Here’s a shocking realization. Adam Sandler’s less than stellar ‘The Ridiculous Six’ has become the most streamed movie of all time on Netflix.
During the keynote speech at CES 2016, Netflix CEO Reed Hastings and chief content officer Ted Sarandos revealed that the movie has been a huge success.
“In the first 30 days on Netflix it’s been the most-watched movie in the history of Netflix,”Sarandos said at CES.
“It’s also enjoyed a spot at number one in every territory we operate in, and in many of them it’s still number one.”
Adam Sandler hasn’t been the box office darling he once was at the box office in recent years. His movie Pixels was a critical flop, and his brand of humor has been lost of many younger generations.
Netflix has earned critical praise for such series’ as “House of Cards,” “Orange Is the New Black,” and the new true-crime show “Making a Murderer,” but ‘The Ridiculous Six’ has been ridiculed by critics and fans.
Netflix has the award-season contender “Beasts of No Nation,” as well as the “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” and Pee-wee Herman sequels coming soon, I have a feeling Adam Sandler won’t sit at the top of its most-watched movie charts for very long.
And “Ridiculous Six” is one of just four original Sandler movies you’ll be seeing on Netflix. He signed a four-pictured deal with the streaming service in 2014.
