Ranking of every Netflix Original by Adam Sandler from worst to best

Adam Sandler’s Netflix tenure got off to a bad start with 2015’s The Ridiculous 6, the lowest-rated film of his career. Inspired by The Magnificent Seven, this comedic western casts Sandler as Tommy “White Knife” Dunson Stockburn, a white man raised by Native Americans. To his great surprise, Tommy learns that he has five outlaw half-brothers: saloon pianist Chico Stockburn (Terry Crews), hillman Herm Stockburn (Jorge Garcia), cheerful brawler Pete “Lil Pete” Stockburn (Taylor Lautner). Mexican burro driver Ramon Lopez Stockburn (Rob Schneider) and former Abraham Lincoln bodyguard Danny Stockburn (Luke Wilson). Together, this merry band of misfits sets out to rescue their father Frank (Nick Nolte), a dying bank robber kidnapped by bandits looking for the $50,000 loot he has reserved for Tommy’s tribe .

The production was fraught with controversy when about a dozen Native American actors walked off the set (via The Guardian) in protest of its portrayal of Apache culture. Her complaints ranged from characters named Beaver’s Breath and No Bra to a scene in which a Native American woman smoked a peace pipe while crouching and urinating, as well as the incorrect positioning of feathers on a teepee.

Perhaps the most positive review came from The Chicago Tribune’s Michael Phillips, who said it was “a long, long way from the worst Sandler movie ever made.” But that was about the best thing for the film, which RogerEbert.com’s Brian Tallerico called “almost startlingly bad,” particularly for its “broad racism and misogyny.”
