'The Meyerowitz Stories' Trailer: Adam Sandler & Ben Stiller Are Dysfunctional Siblings

It's funny that whenever Adam Sandler makes a movie that isn't outwardly grotesque like Ridiculous 6, we trip over ourselves to sing his praises. "He can be so talented when he wants to!" Yeah, okay...so why doesn't he want to? I find myself beginning every post about Sandler's dramatic efforts by reminding everyone how good he was in Punch Drunk Love, when that has absolutely no bearing on what he's doing right now. And what Sandler has right now is Noah Baumbach's The Meyerowitz Stories, which has been earning strong reviews since Cannes, including some strong buzz for Sandler's performance.

The latest trailer follows up on the previously-released teaser, but it doesn't reveal much more. The film finds Sandler surrounded by Ben Stiller, Dustin Hoffman, Emma Thompson, Grace Van Patten, Adam Driver, Candice Bergen, Judd Hirsch, Elizabeth Marvel, and Rebecca Miller, in a story that tracks the dysfunctional Meyerowitz clan. Here's the synopsis:

From writer/director Noah Baumbach, The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected) is the emotional and comic intergenerational tale of adult siblings (Adam Sandler, Ben Stiller, and Elizabeth Marvel) contending with the long shadow their strong-willed father (Dustin Hoffman) has cast over their lives.

The Meyerowitz Stories hits theaters and Netflix on October 13th.
