There’s a certain nostalgia triggered by Hubie Halloween coming out now. It simply will not acknowledge the current year, or even decade. Considering how fucked up everything currently is and how responsive our media has become, it feels like escapism. Not only is Hubie hermetically sealed against pandemics, it won’t explore the wider cultural conversions happening about the jokes it attempts, even for a split second. The themes of these jokes include trans experience, ableism and terrifyingly, using a grizzled 65-year-old Ray Liotta to hit on a teenager. With very slight adjustments, that particular scene could have been in a Jordan Peele horror.

Sandler fans, you know what to expect, everyone else you know what to do – avoid, or the Netflix algorithm will haunt you with its seemingly endless supply of his oeuvre until Christmas.

Those choosing to stay at home instead of trick-or-treating during this year of unfunny horrors could do much worse than this.

If you're not already a Sandler fan you'll probably quickly tire of his antics, but for the fans Hubie Halloween is another slice of affectionate silliness...

[It] isn't especially quick or funny even by the comedian's basic standards - but is also too cheerfully, indifferently silly to raise much ire.

Just generally entertaining enough to be harmless, while also being the kind of movie that people will have trouble remembering exists by the time he makes Tommy Thanksgiving.

There is something half-satisfying and pacifying about Hubie Halloween.
