The A.V. Club
Maybe it’s a question of drastically lowered expectations finally working to Sandler’s advantage, but Sandy Wexler is disarming in its charms.
There is something so authentic in this film that once you get past the annoying voice and some of the dreadfully unfunny side characters, it is disarmingly sweet and even occasionally clever.
Consequence of Sound
Of course, there are still product placements, and lowbrow jokes, but there’s an empathetic streak in Sandy Wexler. And that’s something we haven’t seen from Sandler in a long time.
It’s awful, and yet it’s almost objectively Sandler’s best movie since “Funny People.”
This newest Sandler vehicle is inspired and warm-hearted where his other recent movies are lazy and soulless. Does that make it a winning success? Hell no, but it’s good to see Sandler put his heart into his work again.
While the humor mostly misfires, there’s a certain pleasure to be had simply from spotting the celebrity cameos in Sandy Wexler.
The Hollywood Reporter
Sandler's drool-accompanied ogling of the female form is now near Woody Allen levels of ick.

We Got This Covered
Perhaps the most egregious aspect of Sandy Wexler isn’t its bland or annoying characters, its cookie-cutter story or even the same cheap physical comedy Sandler had become known for. No, the biggest problem very well may be its 1990s setting.
