I didn’t realize Hubie Halloween was coming out until Netflix already dropped it. Netflix and Adam Sandler made a deal years back to make movies for the streaming service, and obviously Hubie Halloween is among them. Which kind of worked out in Adam Sandler‘s favor because what better year to release a movie like this than 2020?
The film is set during the modern day in Salem, Massachusetts. Everybody in the town is excited for Halloween. Obviously, this must’ve been during 2019, as there is not a face mask in sight but plenty of costumes.
Adam Sandler plays the main character who is Hubie Dubois. He works in the deli of a supermarket and is quite awkward. But he’s actually very sweet and selfless.
He’s mainly distracted by the beauty of his crush Violet Valentine, who strangely likes him back. However, people start disappearing all over the town. And it will be up to Hubie to figure out the mystery or this will be a very horrible Halloween.
Overall, Hubie Halloween was a bit disappointing. Though, I will say that it’s much much better than Sandler‘s Ridiculous 6. The plot and mystery could’ve been better, but I did like how it maintained the look and feel of a Halloween night. It may not be Sandler‘s best, but it’s far from his worst.
