Review

I managed to watch “The Do Over,” a new Netflix original movie a few nights ago, the second of a 4-picture deal Adam Sandler has made with the streaming service network, after last year’s “Ridiculous Six.” This reunites SNL alums, David Spade as a horribly-treated-by-life old friend of Sandler’s CIA character, who decides to fake their own deaths so they can start their pathetic lives over. Hmmm…. like who HASN’T thought of doing that-??!! LOL Well, one thing leads to another, and we realize the whole thing has more to do with Sandler’s character. I dunno, I liked this movie to a degree, and even thought the *POSSIBLE SPOILER* movie’s twist near the end added a touch of extra class than you would usually find in a typical Adam Sandler comedy, I just thought this movie could have used a few more good laughs. It’s not bad per your usual theatrical Sandler comedy, and if you typically like his work, you’ll probably like this. I just hope his next couple films in the 4-picture deal are better, and I would say of the first two, “Ridiculous Six” was the more enjoyable…
