Hubie Halloween

Director: Steven Brill
Year Released: 2020
Rating: 0.0

In Salem, Massachusetts (also home to the House of Seven Gables!) man-child Hubie (Adam Sandler) - who is obsessed with Halloween (despite being scared of everything) - gets taunted by the entire town until Trick or Treat night rolls around and people start going missing and he looks for them.  Sandler can be forgiven for a lot of things because of Uncut Gems, but this is painfully hard to watch: it's neat that he gets his friends (Steve Buscemi, Rob Schneider, Kevin James, Ben Stiller, etc.) and family (wife Jackie, daughters Sadie and Sunny) together to make something goofy, but the "comedy" is about on the same level as any show on Nick Jr. and there isn't enough marijuana in Matthew McConaughey's basement to get most people to laugh at it.  Only in Sandler's Universe can an awkward middle-aged virgin with a strange voice land Julie Bowen.
