HUBIE HALLOWEEN (Netflix Release USA 2020)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.9|5.0 Starsììì

Hubie Halloween—cute, interesting concept—accesses the talents of an all-star cast to execute a welcome comedy based on Halloween.   One might wish for a few less scenes of  Adam Sandler's scared face, but the movie is a good watch overall and a good family Halloween special.

Buy a ticket
? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. While it is not an ‘I HAVE to see this movie,’ this  Halloween TV Special works as one of the better Halloween films released and readily accesses that unique Adam Sandler humor that liberally sprinkles itself to include the human element while generously sending out nice messages about the importance of community, fairness, and kindness without preaching and without 'talking down' to its audience.
