After JACK AND JILL, various Hotel Transylvania films, and an endless string of Netflix “movies” that never worked Adam Sandler must’ve brought a basket of mini muffins to his agents and offered his password to him Amazon Prime account because his new movie, UNCUT GEMS, looks damn good. This isn’t GROWN UPS 2 Adam Sandler (I actually, low-key, love that movie), this is actually SPANGLISH and FUNNY PEOPLE Adam Sandler that’s here to prove he’s knows an acting teacher or two.
In the gritty crime thriller, UNCUT GEMS, Howard Ratner (Sandler), a charismatic New York City jeweler is always on the lookout for the next big score. When he makes a series of high-stakes bets that could lead to the windfall of a lifetime, Howard must perform a precarious high-wire act, balancing business, family, and encroaching adversaries on all sides, in his relentless pursuit of the ultimate win, according to IMBD, of course.
UNCUT GEMS, which also stars Idina Menzel, LaKeith Stanfield, and God help us, The Weekend, is expected in theaters this Christmas.
