Adam Sandler has a reputation for getting bad reviews for his movies, but his new Netflix movie, which stars both his wife and kids, Adam Sandler breaks Rotten Tomatoes record.
You Are So Not Invited to My Bat Mitzvah, a new Netflix movie based on Fiona Rosenbloom's 2005 coming-of-age book with the same name, has gotten a near-perfect score on the Tomatometer, which is a record for Adam Sandler.

Adam Sandler now has a movie that is the best-reviewed of all time. You Are So Not Invited to My Bat Mitzvah, the actor and comedian's new Netflix movie, has gotten a better score on Rotten Tomatoes than any of his other movies in the 34 years he's been making movies.
You Are So Not Invited to My Bat Mitzvah, Sandler's newest movie, came out on Netflix on Friday and is now Sandler's highest-rated movie on Rotten Tomatoes. The movie has a 96% Certified Fresh rate, which means that more reviews liked it than didn't like it.
That beats out Hustle in 2022 (93 percent), The Meyerowitz Stories in 2017 (92 percent), and Uncut Gems in 2019 (91 percent). Still, it's possible that the rankings for Bat Mitzvah could change later in the week if more bad reviews come out.
Sandler has a small part in the Bat Mitzvah, but he directed the movie and his daughters Sunny and Sadie, who are both in their teens, star in it. Sandler also plays their father. Jackie Sandler, who is their real mother, also makes an appearance in the movie. However, in a mini "Uncut Gems" reunion, Idina Menzel plays the part of the "Happy Gilmore" star's wife.
Sarah Sherman from "Saturday Night Live," Dean Scott Vazquez from "Transformers: Rise of the Beasts," and Samantha Lorraine from "The Walking Dead: World Beyond" are also in the group. And it's clear that fans love the movie because it has a whopping 95 percent score from reviewers, making it his best-reviewed movie, according to an aggregate site.
Based on the young adult book by Fiona Rosenbloom, the official description says: "Lifelong best friends Stacy (Sunny Sandler) and Lydia (Samantha Lorraine) have long dreamed of epic bat mitzvahs, but when popular boy Andy Goldfarb (Dylan Hoffman) and Hebrew school drama get in the way, their perfect plans go hilariously wrong."
The movie is directed by Sammi Cohen (Crush), written by Alison Peck, produced by Happy Madison and Alloy Entertainment, and stars Idina Menzel, Sarah Sherman, Luis Guzmán, and Jackie Sandler. The project is part of Sandler's $250 million deal with Netflix. The actor and comedian has made an amazing eight titles for the streaming service. They range from the spoof of a Western called "The Ridiculous Six" to the drama "Sandy Wexler."
Adam Sandler, the American actor, comedian, and filmmaker, has had a varied career in terms of critical reception. His movies have received a wide range of reviews on Rotten Tomatoes.
While some of Adam Sandler's films have been well-received by audiences and critics alike, others have faced more negative reviews. His comedies often have a distinct style that can be polarizing, appealing to some viewers while not resonating as well with others. Some of his earlier works like "Happy Gilmore" and "The Wedding Singer" are generally regarded as more positively received.
However, Sandler's movies have often faced criticism for their reliance on lowbrow humor and certain repetitive elements. His production company, Happy Madison Productions, has been associated with a series of films that sometimes receive lower ratings from critics.
Adam Sandler got great reviews for his role in "Uncut Gems," but his latest Netflix movie, "You Are So Not Invited to My Bat Mitzvah," has so far gotten even better reviews from reviewers, and his youngest daughter, Sunny, has also gotten great reviews.
As of Monday afternoon, critics gave the family comedy starring his girls a 96% positive rating, while the 2019 Safdie Brothers drama has a 91% positive rating. The comedy, which aired on the streamer on August 25 and was directed by Sammi Cohen, didn't get as many good reviews (66% positive).
