Adam Sandler’s ‘Hubie Halloween’ Rated PG-13 Following Pick-Up Shots

Adam Sandler’s new Netflix comedy Hubie Halloween has officially been rated PG-13 following a day of filming pick-ups last month.

The film wrapped principal photography in August 2019 in and around Salem, Massachusetts, but a small production team all got COVID-19 tests and quarantined just before shooting a day of pick-ups in Los Angeles on July 11, according to THR. The pick-up scenes reportedly centered on co-star Julie Bowen’s character.

We’ve also learned that the comedy has been rated PG-13 by the MPAA for “crude and suggestive content, language, and brief teen partying.”

In addition to Sandler and Bowen, the all-star cast also includes Kevin James, Rob Schneider, Maya Rudolph, Ray Liotta, Michael Chiklis, Kenan Thompson, Steve Buscemi, China Anne McClain, Paris Berelc, Tim Meadows, Colin Quinn, June Squibb, Shaquille O’Neal, Karan Brar, Noah Schnapp (Stranger Things), Mikey Day, Melissa Villaseñor, Kym Whitley, Lavell Crawford, Betsy Sodaro, George Wallace, and Blake Clark.

The synopsis: Good-natured but eccentric community volunteer Hubie Dubois (Sandler) finds himself at the center of a real murder case on Halloween night. Despite his devotion to his hometown of Salem, Massachusetts (and its legendary Halloween celebration), Hubie is a figure of mockery for kids and adults alike. But this year, something really is going bump in the night, and it’s up to Hubie to save Halloween.

Steve Brill (Little NickyMr. DeedsThe Do-Over, Sandy Wexler) directed from a screenplay by Sandler and Tim Herlihy for the Happy Madison and Netflix.

Netflix is expected to premiere Hubie Halloween this October.
