Don't Watch: Adam Sandler in First Trailer for Netflix's 'The Do-Over'
"I wish I could start from scratch, just get it right this time…" Yep, this is a "don't watch" - did anyone even see The Ridiculous 6? I don't anyone who did. This is the next Netflix collaboration with Adam Sandler and it looks just as forgettable. Netflix has debuted this trailer for their new comedy The Do-Over, starring Adam Sandler and his long-time friend David Spade. The cast includes Paula Patton, Kathryn Hahn, Sean Astin, Luis Guzmán and Nick Swardson. The concept is intriguing, but that's about it - two guys try to reinvent themselves and end up getting into more trouble than they were expecting. This looks awful.
Here's the first full red band trailer for Steven Brill's The Do-Over, direct from YouTube:
The life of a bank manager is turned upside down when a friend from his past manipulates him into faking his own death and taking off on an adventure. Two down-on-their-luck guys decide to fake their own deaths and start over with new identities, only to find the people they're pretending to be are in even deeper trouble. The Do-Over is directed by Steven Brill, of Little Nicky, Mr. Deeds, Without a Paddle, Drillbit Taylor, a segment of Movie 43, and Walk of Shame previously. previously. The screenplay is written by Kevin Barnett and Chris Pappas. The film premieres on Netflix starting May 27th next month. Anyone?
That actually doesn't look too bad, which is saying a lot seeing is how bad 'The Ridiculous 6' was. I watched maybe 20 minutes of that movie before I had to shut it off. The story line actually sounds funny, and I still enjoy David Spade, but with Adam Sandler's recent history of movies he's been in (minus The Cobbler), he has been a disappointment. Here's for hoping he doesn't ruin this one too.

I mean, I hate Adam Sandler with an absolute passion. But this admittedly looks better than the last fifty pieces of shit he's put out. Don't get me wrong, I'll never see it. But still.

haha Same. I never ever thought the dude was funny. He is a poor man's Ben Stiller, IMO. Skip it and rewatch Tropic Thunder! ;:)

People actually like these movies. It's why we're doomed as a species. I'll probably watch it at some point though, if I'm stuck, late at night.

Washed up...Every 90s kid will have a soft spot in their heart for Sandler, but he is doing his best to destroy his legacy.

I know I'll be in the minority here, but I think this looks funny. I laughed through the trailer and think the plot looks funny. Sorry. I can't dick-ride the hate for hate for Adam Sandler.

I generally think modern Sandler movies are god-awful pieces of garbage, but the trailer for this movie actually wasn't nearly so bad. Don't get me wrong, I don't think it looks particularly good, either, but if the actual movie is anything like the trailer then it will be leagues better than anything Sandler's put out in recent memory, and I think even a "mildly interesting Adam Sandler" movie would be an impressive feat at this point.

This actually looks pretty decent. He's doing something different which is not playing himself in a movie. I like it.

I was fascinated by this because I've never seen Spade play a different character before.
