Critic Reviews for The Do-Over

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (5)

Typical Adam Sandler fare in every way, from the raunchy humor to the inclusion of his buddies to the deplorable view of women to the vacation disguised as a movie shoot to the forced sentimentality in the final act.

The '90s version of The Do-Over would have paired a snarky, cowardly Spade with a goofball weirdo Sandler. Now they're just two more bros-before-hos.

May 29, 2016 | Rating: C- | Full Review…

A film that gets markedly dumber with every passing minute.

May 27, 2016 | Rating: 0.5/4 | Full Review…

The plot threads can be a little hard to follow ... but Sandler and Spade's partnership gives the whole enterprise enough emotional grounding to make up for it.

May 27, 2016 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

For years, we've been asking Adam Sandler to try harder. We've been making a huge mistake.

May 27, 2016 | Rating: D- | Full Review…

The Do-Over, Adam Sandler's second Netflix film, is what happens when a successful artist is given lots of money and very little direction.

Audience Reviews for The Do-Over

Disappointing farce meets ideal demographic's wish fulfillment. An excuse for cast and crew to shoot in beach locales. Far cry from the 90s movies that forever made these two stars (though rewatch those and I guarantee you'll realize that they aren't as good as you thought they were when you were a kid, teen, young adult, new parent, whatever general young person you were in the 90s).

Did it exceed my expectations? Yes. Were my expectations so laughably low that that's basically a nothing comment? Also yes.

I promised myself never to watch an Adams Sandler film again, angry at the laziness of his features (like the bad kid in class daring the teacher and disrupting the class only so long as no learning gets done) but having relented, this one although formulaic is not entirely used toilet paper. There are plenty of beer commercials and Sandler's mean spiritedness to fill a Winnebago, but at least there's a catfight too. Much better than I initially thought it would be.
