New Adam Sandler film hits all-time RT score career high

You Are So Not Invited To My Bat Mitzvah

Comedian and filmmaker Adam Sandler’s latest Netflix flick, You Are So Not Invited To My Bat Mitzvah, is now his most well-reviewed film of his career. This dethrones his sports-comedy-drama Hustle, which saw him take on the role of a jaded scout for an NBA team, and fostered a 93% on the aggregator site.

His new coming-of-age comedy, however, has broken that, standing at a great 96%. Now, it isn’t all great, considering the movie does have a rather mixed crowd, standing at an audience score of 67%. For a Sandler flick, though, that’s not too shabby. It’s no secret that the comedian — while popular — isn’t known for making quality movies like other filmmakers, with a laundry list of middling films that miss the mark with critics or fans or both.

You Are So Not Invited To My Bat Mitzvah is based on a novel of the same, which follows Stacy Friedman, played by Sandler’s 14-year-old daughter Sunny. This means he actually plays second fiddle to his daughter. Meanwhile, next to her and her father, her sister Sadie and mother Jackie appear in the film in supporting roles.

This isn’t Sandler’s last project with Netflix, either. Coming in November, we have his animated coming-of-age story, Leo, which just so happens to feature his children, as well. From the trailer alone, we expect it to be middling enough to be in line with most of his other films while not offensively bad.
