Back in October 2014, comedian Adam Sandler signed a groundbreaking deal with Netflix to produce and star in four new movies exclusively for the streaming service. The first movie to come out of this deal was the Western comedy The Ridiculous Six. Last month, we learned that the second movie is The Do-Over, with the streaming service releasing a brief teaser trailer. Today we have the first full trailer for this comedy, which sheds new light on the story.
In The Do-Over, Adam Sandler plays “Max” and David Spade plays “Charlie,” old friends tired of their mundane lives who reunite at their 25th high school reunion for the ultimate mulligan: they decide to wipe the slate clean for a do-over. After faking their deaths and assuming new identities, could their lives be better the second time around? The comedy is set for release on Netflix Friday, May 27, just in time for the Memorial Day weekend holiday.
Adam Sandler and David Spade lead an all-star cast that also includes Paula Patton, Kathryn Hahn, Luis Guzman, Michael Chiklis, Sean Astin, Catherine Bell, Natasha Leggero, Nick Swardson, Torsten Voges, Renee Taylor and Matt Walsh. While The Do-Over won’t be released in theaters, it will still debut on the same weekend as the highly-anticipated sequels X-Men: Apocalypse and Alice Through the Looking Glass. Obviously there won’t be any box office figures to compare The Do-Over with these big summer movies, but it will give comedy fans something to watch over the long weekend.
Steven Brill directs The Do-Over from a script by Kevin Barnett and Chris Pappas. This film marks Steven Brill’s third collaboration with Adam Sandler, after directing Little Nicky and Mr. Deeds. Kevin Barnett and Chris Pappas both served as writers and producers on the TV series Unhitched, and Kevin Barnett previously wrote the scripts for Hall Pass and The Heartbreak Kid. Adam Sandler also serves as a producer with Allen Covert and Kevin Grady.
Adam Sandler and David Spade were both on Saturday Night Live at the same time in the 1990s, and they went on to star in movies such as I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry, Grown Ups, Jack and Jill and Grown Ups 2. They both also provided their voices for Hotel Transylvania and Hotel Transylvania 2. In addition to the trailer, we also have the first poster for The Do-Over featuring both Sandler and Spade in action, which you can check out below.
