So Adam Sandler’s going to forego the whole movie release thing for a while, and do his releases of his next four movies through Netflix.
This shouldn’t worry you at all if you don’t have Netflix, because, while Billy Madison, Happy Gilmore, Waterboy, Wedding Singer, Little Nicky and Mr Deeds were terrific and re-watchers, the last of those came out in 2002, and everything he’s done since has been ratshit. Not his fault – I’d play a disabled Stalin in a tutu for $20 million a pic.
But the reason he gave was pretty good:
“When these fine people came to me with an offer to make four movies for them, I immediately said yes for one reason and one reason only….Netflix rhymes with Wet Chicks,” Sandler said in a statement.
That and 9 figures – excellent decision.
