Adam Sandler has said he chooses movies based on where he’d like to vacation—Blended took him to South Africa, 50 First Dates to Hawaii. But his latest movie, the dark Men, Women & Children, looks like anything but a vacation.
The film, directed by Up in the Air filmmaker Jason Reitman, centers around a group of individuals who gravitate toward the internet and all it offers, resulting in isolation and sadness. Sandler’s character browses escort websites when he’s not spending time with his also-lonely partner, played by Rosemarie DeWitt. Ansel Elgort, Judy Greer, Dean Norris, and Jennifer Garner also star.
Men, Women & Children arrives in theaters Oct. 17.
