The most remarkable thing you can probably say about Adam Sandler‘s “Sandy Wexler,” his third film for Netflix, is that it’s not an excuse to take a vacation to an exotic location. In fact, it looks like it was made on the cheap on studio backlots, so perhaps the streaming service is teaching the comedian to tighten his belt a bit. But at any rate, the results look just as dispiriting as you’d expect.
This time around Sandler brings in Jennifer Hudson, Kevin James, Terry Crews, Lamorne Morris, Nick Swardson, Rob Schneider, Jane Seymour, Aaron Neville, and Arsenio Hall for this ’90s-set tale about a devoted talent manager. Here’s the official synopsis:
Sandy Wexler is a talent manager working in Los Angeles in the 1990s who diligently represents a group of eccentric clients on the fringes of show business. His single-minded devotion is put to the test when he falls in love with his newest client, Courtney Clarke, a tremendously talented singer who he discovers at an amusement park.
“Sandy Wexler” arrives on April 14th.
