Even Adam Sandler's kids can't sit through his movies

Adam Sandler has spent an entire career dodging angry reviews from critics. Now, he's getting that same drubbing in his own home.

The Ridiculous Six actor's actual daughters have trouble making it through even 20 minutes of his biggest hits – or at least that's what Sandler himself said in a recent appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

"I'll put them on. Because they beg to see them," he revealed. "They're like, 'Please, it's not fair! Let me watch your movies. Those people always yell things at you on the street. I don't know what the heck they're talking about'.

"So I show them the movies - they demand this - and they get, every time, I'd say about 20 minutes in, and then I see them tuning out, and then I hear them. They're nervous to say it, but like, 'Can we watch something else?'"

We get it, kids - we totally get it. And given that response, Adam's chosen a suitable medium for releasing his upcoming films.

The comic is smack dab in the middle of his first four-movie deal with Netflix, and has just inked a second four-picture deal exclusively with the streaming giant. Keep in mind, Netflix will definitely let you stop watching those movies any time you want.

Adam's next Netflix project is Sandy Wexler, in which he plays a down-on-his-luck talent manager who finds success and love with a young singer (Jennifer Hudson).

Sandy Wexler will be dropping on Netflix on Friday, April 14. Remember, you can turn it off… and you don't even have to wait 20 minutes.
