    Let’s taint the feelings you have about the first one by creating an unnecessary sequel. I’m not even an Adam Sandler or Happy Gilmore fan, but I can just imagine how disappointed actual fans are to hear this news.

      “Unnecessary” is the weirdest complaint about sequels. All movies are unnecessary, people just make them because they want to.

        I probably shouldn’t judge it as unnecessary before I see it, however, Hollywood and Adam Sandler especially like to make cash grab sequels, and I feel cash grab sequels are unnecessary. Making a sequel because you have additional story you want to tell is totally ok, but making a movie solely to cash in on a previous story is not.

    That’s the kind of movie that definitely doesn’t need a sequel, as much as I liked the original…

    As mentioned last time this was revealed, it will be a minor role for Adam and the major roles will go to his kids again.

    Inb4 its the reverse story of one, but with his daughter. She is trying to play golf, hates hockey and thinks it’s dumb. Wins women’s NHL Stanley cup.

    The 1996 comedy stands written by Sandler and Tim Herlihy stands as one of Sandler’s most popular films, telling the store of an ice hockey player who discovers he can channel his anger into winning pro golf tournaments.

    Drew Barrymore also teased the announcement on her talk show, telling viewers, “This just in, I have breaking news….

    Christopher McDonald who played the golfer Shooter McGavin the first film, has suggested his character might return in the sequel.

    Sandler has a $250 million Netflix deal and the actor-comedian has produced eight titles for the streaming service, ranging from the somewhat notorious Western parody The Ridiculous Six to dramedy Sandy Wexler to his acclaimed stand-up special 100% Fresh (which ended up at 90 percent fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, in case you’re wondering).

    His most recent was the well reviewed teen comedy You Are So Not Invited to My Bat Mitzvah which premiered on Netflix last August.
