Coming today, August 25th, on Netflix (also seen on Sky Glass, Sky Q and via app on Now Smart Stick), You are not invited to my bat mitzvah, a new youth comedy based on the novel of the same name by Fiona Rosenbloom. Also in the cast is Adam Sandler – this time as a troubled father – accompanied by Idina Menzel. Directed by Sammy Cohen, the story stars Stacey (Sunny Sandler), desperate to have the best Bat Mitzvah in the world and would love to share that special moment with her best friend Lydia (Samantha Lorraine). But because of the boy, they end up leaving.
So everything revolves around the Bat Mitzvah, the traditional Jewish ceremony that represents the attainment of religious maturity and responsibility. Stacey has already thought of everything and would even like to invite Olivia Rodrigo or Dua Lipa to her party, which in her dreams should take place strictly on a private yacht. To ruin her plans, an unsuspecting best friend takes care of it, kissing the boy Stacey likes, setting off a chain of events that will cause them to drift further and further apart. But at what cost?
