Adam Sandler, or how to divide cinephilia. Few actors have legions of admirers and detractors as marked as this New York comedian who became a Hollywood star. For some, his name is a magnet that is difficult to resist regardless of the production in which he appears. For others, letters as avoidable as those that form the word “Expired” on a milk carton.
It doesn’t matter if Sandler dances in a supermarket under the orders of Paul Thomas Anderson or if he plays the foolish son of Satan: in the theaters where both titles are released, there will be some seats occupied in advance and others, carefully free.
Netflix is aware of its drawing power and has lined up the actor in one of the platform’s latest original titles, which premiered at the end of August. The rest was part of a natural process: Sandler has issued invitations to his loyal followers and they have all come to see No way are you invited to my Bat Mitsvah.
