Hot Take 4/12

Hello Matt and Adam,

I don’t like Will Farrell movies. In general, they just aren’t funny to me. There are some exceptions like Elf and Old School. I even somewhat enjoyed Eurovision last year.

But when most people I know are quoting their favorite lines from Talladega Nights, Step Brothers, The Other Guys, and Anchorman, I just have nothing to add. They’re just too silly and nonsensical to be funny.

What’s even stranger is that I like many Adam Sandler movies. I know, IT’S MADNESS!!

I’m definitely in the minority, but I can’t fake my way through it anymore!

Thanks for the great content!
Tony

Justice for Sandler

My hot take is that Adam Sandler comedies are good, actually. Too many comedies (if they get made these days) don’t have enough jokes. You can always count on a Sandler movie to have a high joke-per-minute rate. The jokes can induce groans, eyerolls, or cringes, but they are there, and when they land they land big (see John Tuturro in Ridiculous Six calling baseball “Stickie McSchnickens”). I love that he always has a good time with his friends, and it’s nice that he brings in his family members too. And I appreciate that Sandler has never once spoken out about PC, woke, or cancel culture! There’s plenty of offensive stuff in his past movies, but he seems to learn and evolve without complaint or patting himself on the back. With a few exceptions that are more boring than bad (e.g. Grown Ups, Pixels), Sandler’s comedies are a really fun time, especially after some alcohol or other substances. I say if you can’t handle Sandler at his Jack and Jill, you don’t deserve him at his Uncut Gems.

Thank you for the show and the work that goes into it! Hope you do a Sandler retrospective someday.

Great show, deep dive discussions

Great show! I love the deep dives into specific films or a specific director’s filmography, as well as the coverage of the movie industry as a whole.

Hot take:
All streaming services should follow the HBO Max model where new films are only being streamed for a limited amount of time before leaving the service. This helps to create a sense of urgency to see these films similar to a theatrical release window. Otherwise the movies always end up on the “I’ll watch it...but not today” list.
