Are you ready for the comedy event of the year? Don’t miss Adam Sandler’s daughters in action

Adam Sandler’s most recent comedy on Netflix is a delightful family affair. While fans of the renowned comedian are accustomed to seeing his wife, Jackie Sandler, make brief appearances in his movies, the spotlight in the upcoming film, “You Are So Not Invited to My Bat Mitzvah,” belongs to his daughters, Sunny and Sadie.

This new movie revolves around the lives of lifelong best friends, Stacy (portrayed by Sunny) and Lydia (played by Samantha Lorraine), two determined 12-year-olds who aim to organize unforgettable bat mitzvahs, marking their transition into adulthood. However, their plans and friendship are put to the test when Andy Goldfarb (portrayed by Dylan Hoffman), the popular boy at school, comes between them. Can their bond and meticulously arranged parties withstand the drama that unfolds in Hebrew school? In this film, Adam Sandler takes on the role of his real-life daughters’ father, offering both comedic and wise paternal advice amidst the chaos and teenage turmoil.

Sammi Cohen, the director of the movie, emphasizes that although the story revolves around bat mitzvahs, which are unique Jewish coming-of-age ceremonies, the film ultimately delves into universally relatable themes of friendship and personal growth. Cohen states, “The beauty of being Jewish lies in gathering with loved ones, indulging in food, dancing, and singing. However, this experience transcends cultural boundaries. It’s not merely a film about Jewish traditions; it’s a film about humanity. It’s a heartwarming tale that doesn’t shy away from the challenges of growing up. Coming-of-age films resonate with us because they capture a universal experience that we all undergo, not just once but repeatedly. Our diverse cultural backgrounds, religions, and identities may shape our unique experiences, but at the core, we share so much in common.”

This is precisely why “YASNITMB” focuses on the friendship between Stacy and Lydia. Cohen explains, “It’s interesting how society often places great emphasis on romantic relationships. I believe that platonic love between friends is just as significant as romantic love. While you may date numerous individuals, your best friends remain by your side through it all. Friends are our chosen family. This entire experience, both on and off the screen, revolves around the power of friendship.”

Now, let’s delve into the details of the movie.

Cast of “You Are So Not Invited to My Bat Mitzvah” Alongside Sunny, Sadie, Lorraine, and Hoffman, the movie features an ensemble cast of teenage actors. Millie Thorpe and Dylan Dash portray Stacy’s other best friends, Niki and Tara, respectively. Dean Scott Vazquez takes on the role of Mateo, while Miya Cech and Ivory Baker play the popular girls at school, Kym and Megan.

Cohen praises Sunny and Sadie, acknowledging that they bring an unparalleled authenticity to the film. It seems that the girls have inherited their father’s creative talents. Cohen remarks, “We would fine-tune the dialogue to ensure it truly reflects how kids speak today. Both Sunny and Sadie possess remarkable gifts and distinctive strengths. These characters were tailor-made for them. It was a joy to watch them showcase their comedic prowess on screen.”

On the adult side, Idina Menzel joins the cast as Bree, Stacy’s mother, while Adam’s real-life wife, Jackie, portrays Gabi, Lydia’s mother. The principal adult cast also includes Sarah Sherman from “Saturday Night Live” as Rabbi Rebecca, Ido Mosseri as the highly sought-after DJ Schmuley, and Luis Guzmán as Eli Katz.

According to Cohen, the cast quickly bonded and formed a family-like connection. She shares, “We had a period of rehearsal before filming, during which I got to spend time with the kids. We hung out, had conversations about personal pronouns, and even made TikToks together.” She adds, “These bonds formed instantly, and we developed inside jokes. It was a genuinely organic way to cultivate authentic relationships. When you watch the movie, it’s evident that these kids genuinely care for each other.”

Release Date of “You Are So Not Invited to My Bat Mitzvah” “You Are So Not Invited to My Bat Mitzvah” will be available for streaming on Netflix starting August 25.
