‘You Are So Not Invited To My Bat Mitzvah’ Trailer: Adam Sandler Stars With His Family In Netflix Comedy Full Of Teen Drama

We often joke that Adam Sandler movies are thinly-veiled paid vacations with his buddies. Well, now that he’s got this long-term deal with Netflix, and things have been going pretty good, his movies are now launching pads for his kid’s career. You Are So Not Invited to My Bat Mitzvah finds Sandler playing backup to his daughter Sunny Sandler.

Sandler plays Stacy, with Samantha Lorraine as her best friend Lydia, high school best friends who have always dreamed of an epic joint bat mitzvah, only for things to go sideways because of a cute boy and other teen drama.

Also in the cast are Idina Menzel, Jackie Sandler, Sadie Sandler, Samantha Lorraine, Dylan Hoffman, Sarah Sherman, Luis Guzmán, Dan Bulla, Ido Mosseri, Jackie Hoffman, and Zaara Kuttemperoor.

So you’ve got a full household of Sandlers, including Adam’s wife and daughters.

The film was directed by Sammi Cohen (Crush) from Alison Peck’s script adapting Fiona Rosenbloom’s book.

You Are So Not Invited to My Bat Mitzvah hits Netflix on August 25th.
