We have to talk about something and that something is Adam Sandler and also David Spade.
Netflix plays host to some of the most beautiful, educational, must-watch films ever produced.
Think Pulp Fiction. Blackfish. The Thin Blue Line.
These are films which challenge and inform and entertain and leave us feeling like the 90 minutes of our life we’ve given up were well-spent.
None of these movies are the most-watched in Netflix history, however.
That title belongs to Adam Sandler’s The Ridiculous 6, a film about six (caucasian?) Native American brothers (they are also cowboys) who set out on a mission to track down their deadbeat dad.
Okay. Deep breaths.
First I challenge you to find me a critically-acclaimed film with the word ‘ridiculous’ in the title.
Here are some real-life quotes from the film.
"Lookie here. My day is made. I didn't even finish breakfast and I get to kill me a stinkin' Injun (Indian, obviously)."
"She's a virgin? I'm a virgin, too... unless you count cantaloupes."
"Well, I can play the piano with my dick."
Like every other Adam Sandler movie out there, David Spade and Rob Schneider feature heavily, both of whom are pre-pubescent boys trapped in the bodies of crusty middle-aged men.
The human race has collectively spent half a billion hours watching this movie.
500 million hours have been spent watching The Ridiculous 6.
Us. Humanity. The human race. We have done this.
