Watch Adam Sandler get kicked off a movie set in Netflix's new 'Sandy Wexler' teaser

Adam Sandler will soon deliver the third film in his four-movie deal with Netflix. The streamer has dropped a new teaser trailer for Sandy Wexler, a comedy set in 1990s Los Angeles that stars Sandler as the titular character.

The teaser gives a roughly 30-second look at Wexler, a talent manager and apparently somewhat oblivious guy. He is shown interrupting production on a film set, and then being escorted away by security after he continues to create problems for the cast and crew. Not surprisingly, the character is a little over-the-top, not picking up on the fact that the camera is rolling, even after being explicitly told as much.

Sandler isn’t the only big name involved in Sandy Wexler. The actor stars opposite Academy Award and Grammy winner Jennifer Hudson. She plays a talented singer he signs as a client after discovering her at an amusement park. When he falls in love with her, that complicates his personal and professional life.

Sandler has pulled in high-profile co-stars for each of his Netflix films so far, including Luke Wilson and David Spade. He has also been able to get his castmates to return for more than one film; Sandy Wexler stars Rob Schneider, Nick Swardson, Terry Crews, eachof whom previously appeared in at least one of Sandler’s two previous Netflix comedies, The Ridiculous 6 and The Do-Over. The movie brings back The Do-Over director Steve Brill. Sandler wrote the script with Paul Sado and Dan Bulla.

With Sandy Wexler, Sandler looks to re-create the big numbers he scored with The Ridiculous 6. Although the film’s ratings on Rotten Tomatoes haven’t been anything to brag about — a 0 percent rating from critics and a 30 percent audience score, at the time of this writing — Netflix reported in January 2016 that the flick had more streams in its first 30 days than any other film in the company’s history.

Sandy Wexler hits Netflix on April 14.

5 movies to watch if you liked Violent Night
David Harbour is Santa Claus in Violent Night.

The holiday season is upon us, and along with it are the classic slew of Christmas movies and shows that help us get in a cheery mood. We have our Santa Clauses, our sappy Hallmark romances, and all the usual suspects. But for those of us who like a little bit more edge in our Christmas entertainment, we have David Harbour's subversive Violent Night. Described by Harbour as a cross between Die Hard and Miracle on 34th Street, Violent Night is unlike anything audiences are used to when they think of Christmas movies, and that's great.

Action-packed and irreverent, Violent Night earns its hard R rating, and we love it for that. Viewers at home might love it so much that they might want to keep going, looking for other films featuring a similar hectic and disruptive vibe. Luckily for them, Hollywood has delivered more than a few films that capture chaotic cheer perfectly. From horror films that will leave you shaking in your snow boots to thrilling adventures with plenty of heart, these films would make perfect companions to Violent Night.

Where to watch Bros
Two men relax in Central Park in Bros.

Rom-coms are a dime a dozen these days. Boy meets girl, girl hates boy, boy pursues girl, girl begins to like boy ... well, you know the rest. There are very few romantic comedies that stray from this formula, which may be why the genre is in the box office doldrums at the moment.

In September 2022, however, there was a film that broke the mold. Bros wasn't your typical rom-com, and that was largely, but not solely due to the fact that it was about two ... well, bros falling in love. Billed as the first major studio LGBTQ+ romantic comedy, the film was also a subversive satire on modern dating and just how much one's identity is shaped by social mores. Plus, it's funny as hell. Now that it's out of theaters, you can catch it at home. But where is it streaming?
