-to-video territory (although the independent productions Netflix routinely acquires don’t carry that possibly imaginary stigma), but who knows how future generations will feel on the matter. I won’t be watching The Ridiculous 6 or The Do-Over anytime soon, but they certainly represent a chapter in a future book chronicling the rise of streaming movies.
And now the Great Adam Sandler Netflix Experiment is set to continue with a film titled Sandy Wexler and Academy Award winner Jennifer Hudson is being dragged along for this one.
