Steven Brill directs Adam Sandler, Kevin James and Julie Bowen in this broad comedy where the town joke protects his community from a Halloween night full of unseen terrors.
Big, dumb, unrelenting stupidness. This is the first time in a while Sandler has played one of his Jerry Lewis inspired man-child schmucks. It is the strong, forgotten, kid friendly flavour he founded his stardom on and it opens his unique formula up to having a lot more gross out jokes and unabashed saccharine heart. Probably not particularly good for you but very entertaining to watch. Littered with silly memorable roles, especially for Steve Buscemi, Julie Bowen and Ray Liotta. Hubie Halloween outstays its welcome by forgetting to end but everyone is having a ball so you just have to wait them out.
