Last year, Adam Sandler debuted The Ridiculous 6, the first film to arise with his deal with Netflix. For better or worse, it became the biggest movie opening for the streaming service, proving that there is still a pretty large audience for Sandler movies. It’s hard to imagine there are three more movies left to go as part of this deal. Alas, here’s the first teaser for the second one, The Do-Over.
The brief video features a fast-paced compilation of random scenes, but it’s mainly here to announce The Do-Over will drop on Netflix this Memorial Day weekend on May 27th. (Fans of the original series Bloodline will recognize that as the premiere of its second season.) Sandler’s longtime cohort David Spade and Warcraft’s Paula Patton co-star in this film about a bank manager whose life is turned upside down when a friend from his past manipulates him into faking his own death and embarking on an adventure.
If it looks like a Sandler movie, if it sounds like a Sandler movie, it must be a Sandler movie. Watch the teaser below, though be warned of a butt shot about half-way through.
Steven Brill, who worked with Sandler on Little Nicky and Mr. Deeds, helms The Do-Over. Also featured in the cast are Kathryn Hahn (The Visit), Luis Guzman (We’re the Millers), Michael Chiklis (Fantastic Four), Sean Astin (50 First Dates), Catherine Bell (Bruce Almighty), Natasha Leggero (Neighbors), Nick Swardson (Just Go With It), Torsten Voges (Funny People), Renee Taylor (The Producers), and Matt Walsh (Ted).
Netflix announced in January that The Ridiculous 6 was its most streamed original movie within the first 30 days of release. It wasn’t a part of this year’s Razzie nominations, which seemed odd given Sandler’s a frequent winner. Though the actor did earn himself two nominations for The Cobbler and Pixels. We’ll see if The Do-Over follows this same path.
