The Do-Over (2016)



Critic Consensus: A dunderheaded story of mistaken identity, The Do-Over finds Adam Sandler and David Spade retreading old ground -- minus the comedic pep required to enliven the decidedly uninspired proceedings.

Critic Reviews for The Do-Over

All Critics (23) | Top Critics (8)

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.

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.

June 18, 2016 | Rating: .5/4 | Full Review…

Surely this movie must be almost over, you think, as you jab the pause button on your remote - only to find you are at the 50-minute mark with another 58 to go.

May 31, 2016 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Once the actual story element of The Do-Over kicks in, the movie's periodic lurches back to gross-out humour seem increasingly out of place.

May 29, 2016 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

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.

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.
