Actors: Adam Sandler, Julia Fox, Idina Menzel, Keith William Richards, Tommy Kominik, LaKeith Stanfield and Tilda Swinton
Year: 2019
Genre: Comedy, Crime, Drama and Thriller
Conclusion: 4/5
The best work I have seen Adam Sandler do since Punch-Love Drunk (2002). However, because of the storyline and plot, I have to say though that this is one of the least enjoyable Adam Sandler films that you are ever going to watch. For this role Adam Sandler wore false teeth and a fake dark mole on his right cheek. Even though Adam Sandler is fantastic I have to say that so are all the supporting actors like LaKeith Stanfield. This film is 2 hours 15 minutes which was very long. There were no characters you could get to like or feel sorry for. Although, having said that I did believe in his character. This is not an easy watch by a long run. I was surprised at just how strong the language was in this film.
