In 2020, American filmmaker Steven Brill will release Hubie Halloween, a mystery comedy written by Adam Sandler and Tim Herlihy. Netflix released the film on October 7, 2020, to mixed reviews from critics, with some saying it was better than Adam Sandler’s previous comedy. Cameron Boyce, who had been cast as a co-star but tragically passed away in 2019, is honored in the film.
The comedy “Hubie Halloween” tries to get the most out of Adam Sandler’s performance as a character who screams as if his life is in danger. Another one of the Sandman’s adorable adult offspring, Hubie, has been the object of numerous practical jokes played on him by everyone in the town of Salem, particularly during the Halloween season.

Plot: Hubie Halloween
Hubie Dubois, who lives in Salem, Massachusetts, is the target of a number of pranks and the ire of various people, including police enforcement officials Steve Downey and Blake, as well as a priest named Father Dave. Dubois works at a delicatessen. When Halloween arrives, Hubie puts on his costume and begins his duties as the official Halloween Helper for the city, patrolling the neighborhood and keeping an eye out for mischief.
The day before Halloween, he meets his weird new neighbor Walter Lambert, and the neighborhood learns that his old acquaintance and fellow criminal Richie Hartman has escaped from the nearby mental facility. Both of these events take place at the same time. These two happenings coincide with one another and take place at the same moment.
The next evening, as Halloween draws closer, Hubie, in his role as Halloween Monitor, conducts an inquiry at Walter’s home because he has gotten reports of strange noises emanating from inside. These sounds have been coming from Walter’s residence. Following Downey’s visit to the authorities, A.U.U. “recruits” him to join their organization (auxiliary undercover unit). Hubie is certain that Steve is pulling his leg when he tells him that he has a job to do so that he would stop bothering Steve.
Since it is Halloween, Hubie has made the decision to observe the activities taking place at a neighboring party. However, it spoils in a short amount of time. Hubie gets tricked into going into a corn maze when he overhears people talking about a child who went missing. Mike, Hubie’s younger employee, follows him in an effort to intimidate him as much as possible. After Hubie has located Mike, he watches helplessly as Mike is drawn farther and deeper into the labyrinth, until he ultimately vanishes.
Hubie guards a drive-in theatre. Lester and Mary Hennessey, two of Hubie’s old friends, tell him something weird is happening in one of the cars (who turn out to be trick-or-treaters driven by Mr. Hennessey to throw eggs at Hubie). He escapes and goes into the woods, where Walter awaits. Walter, who thinks he’s becoming a werewolf, pursues Hubie into a haunted house at Chantal Taylor’s carnival.
Mr. and Mrs. Hennessey’s disappearance alerts Sgt. Downey. Hubie confuses a Siberian husky for Walter’s ghost. He follows the husky inside the haunted home. The Husky is Miss Taylor’s dog, Buster. Pete Landolfa comes inside to intimidate him, but he’s kidnapped in front of him. Sgt. Downey suggests Mayor Benson cancel Halloween. Hubie guesses it’s Walter, but Blake tells him Walter and Richie surrendered and that Walter’s real name is Nick Hudson. Walter returned to the institution Richie escaped from, which the prisoners dubbed the werewolf treatment facility. Downey, Benson, and Dave suspect Hubie after being tormented at school.
He rushes to a radio studio.DJ Aurora says someone other than his phone often requests songs. Violet Valentine, Sgt. Downey’s ex-wife is the prime suspect in the group. He rushes home to check on his mom after receiving a call on the burner phone he didn’t know about. Accused of torturing her son, Hubie’s mother has abducted Pete, Mike, and the Hennesseys in order to exact her vengeance by setting fire to their bodies.
The police, reporters, Nick, and Richie all show there just as he saves them, but none of them are appreciative. After Pete, Mike, and the Hennesseys acknowledge being envious of Hubie for different reasons, his mother scolds them for all they did to him. When he does the Frankenstein technique, his mother vanishes without a trace.
After a year, Hubie has tied the knot with Violet, been elected Mayor of Salem, and begun fostering youngsters who participate in Halloween costume parties dressed as people Hubie knows. He, a well-respected member of the community, arrives in town with Downey following close after in order to take part in the Halloween festivities.
