The new Netflix movie, ‘You Are So Not Invited to My Bat Mitzvah stars Adam Sandler’s daughter Sunny in the lead role. This is the first leading role for Sunny and Adam Sandler also stars in this movie. While this comedy movie is pleasant enough for younger audiences, the older audience might not prefer it.
The movie is clearly designed to launch Sandlers’s daughter along with her sister Sadie Sandler who appears in a supporting role. The movie also has Jackie Sandler in a supporting role. All in all it’s a Sandler starter family movie. This Netflix movie is directed by Sammi Cohen.
The movie is about a 13-year-old girl, Stacy Friedman played by Sunny Sandler who is going to have her “bat mitzvah” or a Jewish coming-of-age ritual. The movie is highly sanitized to be a teenage-friendly movie with no rough edges.
Even though the movie tries to present the confusion teenagers face at this time of their lives and relationships with friends and families. Adam Sandler is seen in the supporting role of Stacy’s father in the movie.
He occasionally drops in and out of movie scenes giving words of advice to his reel and real-life daughter with his trademark droll delivery. But is clearly giving moral support to his daughter as she takes her first step in the industry.
As for Sunny Stacy successfully has her Bat Mitzvah ceremony which is not as important as the party afterward. In this after-party, she gets her chance to talk with the cutest boy in her grade.
Stacy does not have any interest in age-old ceremonies when she clearly says to her father (Sandler) “Okay, it is to you, and old people, and God and stuff.” Instead, it’s the party afterward that is supposed to open her door toward an exciting life. Soon Stacy realizes her dream bat mitzvah can never be real and discovers the pains of her growing teenage life. She starts to learn to deal with evolving relationships around her, especially female friendships.
