Adam Sandler to make rare appearance at Minnesota casino

Jennifer Hudson

Even a poorly reviewed film like The Ridiculous 6 managed to become the most-watched film in Netflix history just 30 days after its release.

According to Netflix, its members have spent more than half a billion hours watching Sandler films - and that's just since the launch of his Netflix original The Ridiculous Six in December 2015. Last month, Netlix said Sandler had signed up to do another four films, meaning he will make eight Netflix exclusives in total.

Sandy Wexler is Adam Sandler's third collaboration with Netflix to date under his original four-picture deal, but with the recent announcement that Sandler will be making a further four movies for the streaming giant in a new deal, it's safe to say he's not going anywhere anytime soon. The Ridiculous 6 has a 0 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes, for fuck's sake.

In the movie, the 35-year-old actress plays an aspiring singer in 1990s Hollywood named Courtney Clarke opposite Adam Sandler, who plays talent agent Sandy Wexler.

Netflix has also confirmed that it would be happy to offer its movies to cinemas for simultaneous release, but would not consider letting the silver screen have first dibs.

But although the company is expecting to hit 100 million subscribers this week, executives are still not satisfied.

That calculates to just under 30 million hours per month and, as Uproxx estimated, about a million hours per day; Netflix's total subscribership is now around 99 million users.

"You know, think about it, when you watch a show from Netflix and you get addicted to it, you stay up late at night ..."
