Fan of Adam Sandler, but not this movie.
21 April 2017 | by (NY, USA) – See all my reviews

I have been a big fan of Adam Sandler since his days in SNL. I live in NYC and had the pleasure of meeting him one time at a party and will say my short experience with him was pleasant and quite normal. Normal in the sense of his fame and notoriety. Meaning, he seemed like "the every day guy" who has not let Fame and fortune go to his head.

IMO, a large percentage of his films are very funny and he clearly possesses a broad range of talent. Obviously he is a comedian by trade, but can act in serious dramatic roles too that can really move you. Ie: Reign over me. I would like to see him in more serious roles as I believe his talent, again, is broad reaching.

His Forte and Bread and Butter is Comedy and I always liked his usage of reappearing actors and many cameos he utilizes in many of his films. And Sandy Wexler is a prime example of that again.

That said, "Sandy Wexler" is way below par for the typical Sandler film. 20 minutes into it I felt like it was a rip-off of Woody Allens gem "Broadway Danny Rose". The movie was Wayyyyy too long at 131 minutes and, although it had its moments, I was very disappointed in the plot and his performance. It seems much of his screen persona revolves around self depreciation which can be very funny and endearing but the formula simply does not work here.

Sandler's films always seem to follow a very similar plot line where he is a lovable loser who manages to always wind up on his feet and transforms himself into the unlikely Hero of the story by the films end. This one is no different and I think A.S. Needs to break away, perhaps at his own peril, a different style of delivering his undoubtedly natural comedic ability.

If you are an avid A.S. Fan you will go see any film he is in. This film is not terrible nor is it close to one of the top ten films of his career. I am not divulging any facts about the film intentionally, as I feel , when someone loves a particular actor/actress' work they will watch any movie that person is in. Especially when they have the lead role in a given film.

To those A.S. Fans, I would not say "stear clear at all costs" .....but, do not go into the film expecting something different or even unique about "Sandy Wexler" if you like the plot, as I mentioned earlier, rent (or On-Demand") Woody Allens "Broadwat Danny Rose" and you will get my meaning.

Sorry Fans, after a film like "that's my Boy", for example, this was a too long poor effort, minimum laughs film. Definitely not the Sandler I enjoy very much and expect from a comedian with his talent.
