Adam Sandler : Adam Sandler and Bill Burr star as talking lizards in "Leo" for Netflix

Adam Sandler and Bill Burr star as talking lizards in "Leo" for Netflix



Jaded 74-year-old lizard Leo (Sandler) has been stuck in the same Florida classroom for decades with his terrarium-mate turtle (Bill Burr). When he learns he only has one year left to live, he plans to escape to experience life on the outside but instead gets caught up in the problems of his anxious students — including an impossibly mean substitute teacher. It ends up being the strangest but most rewarding bucket list ever…

Leo comes to Netflix on November 21.

I watched this yesterday. I thought Adam Sandler did a good job voicing the title lizard. I'm not sure why this is a musical though or if it really needed to be, but it has enough cute moments and a few laughs to make it worthwhile. Some of the songs are pretty good, but others don't feel genuine to the characters and story. Storywise, not everything works. The overprotective drone storyline doesn't really fit and the substitute teacher's arc isn't completely effective or believable. At times, it feels like the film doesn't quite know what it wants to be or who it is aimed at, but it was entertaining enough to keep me amused. And I can't quite decide if the design of the kindergarteners was hilarious or disturbing (or both), but those kindergarteners certainly are…something. 7/10.
