Adam Sandler And Ben Stiller Play Brothers In Dysfunctional Family Dramedy The Meyerowitz Stories

Your life will be messed up too if your father is like the one played by Dustin Hoffman.

The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected) (NC16)

Starring Ben Stiller, Adam Sandler, Dustin Hoffman

Directed by Noah Baumbach

It was 21 years ago that Adam Sandler and Ben Stiller first appeared together in Happy Gilmore, where they were playing adversaries of sorts.

Cue to the present: The Sandman and Big Ben are reunited in this bittersweet family dramedy where their characters, again, have some animosity against each other. But there’s affection between them as well.

They, alongside House of Cards’ Elizabeth Marvel, give touching performances as dysfunctional siblings reflecting on the artistic legacy as well as the messed-up parenting skills of their grouchy father (the wonderful Dustin Hoffman), following a crisis at home. Now streaming on Netflix. (***/12)
