Netflix Releases Adam Sandler’s The Ridiculous 6

Adam Sandler’s latest movie was released on Netflix this weekend. The Ridiculous 6 was a fun family movie with countless actors, including my personal favorite, Steve Buscemi! The main characters were all recognizable even for me. There was Terry Crews (Herbert Love from Arrested Development,) Jorge Garcia (Hugo from Lost,) Taylor Lautner (Jacob from Twilight,) Rob Schneider (Deuce in Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo,) Luke Wilson (Joe from Idiocracy,) Will Forte (voice acting for everything ever,) Steve Zahn (Tucker in Dallas Buyers Club,) and well, I think you get the idea. I mean, even Adam Sandler’s wife made an appearance! So if nothing else, it was fun to see so many actors in one place.

The movie itself wasn’t the funniest Adam Sandler movie, but it wasn’t his worst by far. It was reminiscent of some of his early movies like Going Overboard. There were a number of genuinely funny scenes, but there were also more than a couple forced scenes or over-used gags. The storyline flowed well even with the various segments that were for exclusively for comedic effect. While I might not go out of my way to re-watch this again and again it provided me with the exact low-level-thinking kind of humor I sometimes crave.

If you have had a rough day and just want to laugh at some stupid jokes, this is the just the thing you need. Many of the reviews have been harsh, but I think this is largely exaggerated. While the Native American community out west might take issue with the depiction of the Native Americans in the movie, I see no other reason for someone to rate this movie as low as it’s been rated on sites like IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes. People might just like hating on Sandler, or perhaps they thought that it was going to be an edgier movie like Mr. Deeds. Either way, I’ve enjoyed better rated movies less. If you’ve got Netflix and some time, it’s not the worst choice you can make.

  1. I enjoy reading your blog, so I wrote a little
    comment to support you.

  2. I was surprised that Netflix moved it out of the spotlight so quickly. I realize it was timed to come out around Tarantino’s The Hateful Eight, but that movie has barely ramped up in popularity. Maybe they will promote it again once people start talking about The Hateful Eight, but I have a feeling that won’t be for years.

    I was excited about this movie, but it’s just crap. I can’t believe you enjoyed it! Not only did he offend all the native americans in the USA to make it, but it’s not even funny. Demand better from your entertainment Sarah!

  4. I love reading a post that can make men and women think.
    Also, thanks for allowing for me to comment!
