Adam Sandler breaks Rotten Tomatoes record with new Netflix movie

The actor, who has a $350m (£199m) deal with the streaming service, appears in You Are So Not Invited to My Bat Mitzvah, a comedy in which he stars alongside his wife and two daughters.

It’s toppled sports drama Hustle to become his best-reviewed film, according to aggregate site Rotten Tomatoes.

This marks something of a turnaround for Sandler, whose previous films for the streaming service, including The Ridiculous 6, Sandy Wexler and Murder Mystery, were all torn apart by critics.

However, You Are So Not Invited to My Bat Mitzvah is seeing Sandler receive some of the best reviews of his career to date.

On Rotten Tomatoes, the film has a critics score of 95 per cent. For comparison, Hustle has 93 per cent.

Following behind is The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected), which has 92 per cent, Uncut Gems with 91 per cent and Paul Thomas Anderson film Punch-Drunk Love (77 per cent).

Audiences are not in agreement, though. While Hustle remains his most popular film among fans, You Are So Not Invited to My Bat Mitzvah currently sits at 67 per cent.

The film follows two best friends whose bat mitzvah plans get affected by a popular boy that they fight for the attention of. 

Sandler stars in the film alongside his Uncut Gems co-star Idina Menzel as well as his wife Jackie and their two daughters, Sadie, 17, and Sunny, 14.
