Adam Sandler and Netflix have a stable relationship. The actor’s production company and the platform have been associated since 2014 and that is why there are many films starring the American comedian.

In recent days it was learned that the alliance will recover a 1996 comedy that the actor’s most loyal fans have kept well in their hearts.

The actor starred in several successful comedies in the nineties: Bulletproof, The Best of My Weddings, The Water Carrier, A Great Dad. But in the midst of those premieres he was the face of a cult classic closely linked to local sports: Happy Gilmore.

Happy Gilmore will have its sequel

Netflix confirmed a sequel to Happy Gilmore with nothing more and nothing less than with Adam Sandler himself as the protagonist and screenwriter.

It was at an event for advertisers held in recent days in New York. Although the script will once again be in charge of Sandler, it is not yet known if Dennis Dugan, the director of the original, will return to direct.

In March, Christopher McDonaldthe actor who plays the unforgettable villain Shooter McGavin, had told EW that Sandler had prepared the draft for the second part.

In Happy Gilmore, Sandler plays Happy, a hockey player with anger issues who one day discovers he has a talent for golf and uses it to try to save his grandmother’s house from foreclosure.

He is joined in the cast, in addition to McDonald, by Julie Bowen, Frances Bay, Carl Weathers, Allen Covert and Ben Stiller with a special participation, among others.

A box office hit

Happy Gilmore, which ranked second at the box office on its opening weekend, It cost 12 million dollars and raised just over 40. It had a measured success in a year in which Roland Emmerich’s Independence Day broke the box office grossing almost 820 million.

Something curious happened with the film: he made an interesting name on the American golf circuit. He was endorsed by niche sites such as Golf.com, Consequence of Sound and Golf Digest, and earned a place in local golf culture.

Thanks to the film, for example, the “Happy Gilmore swing” emerged, a joke move that many professional golfers try for fun on their tours.

On the other hand, it can be said that there is a golfer, Jamie Sadlowski, who was also a hockey player, becomes known as “the real Happy Gilmore”; that McDonald participated in a commercial for a golf video game like Shooter; or that Sandler revived his famous swing in 2021 for the 25th anniversary of the film. A cult classic.
