The Ridiculous 6 (2015)
Six people from different backgrounds find out they share the same father. They go on a mission to find the dad who never raised them. The movie is over the top and ridiculous, making fun of common stereotypes. It's a Cowboys and Indians spoof film.
Sandler plays the character of Tommy in this film.
The Do-Over (2016)
Max (Adam Sandler) fakes his own death, but he doesn't just include himself. He fakes the death of his old high school pal Charlie (David Space) as well. Him and Charlie only just reconnected. He chooses the identities of men who were wanted for criminal activities, forcing the two old friends to face some dangerous situations and try to get out of their predicament alive.
