Hubie Halloween

Netflix Releases Trailer for Sandler Comedy “Hubie Halloween”

Over the last several years, Adam Sandler and Netflix have had a great relationship. So great that they recently extended their partnership to include an additional four films. Though critics like to harp on the comedian for his childish antics, the truth is that Sandler isn't making films for them. He never has. His immature humor and over-the-top delivery connect him to his fans, who are undoubtedly watching.

Hubie Halloween is the newest Sandler film to hit the streaming giant, and the new trailer highlights the laughs and expected potty humor we've come to expect from the Murder Mystery star.

The film celebrates one of Salem's biggest Halloween fans in Hubie Dubois (Adam Sandler). Hubie works thanklessly every Halloween, ensuring that his hometown residents celebrate safely and abide by the rules. Most years, things are uneventful, but this year feels different. An escaped criminal and a mysterious new neighbor have Hubie on high alert. When people start disappearing, he must convince his town that something is amiss.

In typical Sander fashion, the film's first trailer is full of juvenile banter and gags that remind us of the actor's Billy Madison/Happy Gilmore days. Though this film won't match up to either of those classics, it's worth noting that the actor's comedy hasn't changed much over the last several decades. Sandler's past successes are what bring eyes to his films.  Hubie Halloween's all-star cast should help in getting everyone else's attention.

Directed by Steve Brill, Hubie Halloween co-stars Kevin James, Julie Bowen, Ray Liotta, Rob Schneider, June Squibb, Kenan Thompson, Shaquille O'Neal, Michael Chiklis, Tim Meadows, Steve Buscemi, and Maya Rudolph. It streams globally on October 7.

About Stephen Davis

Stephen Davis
I owe this hobby/career to the one and only Stephanie Peterman who, while interning at Fox, told me that I had too many opinions and irrelevant information to keep it all bottled up inside. I survived my first rated R film, Alive, at the ripe age of 8, it took me months to grasp the fact that Julia Roberts actually died at the end of Steel Magnolias, and I might be the only person alive who actually enjoyed Sorority Row…for its comedic value of course. While my friends can drink you under the table, I can outwatch you when it comes iconic, yet horrid 80s films like Adventures in Babysitting and Troop Beverly Hills. I have no shame when it comes to what I like, and if you have a problem with that, then we’ll settle it on the racquetball court. I see too many movies to actually win any film trivia contest, so don’t waste your first pick on me. My friends rent movies from my bookcase shelves, and one day I do plan to start charging. I long to live in LA, where my movie obsession will actually help me fit in, but for now I am content with my home in Austin. I prefer indies to blockbusters, Longhorns to Sooners and Halloween to Friday the 13th. I miss the classics, as well as John Ritter, and I hope to one day sit down and interview the amazing Kate Winslet.
