Did Murder Mystery pull in millions because Adam Sandler is looking fine?

Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston’s new Netflix film Murder Mystery has done amazingly well – a record-breaking 73 million households watched the movie in the first month of its release.

Now it’s probably because of the stellar cast, the great writing and the engaging story-line, but we think it’s for another reason:

Adam Sandler is looking hot.

Hear us out. The 52-year-old jester scrubs up rather nicely in the comedy mystery, what with his black tuxedo and his aviator sunglasses and that moustache.


He’s bringing some dad realness to Netflix and viewers find it oddly alluring.

A Twitter user wrote, ‘I may be alone on this but does anyone else find @AdamSandlerawkwardly hot?’

Another added: ‘Adam sandler is kind of hot if u think ab it’ whilst a third said: ‘Adam Sandler will always be sexy to me.’

Sandler acts alongside Jennifer Aniston, and they play married couple Nick (police officer) and Audrey (hairdresser) Spitz, who travel to Europe in lieu of marriage counselling and end up being framed for the murder of an elderly billionaire.

In the past Netflix has kept mum about revealing its show figures, but the streaming service has been more open with them as of late.

According to reports, 30,869,863 accounts watched Murder Mystery in its first three days, giving it the biggest opening weekend ever for a Netflix film, with over 13 million of those accounts in Canada, and almost 17.5 million accounts worldwide.

A Netflix spokesperson confirmed that the statistics, which had first been shared on Twitter by an account called Netflix Is A Joke, is accurate to Variety.

Every so often, the company lets slip a few figures based on new releases, such as Stranger Things season 3, when it revealed that within four days of its launch on July 4, the show had been viewed by 40.7 million accounts.

Murder Mystery’s runaway success may have something to do with the case that Adam and Jennifer together are rom-com gold.

They also starred together in the 2011 film Just Go With It, and though the film tanked their chemistry was on point – which may be because the pair have known each other for eons.

The former friends star revealed that they first met at Jerry’s Deli, a famous restaurant in Los Angeles in the 1990s.

Murder Mystery is on Netflix now.
