Sandler plays Max, a smooth-talking guy who runs into an old friend named Charlie David Spade at a reunion. Reuniting with Max turns him into a goofy teenager again, having fun and avoiding his depressing reality.
Sandler then shoots the women with a flare gun. I was having the best time of my adult life. Like that scene, almost every moment has multiple punchlines. Charlie and Max decide they have to get tattoos and piercings to match the dead guys. Then we get a wide-eyed shot of it going in. Then we get the swollen tongue the next day. Then we get a scene of him eating a popsicle, unable to talk. Imagine a stand-up comedian who just piles on to one lame joke after another, repeating the punchline with a few words changed. It feels desperate, almost as if the deal that Sandler worked out with Netflix required that he be paid by the minute.

How else to explain the fact that this film is minutes long? And it feels twice as long as that. Hahn has the comic timing to make nearly anything work, even this disaster. I wish I could have followed her into a better movie. Although her arrival is right around when most people will realize how sexist this whole thing is. Mixed or average reviews based on Ratings.

Club - Jesse Hassenger May 27, The Do-Over is a de facto R-rated movie for Sandler, with the attendant bad language and sex jokes, but most of the faux-naughty stuff seems like an afterthought. The Guardian - Jordan Hoffman Jun 1, Consequence of Sound - Collin Brennan May 27, The Playlist - Will Ashton Jun 1, IndieWire - David Ehrlich May 27, The Do-Over is atrocious, but it's atrocious in different ways than any of Adam Sandler's previous comedies.

BryanVet Jun 5, It goes without saying that Adam Sandler is guilty of putting out some low quality movies in the recent years, but this is not one of them. It is becoming painfully obvious that hating Adam Sandler is a trend that needs to stop. I feel that the majority of these negative reviewers went into It goes without saying that Adam Sandler is guilty of putting out some low quality movies in the recent years, but this is not one of them.
I feel that the majority of these negative reviewers went into watching the movie wanting it to be terrible and it just wasn't. This movie does not deserve the low rating people are giving it, and it's detracting people from seeing a good movie. Reviewers also need to stop cutting comedies into a million pieces like they're meant to be some elaborate piece of art. It's a comedy!!
Onto the movie: A friend and I decided to watch a movie out of boredom and chose The Do-Over on Netflix, mainly because it was the first option and not because we're Adam Sandler fans. Within a few minutes of the movie starting, we were glad to have put it on. The movie was refreshing and outside of Adam Sandler's norm. We found it well written, the story line was interesting, and it made us laugh many times. For the movie type it was, it did what it was supposed to and we found it very entertaining. It is difficult for me to sit through an entire movie, but not with this one.
In fact, I showed it to my fiance later that day who loved the movie as well and sat through it again no problem. The first thing my friend did after the movie ended was call his wife and told her to watch it, and she also thought it was great. This Adam Sandler hate needs to stop fueling bad reviews. This is a good movie and if you don't think so, you shouldn't be reviewing movies.
Panda81 Jan 6, I thought the film was funny and I liked it. Adam Sandler brings together his friends again to make us laugh. A7sus4 May 31, Adam Sandler and David Spade; of course I'm gonna check it out despite Sandler's latter day record for not-so-good movies. Having said that, this one was pretty damn funny. Ralfbergs Aug 23, I don't know why all this hate again for Adam Sandler movie - yes, he gets some one dimensional characters sometimes and all that, but here the movie itself is actually pretty funny and Sandler fits right in, plus Spade's comedy is fun and interesting and the movie's plot is quite I don't know why all this hate again for Adam Sandler movie - yes, he gets some one dimensional characters sometimes and all that, but here the movie itself is actually pretty funny and Sandler fits right in, plus Spade's comedy is fun and interesting and the movie's plot is quite interesting too.
I mean you are watching comedy not some high level thriller or drama. I think people slack this movie just because they see Sandler and some people even think all Sandler movies are bad because they have seen some like that, similar to Nicholas Cage nowadays.
