With neither the anticipation of The Hateful Eight nor the veneration of The Magnificent Seven, in rides The Ridiculous 6.

The potential freedoms of a direct-to-Netflix deal seem to have been ignored by Happy Madison Productions; Ridiculous 6 feels cheaper, lazier, and all-round worse than even Hot Tub Time Machine 2.

Filled with crass stereotypes, this isn’t parody. Filled with crass dialogue, this isn’t satire. Filled with crass acting, this is ridiculous on every level except fun.

Blazing Saddles is still the genre leader; even A Million Ways To Die In The West is a recommendation by comparison.

Ridiculous doesn’t cut it – Ridiculous 6 is vacuous, puerile and asinine garbage. This is the first of a four-film deal between Sandler and Sarandos – you have been warned.

About The Author


Moonlighting as a reviewer and editor, I'm more at home with recent films than golden oldies and enjoy appreciating the technical achievements as much as the escapism of the movies. Happy to try any film once, if only for fifteen minutes. I also volunteer with MediCinema - a charity which every film fan should look into if they don't already know about.
