Wow it only took Netflix to create a Adam Sandler movie which was actually worth watching. Was this great? No, but it wasn’t the Cobbler or Blended either. If I had to compare this movie to any of the previous Sandler flix I would have to lean towards Mr. Deeds.
Depending on what type of movie watcher you currently are, this movie may not be for you. Its not suppose to be western, it feels like a Happy Maddison Production. It’s definitely a movie that doesn’t take itself seriously and you shouldn’t either.
Adam Sandler has said in multiple interviews he was trying to make a western similar to Blazing Saddles, I am sad to say he did not accomplish that. This movie really doest even reach the likes of a Million Ways To Die in The West. Its a good thing this was a Netflix Original because Ridiculous 6 just reminds me of the John Candy comedy Wagons East, A Walmart $3 bin Movie.
Depending on what side of the fence you are on, you either loved the cameo’s from the usual friends of Sandler’s or you ended up hating the movie because of them. I personally loved the appearances of Terry Crews, Jorge Garcia, and Vanilla Ice.
This wasn’t the best film but it was good. It’s definitely worth a watch since it’s on Netflix. It was nice to see Sandler kind of redeem himself from some of his previous movies. I give this One Thumbs Up.
