Netflix Subscribers Have Watched Over 2 Billion Hours Of Adam Sandler Movies

Proving that taste is somewhat relative, Netflix subscribers have reportedly consumed over 2 billion hours of Adam Sandler material since the 2015 release of his movie The Ridiculous 6 on the streaming platform. Sandler, who has a deal with Netflix for original content, has produced the likes of The Do-Over, Sandy Wexler, The Week Of, Murder Mystery, and 100% Fresh since 2014, and has four new movies in development. What, then, can account for the un-satiable interest in Sandler’s output among Netflix subscribers?

Although the Happy Madison pics for Netflix have been routinely slammed by critics, they’ve been delivering significant audiences to the streaming site, and also featured in the most popular overall content on the platform last year with Murder Mystery. In terms of Sandler’s popularity, we were surprised (and even a little dismayed) by Netflix extending his deal in 2017, but the millions of people turning up for his comedies may actually be onto something.

Netflix Users Have Spent 2 Billion Hours Watching Adam Sandler Since Ridiculous 6 Released

  • MovieWeb
Netflix users can't seem to get enough of Adam Sandler. The streaming service claims that over 2 billion hours were spent watching Sandler's material on the platform. All of the Sandler watching was apparently done after Ridiculous 6 was released. Netflix and the actor/comedian have had a deal in place since 2014, which has now been extended twice. Adam Sandler and Netflix extended their deal heading into the weekend for a second time, promising us four more new Sandler movies.

Despite every movie from Happy Madison Productions ending up on the Rotten list, Netflix will continue to do business with Adam Sandler. Critics don't seem to appreciate Sandler's streaming projects, but his fans sure do, otherwise Netflix would not have decided to extend their contract together. Regardless, Sandler seems happy to stick around with the streaming platform to bring new projects together for his fans, which have collectively streamed over 2 billion hours.

Adam Sandler Extends Netflix Deal for 4 More Movies
Adam Sandler and Netflix have extended their relationship to include four more new movies. After the success of his performance in Uncut Gems, Sandler was a serious contender for his first Academy Award nomination. Critical and viewer praise fueled whispers of a possible Best Actor nomination and when asked about all of the hype, the actor joked that if the Academy didn't recognize him, he'd go out and make a bad movie on purpose. Long story short, he did not get the nomination. Will he exact his revenge against the Academy with Netflix?

There have not been any announcements as to what these four projects for Netflix will be, other than the fact that they are Adam Sandler movies. The two started their relationship back in 2014, which was then extended to 2017. Movies like The Ridiculous 6, The Do-Over, Sandy Wexler, The Week Of, Murder Mystery, and 100% Fresh were all done

Murder Mystery 2 Happening at Netflix with Sandler & Aniston Expected to Return

Murder Mystery 2 Happening at Netflix with Sandler & Aniston Expected to Return
Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston look to be reuniting for another round of mysterious shenanigans involving murder, as Netflix is in development on Murder Mystery 2. While Sandler and Aniston aren't confirmed for the follow-up just yet, it's unlikely the streaming service would move forward on the project without the stars that helped make the first movie a success. In any event, Sandler's presence on Netflix isn't going anywhere.

According to a new report, James Vanderbilt, who penned this year's Murder Mystery, is in negotiations to return and pen the sequel. Story details remain under wraps at this time. Some of Vanderbilt's other credits include Darkness Falls, Zodiac, White House Down, The Meg and The Amazing Spider-Man 2. So it's an admittedly mixed bag. The report also points out that he's one of the higher paid writers in Hollywood right now. It's also worth pointing out that he served as a producer

‘Murder Mystery’ Review: Adam Sandler’s Latest Netflix Debacle Is His Laziest Movie to Date

‘Murder Mystery’ Review: Adam Sandler’s Latest Netflix Debacle Is His Laziest Movie to Date
It was just starting to look like Adam Sandler got his groove back. His performance in Noah Baumbach’s “The Meyerowitz Stories” was among the best of his career, his PTA-approved comedy special “Adam Sandler 100% Fresh” was a rapid-fire reminder of what people loved about him in the first place, and — judging by paparazzi shots from the set — his performance as a Diamond district jeweler in the Safdie brothers’ forthcoming “Uncut Gems” could redefine screen acting as we know it. Sandler’s talent and creative potential have never been in doubt, but at long last it finally seemed like he was putting them to use on a more regular basis.

And maybe he is. Maybe the terrible Netflix movies Sandler churns out to satisfy the streaming platform’s deal with his Happy Madison production company are all part of a long (and ultra-lucrative) con to make people drop to their

Jennifer Aniston Supports Georgia Boycott Over Anti-Abortion Law

Jennifer Aniston Supports Georgia Boycott Over Anti-Abortion Law
Jennifer Aniston and several of her co-stars on Netflix’s “Murder Mystery” supported the streamer’s stance on pulling production out of Georgia if the state’s anti-abortion bill passes.

“I think it’s fantastic. Good for them. They have the voices, they have the power, and that’s the way you have change happen,” Aniston told Variety at the film premiere at the Regency Village Theater on Monday night.

Netflix was one of the first companies to threaten boycotting film production in Georgia if the controversial legislation passes. On May 7, Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp signed a bill aiming to outlaw abortion after a fetal heartbeat is detected, causing severe backlash in Hollywood. Many TV shows and movies shoot in the state due to high tax incentives, but several companies have vowed to pull their projects in support of women’s reproductive rights.

Michael Wolff’s ‘Siege’ Is Like His Last Book — But Worse

Michael Wolff might be the most unreliable historian America has ever encountered, but at least he admits it. This is from the author’s note to Siege, the less-explosive sequel to his smash-hit “inside” account of the Trump presidency, Fire and Fury:

Dealing with sources in the Trump White House has continued to offer its own set of unique issues. A basic requirement of working there is, surely, the willingness to… delegitimize the truth… this has caused some of the same people who’ve undermined the public trust to become private truth-tellers…

Murder Mystery Trailer Reunites Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston on Netflix

Netflix has released the first trailer for Murder Mystery. This is the latest collaboration between the streaming service and former Saturday Night Live cast member Adam Sandler. This time around, he's reuniting with his Just Go With It co-star Jennifer Aniston, along with a pretty impressive ensemble for, as the title implies, a classic whodunit tale set in the modern era. But, you know, set against the backdrop of a typical Sandler movie, for better or for worse.

Things start off with some gags involving low-hanging fruit, as one might expect, with Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston doing their best not to get into an argument on a flight. Then Aniston's character comes across a rather dashing, mysterious gentleman in first class. This leads them to a much more, interesting, high-class adventure than they had previously planned. Until things go wrong because, as the title makes explicitly clear, someone gets murdered.
