Adam Sandler is galloping to Netflix this December in the original comedy movie The Ridiculous 6. The first trailer and poster have arrived, and it actually looks, dare we say, funny? The popular comedian is joined by a cavalcade of stars for this bizarre Western that is certainly unlike anything you've ever seen before. Unless you've seen some of Adam Sandler's more off-the-wall movies like Little Nicky and You Don't Mess with the Zohan.
The Ridiculous 6 is the first of four Adam Sandler movies produced exclusively for Netflix. The jaw-dropping cast includes Adam Sandler's Grown Ups 2 co-star Taylor Lautner. The former Twilight heartthrob makes up one of the 6, and is joined by Terry Crews, Jorge Garcia, Rob Schneider and Luke Wilson.
But they're not the only comedy luminaries making an appearance in this throw back to such 70s classics as Blazing Saddles and The Frisco Kid. Three-time Oscar nominee Nick Nolte is teaming-up with The Voice host Blake Shelton, comedian Whitney Cummings, Steve Zahn, Danny Trejo, Chris Parnell and Lavell Crawford. The comedy also promises a stable of amazing cameos from some of Adam Sandler's best friends. Dropping by for a quick bit of fun will be a few Happy Madison regulars including Steve Buscemi, Dan Aykroyd, Will Forte, Jon Lovitz and Vanilla Ice. The film's cast only rivals that of The Hateful Eight in terms of Westerns set to arrive this Christmas.
In The Ridiculous 6, Adam Sandler plays man who grew up as an orphan among an Indian tribe. Taylor Lautner, Rob Schneider, Luke Wilson, Jorge Garcia and Terry Crews play his half-brothers. Nick Nolte plays Adam Sandler's long-lost father; Chris Parnell is a bank manager; Jon Lovitz is a wealthy industrialist and Whitney Cummings is his flirtatious wife. Will Forte and Danny Trejo are the leaders of rival gangs, while Steve Buscemi is playing a local jack-of-all-trades. Blake Shelton is playing Wyatt Earp, while Vanilla Ice is playing Mark Twain.
Written by Tim Herlihy and Adam Sandler, The Ridiculous 6 is directed by Happy Madison regular Frank Coraci. The comedy will get a limited theatrical release day-and-date with its premiere on Netflix's streaming service on December 11. Take a first look at this howling mad Ol' West parody. If you can't get tickets to The Hateful Eight 70mm Roadshow this Christmas, this is surely the next best thing! And we have the first poster, which unites The Ridiculous 6! Surely there will be a sequel.
