Despite his devotion to his hometown of Salem (and its Halloween celebration), Hubie Dubois is a figure of mockery for kids and adults alike. But this year, something is going bump in the night, and it’s up to Hubie to save Halloween.
It’s October 31st in Salem, Massachusetts, and a town’s eccentric, devoted community volunteer and the good-natured object of his fellow citizen’s derision and meanest pranks, finds himself in the midst of a real investigation, for a real murderer.
In 2020 you would think people would know what to expect from Adam Sandler’s (effective yet slightly hated) brand of raunchy and quick witted humor. But still there are so many smug types that somehow ridiculously expect some huge swings into left field for his Netflix original comedies.
Obviously he’s shown incredible versatility in his career but people should be able to gauge by the trailer and it being part of his Netflix contract that these aren’t Punch Drunk Love, Reign Over Me, or Uncut Gems. Know what you’re getting. The snobs that hate Sandler are the types that would go into an Applebee’s and expect a five star meal.
This film sticks to classic Sandler formulas which isn’t an issue imo. A humble basic story about an odd yet lovable main character that finds himself in the middle of a series of hilarious problems in Hubie Halloween 2020 Movie .
Along the way he runs into other weird zany characters and maybe a few villains that join in on or his hilarious antics. The actors are the usual Sandler friends that he’s had in other films.
Overall its just a nice comfort Halloween themed Sandler comedy that shouldn’t be taken so seriously by snobby critics that can’t grasp the point of these films after all these years. Throw it on and forget about the world.
