Adam Sandler going on ‘100% Fresher’ tour (presale for NY/NJ shows)
It has the plenty of the dick jokes you’d expect, but it’s also (mostly) packed with the earnestness, honesty, and weirdness you find in his best work. In that respect, it feels like a successor to (and improvement upon) Sandy Wexler, the third of his four Netflix films. Sandy Wexler (preceded by The Ridiculous 6 and The Do-Over, and followed by The Week Of) was a strange movie, mostly because Sandler was doing a bit the whole time as a clueless, nebbishy talent manager — yet he still managed to convey that it was completely heartfelt (the title character is based on Sandler’s real-life manager, Sandy Wernick).
That improbably poignant tone persists in 100% Fresh. It’s a compelling showcase of Sandler’s standup, and it falls perfectly in the middle of what appears to be something of a Sandlerssance. [Vox]
