With cable, Netflix, and internet options, finding the best thing to watch during your downtime is difficult. Instead of flipping through menus all weekend and settling on nothing, turn to What to Watch This Weekend, a series in which we give you our pick for the best new show or movie available.
Anyone who saw Punch-Drunk Love knows Adam Sandler is more than silly voices and crude humor. Further proof of that hits Netflix today, as The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected) is available to stream right now. Sandler plays one of three sons, all dealing with the eccentricities of their artist father (Dustin Hoffman). There’s no punching Bob Barker. There’s no shampoo vs conditioner battle. There’s no “abbie doobie.” All you’ll see here is Sandler displaying his acting chops and stealing the show in the Noah Baumbach dark comedy. Watch it this weekend on Netflix.
