The Do-Over is another Netflix original with Adam Sander, It has remnants of classic Happy Madison Productions movies but still slightly falls into the weird group of movies Sander has made lately. But like I said some parts are executedThe Do-Over is another Netflix original with Adam Sander, It has remnants of classic Happy Madison Productions movies but still slightly falls into the weird group of movies Sander has made lately. But like I said some parts are executed extremely well/funny and others make you question what type movie you are watching. This is the main problem with this movie, It starts out being a Sander comedy and turns into a deep story that feels really odd paired with the nonsense going on. As a fan of old school Sander films I found some enjoyment and laughter in this movie but still isn't what most fans want. Expand

I normally hate Sandler, and his first Netflix outing RIDICULOUS 6 may have been a career-worst, but I didn't totally loathe watching this. Sure it's dumb, pointless and lazy, but I got a few solid chuckles out of it. Should you check it out?I normally hate Sandler, and his first Netflix outing RIDICULOUS 6 may have been a career-worst, but I didn't totally loathe watching this.

I mean, probably not, but if you get a friend and some alcohol like I did, it's an enjoyable enough watch. Expand

Esta película es el éxtasis para quien disfruta de los giros argumentales, aunque “The Do-Over” tiene tantos que en ningún momento te puedes involucrar en la trama de la película, haciendo que no se pueda disfrutar.
La protagonizan Charlie (David Spade), un gerente de banco estancado en la rutina, que se reencuentra con su amigo de la juventud, Max (Adam Sandler), quien aparece en la reunión de su promoción estudiantil y le hace ver cuán miserable es su presente.
Cuando la esposa de Charlie lo deja el fin de semana solo para escaparse en un fin de semana de placer con una amiga decide aceptar la invitación de salir Max, y su vida cobra un giro dramático cuando el bote donde estaban divirtiéndose explota con ellos dentro, siendo dados por muertos por sus conocidos.
De ahí todo va en espiral, no puedes perderte ningún dato o subestimar a los personajes secundarios que se van introduciendo porque no se puede saber quién cumplirá un rol importante (Dato que no es dado y si no es tomado en cuenta te puede obligar a retroceder la reproducción). La actuación es mala, Sandler le da algo de intensidad, pero Spade parece perdido, sobre todo cuando debe expresar emociones serias.
En cuanto al humor, es aceptable, aunque llega a cuentagotas para la duración de la película, las bromas son un tanto vulgar y puede molestar a quien sea susceptible al gore, pero si no tienes problema con ese material puede darte un par de risas.
“The Do-Over” es mejor que “The Ridiculous Six” pero aun así el nivel sigue siendo bajo para lo que uno espera de una producción con el sello de exclusividad de Netflix.

Two down-on-their-luck guys (Adam Sandler, David Spade) fake their own deaths and start over with new identities, only to find the people they're pretending to be are in even deeper trouble.
Also playing, Paula Patton, Kathryn Hahn, Nick
Two down-on-their-luck guys (Adam Sandler, David Spade) fake their own deaths and start over with new identities, only to find the people they're pretending to be are in even deeper trouble.
Also playing, Paula Patton, Kathryn Hahn, Nick Swardson, Luis Guzmán, Michael Chiklis, Torsten Voges, Stan Ellsworth and the others.
A curiously unusual comedy for Sandler, but not in a bad way like „Sandy Wexler“. It has its fair share of dirty jokes but relies even more on unexpected turns, absurdist and black humor, and… action. Oh yeah, if there ever was Sandler action movie, this is it.
Watching the man in this new mode is kind of exciting. He’s not a born action star but he’s not actually that bad either. At least it makes his character more intriguing than usual. He feels unpredictable – you can’t figure out whether he is more of a bad or good guy here.
Spade is a great sidekick as always, which is probably why most of his roles happen in Sandler’s movies these days. But he feels so bland by himself that it’s difficult to imagine him starring anywhere again.
Some of Sandler’s regulars are here – Swardson, Guzmán, Spade – but the more colorful smaller appearances belong to Stan Ellsworth as Dakota and Torsten Voges as the Gymnast.
The screenplay is weak as usual, more like a loosely tied bunch of sketches, but this is one of those times where it more or less works for the result’s favor.
It helps to give „The Do-Over“ this rare tone where you can’t predict where the story’s heading more of the time. It’s rare for Sandler’s comedy at least. If there were only less twists in the final third, they get a bit exhausing…
All in all, I enjoyed it more than many recent Sandler comedies, at least ones from this decade. Looking bad, now it’s kind of surprising that he has never tried to do action before. The result isn surprisingly watchable. Not that I would like to see him do this kind of stuff all the time.
„To-Do List“ is the second out of Sandler’s four-movie deal with Netflix, 2015’s „The Ridiculous 6“ being the first and this year's „Sandy Wexler“ being the third. Let's wait for 2018's "The Week Of" now...

This movie had it's funny moments, but it's not really worth anybodys time. Not the best Adam Sandler movie, but by far not the worst one.
