Adam Sandler and Chris Rock Butt Heads Over Their Kids’ Wedding in ‘The Week Of’ Official Trailer
Netflix comedy, featuring Ronnie “The Limo Driver” Mund as Pallbearer No. 5, debuts April 27February 27, 2018
Adam Sandler and Chris Rock take two very different approaches to their kids’ upcoming nuptials in the official trailer for their Netflix comedy “The Week Of.”
Released Tuesday, the latest look at the film (above) shows Adam as a proud, middle-class father of the bride constantly butting heads with Chris, a wealthy doctor and the father of the groom. Whereas Adam is determined to pay for his daughter’s wedding, even when it means holding the reception at a rundown motel, Chris believes the families should spare no expense, even if that means him stepping on toes.
Shenanigans inevitably ensue as the two families attempt to come together, whether it’s Adam weeping during a photo shoot, Chris taking a phone call in the middle of surgery, or co-star Steve Buscemi busting out an oversized chocolate bar.
As Stern Show fans will remember, it was during Adam’s 2017 sit-down with Howard that he first revealed the plot to “The Week Of,” the fourth film in his eight-picture Netflix deal. “My daughter’s going to marry Chris Rock’s son,” he told Howard, adding that the Robert Smigel-directed film would explore “the week of the wedding and what families do and how crazy it gets.” Listen to the discussion below:
The Stern Show connections don’t end there. Ronnie “the Limo Driver” Mund was cast to play “Pallbearer No. 5” in “The Week Of,” leading to the Stern Show staffer leaving work early to shoot his extended cameo. Fellow show staffer Shuli Egar followed Ronnie around on set that day and even spoke to Sandler, Smigel, and producer Allen Covert about Mr. Mund’s involvement in the production. Take a listen (below).
“The Week Of,” co-starring Rachel Dratch, Allison Strong, Roland Buck III, and Noah Robbins hits Netflix on April 27. Watch the official trailer (above).
