In January it was revealed that Adam Sandler’s production company Happy Madison Productions, had its deal with Netflix extended four more years. This was after Sandler’s “Murder Mystery” was one of the most popular titles on the platform last year.
So what gem did we get after signing this mega-deal with Netflix?
Hubie Halloween. No, my friends, I can’t make this stuff up. In the movie, Adam Sandler plays the role of Hubie, which is really just a re-hash of his Waterboy character. Basically, the whole movie is like a Halloween themed version of the movie Waterboy.
It’s October 31st in Salem, Massachusetts, and a town’s eccentric, devoted community volunteer and the good-natured object of his fellow citizen’s derision and meanest pranks, finds himself in the midst of a real investigation, for a real murderer. Hubie’s not the most popular guy in Salem, Mass., but when Halloween turns truly spooky, this good-hearted scaredy-cat sets out to keep his town safe.
If you were a fan of the movie Waterboy this might be worth a watch, otherwise, I’m going to have to say this is a Halloween movie that I’ll say pass on.
There was a great cast with a few funny moments, but it wasn’t really that great of a movie.
