In a heartwarming twist, Adam Sandler is embracing a new family-oriented venture with his upcoming film, “You Are So Not Invited to My Bat Vitzvah.”

This promising coming-of-age movie showcases Sandler sharing the screen with his real-life daughters, Sadie and Sunny, as well as his wife, Jackie.

The trailer for the film dropped recently, unveiling a charming story that revolves around Sunny Sandler’s character, Stacy.

Eagerly anticipating her dreamy bat mitzvah, Stacy is seen in the trailer enthusiastically presenting her extravagant party ideas to her on-screen parents, portrayed by Idina Menzel and Adam Sandler himself.

However, things take an amusing turn when a young boy named Andy Goldfarb, played by Dylan Hoffman, becomes a source of discord between Stacy and her best friend Lydia, played by Samantha Lorraine.

As if proving his versatility, Sandler showed up at Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour in Los Angeles, taking part in the trend of dressing up in outfits inspired by Swift’s albums. You should also check Steph Curry Joins Paramore Onstage for Epic “Misery Business” Performance.
