Is “Hubie Halloween” good? Is it bad? Does it matter? This Adam Sandler movie is goofy as heck, but exhibits a genuine love for Halloween and the surrounding season. In it, Sandler plays Hubie Dubois, an autumnal enthusiast who gets involved in a seriously scary mystery that takes over his small town of Salem, Massachusetts, one of the spookiest towns in the United States.
Although he is often the butt of pranks and the victim of bullying from his neighbors, Hubie gets the last laugh when a Halloween threat turns out to be real, and only Hubie is able to save the day. In addition to Sandler, “Hubie Halloween” features some of your favorite comedians, including Julie Bowen, Maya Rudolph, Kevin James, Kenan Thompson, Tim Meadows, Rob Schneider, and Steve Buscemi. This film is the first of Netflix’s original Halloween movies, a new trend we can look forward to continuing in upcoming years.
