Adam Sandler wants to make films for Netflix, because ‘Netflix rhymes with Wet Chicks’

Adam Sandler’s once prominent Happy Madison production company will release and stream their next four films only on Netflix, adding more fire to Netlfix’s continuous battle with cinemas. Sandler said he agreed to Netlfix’s offer because the multi-million dollar streaming company rhymes with “Wet Chicks,” proof that Sandler’s four upcoming films will be taken seriously.

“When these fine people came to me with an offer to make four movies for them, I immediately said yes for one reason and one reason only. Netflix rhymes with Wet Chicks,” said Sandler. “Let the streaming begin!”

Apparently the director, producer and actor makes creative decisions based on rhymes. Makes you wonder what Blended, That’s My Boy and Jack and Jill rhymed with. Sandler’s recent unsuccessful titles seem to not stress Netflix chief content officer Ted Sarandos. According to Sarandos, Sandler’s film has the highest repeat viewing figures on Netflix. Adam Sandler films that are currently streaming consist of favorites such as Punch-Drunk Love and Happy Gilmore, both made when Sandler was still liked.

“People love Adam’s films on Netflix and often watch them again and again. His appeal spans across viewers of all ages – everybody has a favorite movie, everyone has a favorite line – not just in the US but all over the world,” said Sarandos.

Netflix recently announced Monday, that a Crouching Tiger sequel will also be released and streamed on Netflix. These movie deals are more evidence that Netflix has the profits and reputation to challenge cinemas and release movies only via their streaming media.

Netflix has exclusively released major hit series such as House of Cards and Orange Is The New Black. Their collaboration with Sandler doesn’t come close to favorites such as these, so is Netflix dropping the ball or what?

What is certain is that this ongoing battle between cinemas and Netflix has taken an interesting turn. Though Netflix might think they have the upper hand, they are releasing Sandler movies no one really wants to see. Guess now, all audiences have to look forward to is not sitting through commercials for one of the least funniest man in the world.


You can remember the good ol’ days of Adam Sandler right now on Netflix with some great titles like… Happy Gilmore, Airheads,  and Anger ManagementOk, that last one was a joke. But, I made up for it by sending you to Punch Drunk Love instead of that garbage.
