The new Happy Maddison production has Sandler introducing a new, albeit a little familiar, persona to his array of characters. Meet Hubie Dubois, a well-meaning guy who has long made it his mission to keep safe those living in his hometown, Salem. The issues he constantly takes to the now tired authorities aren’t usually worth worrying about, but this Halloween, it appears he’s onto a very real case.
It goes without saying at this point, but if you’re a fan of Sandler’s comedies then this should be right up your alley. The film is also boasting quite the all-star cast, including Kevin James, Julie Bowen, Maya Rudolph, Ray Liotta, Steve Buscemi, Kenan Thompson, Rob Schneider, Michael Chiklis, Shaquille O’Neal, and Noah Schnapp, among many others.
Hubie Halloween, directed by longtime Sandler collaborator Steven Brill (Little Nicky, Mr. Deeds, The Do-Over, Sandy Wexler) and written by Sandler and Tim Herlihy (Billy Madison, Happy Gilmore, The Wedding Singer), will be streaming on Netflix from October 7th.
