Adam Sandler is looking to build on the box office success and critical acclaim of his recent basketball thriller. Uncut Gems with his latest Netflix production, Fuss. This time, Sandler plays a Philadelphia 76ers scout; when he’s looking for the uncut gems in this movie, it’s the uncharted basketball geeks he can sign for his team. But like Howard Uncut GemsSandler Fuss the character, Stanley Sugarman, is a bit of a loser. It has been working for many years, but cannot move forward. He travels the world in search of untapped talent, but what he really wants is to coach a professional team.
He thinks he finds his food stamp in Spain, where he finds an unsigned player he thinks could become an NBA star. (He’s played by Utah Jazz forward Juancho Hernangomez, so he’s definitely on the right field—er, basketball court.) But of course, as you’ll see in the trailer below, there are some complications…
Here is the official synopsis of the film:
Stanley Sugerman’s (Adam Sandler) love of basketball is unparalleled, but a travel-weary Philadelphia 76ers scout with big ambitions to become a coach is stuck on the road in search of an unknown new talent. His worldwide search leads him to Spain, where he discovers Bo Cruz (NBA player Juancho Hernangomes), an incredible streetball player with a troubled past. Stanley and Bo unite on and off the court through their passion for the game and as loving family men who want to prove they can win in basketball and in life. With the support of Stanley’s wife Teresa (Queen Latifah), can the underdogs win?
Fuss Premieres on Netflix June 8th.
