The partnership between Adam Sandler and Netflix has been fruitful up to this point, as nearly every movie they’ve released together has been a great streaming performer. Murder Mystery, starring Sandler and Jennifer Aniston, is one of the greatest Netflix Originals ever. Even older Sandman movies perform well when added to the Netflix lineup. That’s why it shouldn’t come as a surprise to learn that Sandler’s latest film immediately hit the Netflix charts.
Febrile activity, a basketball movie starring Sandler as a longtime NBA scout, was released on Netflix on Wednesday, riding the wave of critical acclaim. It only took a day for the film to become the most requested of the entire streaming service.
Thursday’s edition of Netflix’s Top 10 Movies list shows Febrile activity as the number one movie on the roster, beating the likes of Interceptor And The Incredible Spider-Manwhich held the top two positions for almost a week.
