Adam Sandler is known for the cameos that happen in his movies.
We often see recurring people in small parts in all his films, including his real-life wife, Jackie Sandler.
But, for the first time, we get to see his daughters — Sunny and Sadie — in one of his films, and they are said to do such an amazing job!
You Are So Not Invited to My Bat Mitzvah is Sandler’s new Netflix comedy, and it is really going to be one of his funniest.
It is about two 12-year-old besties — Lydia and Stacy — who have been each other’s “person” their entire lives.
Now that they are almost 13, it is time for them to start thinking about their bat mitzvahs — a uniquely Jewish rite of passage and only the biggest day of their young lives.
Lydia and Stacy are determined to throw the best bat mitzvahs, so their “adult” lives can start off on the best foot possible.
But, of course, a popular boy comes between them before their big days. Teenage girls, AMIRITE?!? Drama, drama, drama.
Will their friendship — and parties — be able to survive?
I’m betting yes, but you just have to watch and find out!
Now, in the movie, Adam Sandler actually plays the father to his own girls — so it’s hilariously not far from real life.
This isn’t just a movie about being Jewish. It’s a movie about being human. It’s a feel-good story that doesn’t shy away from the hard parts of growing up. I love coming-of-age films because it’s this thing we all experience.Sammi Cohen, Director
Besides Adam and his daughters, Idina Menzel (Frozen) plays one of the moms, and I can’t freaking wait to see her in action.
But, it’s the girls who really steal the show.
We would rework a line if it didn’t sound like something a kid would say today. Both Sunny and Sadie are so gifted, and they both have such a specific strength and tone — These characters were made for them. It was fun to watch them do their comedy thing on screen.Sammi Cohen, Director
