Sandy Wexler is a satirical homage to Adam Sandler’s real-life manager, Sandy Wernick, who worked as a talent manager in Los Angeles during the 1990’s.
Sandy, played by Adam Sandler, is a weird and lonely guy with a good heart. He treats his clients like family and never gives up on them. Everything changes when Sandy falls in love with his new client Courtney, played by Jennifer Hudson, who is a talented singer.
The story is narrated in bits and pieces by famous Hollywood actors in a fun and comic way. You will also see some familiar faces from Sandler’s other movies like Kevin James, Terry Crews, Rob Schneider and Nick Swardson doing small yet important roles.
Sandy Wexler is not a full on comedy. It is an emotional and light-hearted love story at its core. You won’t laugh your heart out but it does have a few fun moments through the mishaps of Sandy’s clients who are trying to make it big in the industry. Even though the film stays flat from start to end, Adam Sandler has tried his best to make this mediocre story entertaining.
You will need some patience and popcorn to complete this 2-hour long film. Watch it only if you are an Adam Sandler fan.
