May 16, 2024 10:13 am in by

Netflix has dropped a bombshell at its 2024 Upfront presentation in New York City’s Pier 59 Studios, announcing the comeback of the 57-year-old comedy icon to reprise his role in a much-anticipated sequel to the 1996 hit ‘Happy Gilmore’.

The original film, a cult classic that raked in over three times its budget, showcased Sandler as a hot-headed ex-hockey player turned golf prodigy, swinging his way to save his grandma’s house.

Given its roaring success and Sandler’s magnetic charm, it’s a no-brainer for Netflix to bring back the magic of Happy Gilmore.

The buzz around this sequel sparked earlier this year when friend and co-star Drew Barrymore spilled the beans about Sandler penning a follow-up to their beloved sports comedy.

Netflix is tight-lipped about the details and plot of the sequel, but anticipation is sky-high.

This sequel isn’t just another project for Sandler; it’s part of his whopping $250 million Netflix deal, under which he’s already delivered a mix of hits and misses.

Despite a rocky ride with critics and a mixed bag of fan reactions, Sandler’s Netflix journey has seen its share of gems, like the fan-favorite special 100% Fresh, proving his comedic genius is timeless.

Among the less celebrated, The Ridiculous 6 hit a real low with a zero percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes, but Sandler’s venture into Netflix originals has been bold and unapologetic.

This upcoming Happy Gilmore sequel not only promises a nostalgic trip down memory lane but also a chance for Sandler to swing back into the hearts of fans and critics alike.
