The Netflix distributed western comedy made the record as the movie with most views in 30 days than any other movie released on Netflix, showing that despite bad reviews it hit home with fans of the popular comedian Adam Sandler (Grown Ups, 2010). There is no doubt that once you see Adam Sandler is starring you have been warned what to expect and The Ridiculous 6 lives up to that expectations; biting satire, crazy characters, slap-stick humour and a donkey used as a weapon in a way some may find offended. Despite Sandler occasionally dealing with more dramatic parts. he is certainly no stranger to this type of humour and knows how to deliver it. Whether this is a movie for you or not depends on whether you like this type of movie but there is no denying Sandler has gathered a ridiculous (get it?) great group of support and cameo, right from the acknowledged Nolte (48 Hours, 1982) and Harvey Keitel (The Piano, 1993) to an outstanding collection of comedians and even a fun cameo from 1980s rapper Vanilla Ice. Watch it with the expectation of killing a few hours with braindead fun and you wont be dissapointed.
The Ridiculous 6 is One of four movies Adam Sandler will be producing through an exclusive deal with Netflix.
