The do over is the latest comedy from comedian Adam Sandler. In this new film, we find out what happens when a man decides to take his life in a different direction. We learn that even a simple do over isn’t always easy. With the narcotized voiceover of David Spade, things can get pretty awkward pretty quickly.
Adam Sandler’s latest comedy
Adam Sandler’s latest comedy The Do Over was released by Netflix on Memorial Day weekend. It’s the comedian’s second direct-to-Netflix feature. Prior to this, he and the streaming service partnered on the 2015 comedy The Ridiculous Six.
In The Do Over, two down-on-their-luck guys, Charlie and Max, decide to fake their deaths to start over. This leads to the new characters getting into deeper trouble than they expected. One of them becomes a doormat in a dark corner of the gym. Others are beaten by water guns. There are also some vulgar language and crude repartee.
While The Do Over isn’t perfect, it has a good enough premise to make it a fun movie. Sandler is able to deliver a nice performance, even though the script doesn’t do his character any favors.
The Do Over was written by Kevin Barnett and Chris Pappas. Adam Sandler and David Spade star in the film. Other actors include Nick Swardson, Paula Patton, Luis Guzman, Natasha Leggero, and Michael Chiklis.
Sandler plays Max, who is in desperate straits. He decides to take a risk and pretend to die without telling his wife (McMillan) that he’s dead. As a result, he’s given the opportunity to do it all over. Unfortunately, he also brings a huge amount of money. During the process, Max also manages to get his new friend Charlie to open up about his problems.
When Charlie is not pretending to be someone else, he’s living in a terrible relationship. He has obnoxious twin stepsons. His boss at the bank is a creep who’s constantly yelling at him. He’s forced to watch his wife dance with a mulleted creep.
But, with Max’s help, Charlie’s life starts to improve. Max comes up with a plan to give them all the chances they need to live their lives. They all meet up at a high school reunion.
Ultimately, the movie is a bit of a dud. Unlike Sandler’s other Netflix movies, it lacks much substance. A lot of the scenes are about “f–king” and profanity. Most of the serious moments are too short to really make a lasting impact on the story.
On the other hand, The Do Over has plenty of violence and vulgar language. It’s also a half-assed pharmaceutical thriller. And, despite the comedy, it doesn’t offer any useful guidelines on how to revert back to your youth.
However, this is a better effort than Sandler’s last four Netflix comedies. It’s certainly not his best work. However, it does show that he can write a funny script, and he can work hard to make it a success.
Adam Sandler’s latest Netflix comedy, The Do Over, is not his best, but it’s certainly not his worst. If you like gross-out comedy, you’ll probably like this.
David Spade’s narcotized voiceover makes things worse

Review by Emilie Hornsby
The Do Over, by Lynn Painter, is a YA novel that takes the time-honored Groundhog Day storyline and reinvents it in a way that will be both surprising and satisfying. It’s a great choice for those looking for an entertaining read that isn’t overly long. This book will have you glued to the pages.
The Do Over follows a young girl named Emilie Hornsby as she attempts to make a better Valentine’s Day for her boyfriend. But first, she has to figure out what exactly is the do-mire.
In the beginning, she thinks that she has a pretty good Valentine’s Day, but when she wakes up on February fourteen, she’s greeted by a repeat of the previous day. She’s determined to do something about it, though. So she’s planning the perfect Valentine’s Day for her boyfriend, Josh. However, she’s not sure if it will work.
Fortunately, her grandmother comes to the rescue. Not only does she give her a helping hand, she helps her to discover a fun Valentine’s Day activity to try.
Another cool thing that happens is that Emilie and her chemistry lab partner, Nick, run into each other on several occasions. Their conversations are epic. And they even have a few kisses.
The plot is a bit complex and it’s easy to lose track of who is who and what’s going on, but it’s never boring. Besides, there are some interesting characters in this book.
The Do Over is a clever YA novel that tackles a number of topics. From grief to anxiety, it addresses a wide array of issues. Aside from the novelty of the Groundhog Day storyline, the book’s main point is about making a better decision in your own life.
Although the book doesn’t have a dazzling cover, it’s an easy and fun read. Readers will get to see a lot of the characters and their adventures as they try to figure out what’s wrong with their own life. Plus, it has the right mix of witty writing and interesting characters.

The Do Over is the best YA novel I’ve read this year. It’s got all of the best elements from the genre – a believable romance, an adorable love interest, and a likable villain. There’s no wacky or slapstick characters here, which makes it a pleasant read.
