Adam Sandler earns raves at Cannes Film Fest (yes, really)

Actors Ben Stiller, from left, Dustin Hoffman, Emma Thompson, director Noah Baumbach and actor Adam Sandler pose for photographers during the photo call for the film The Meyerowitz Stories at the 70th worldwide film festival, Cannes, southern France, Sunday, May 21, 2017. But with Noah Baumbach directing, Sandler pulls off a performance as one of the Meyerowitz siblings that gently reveals his character's insecurity and irritation beneath a shroud of laughter.

Speaking at the event on the French Riviera, he said: "I was misty-eyed, laughing". The Meyerowitz Stories is Sandler's first Cannes entry since 2002's Punch Drunk Love with director Paul Thomas Anderson, and is set for release on streaming service Netflix later this year (17). The Hollywood Reporter's Todd McCarthy applauds Baumbach for his "stingingly amusing" tale of a messed-up family, perfectly brought to life onscreen by "sterling turns from a wonderful cast", highlighted by Hoffman and, "no kidding, Adam Sandler", who he notes delivers "a legitimately fine and felt presentation of a modern sad sack". I just couldn't believe we were going to get to do this movie and show this story.
