Adam Sandler plays Sunny and Sadie’s father in You Are So Not Invited to My Bat Mitzvah, which shouldn’t be too hard given he is their father in real life. Adam’s character, Danny, is described as “loving and helpful – if a little embarrassing”.

Just some of Adam Sandler’s many, many movies include The Waterboy, Happy Gilmore and 50 First Dates.

Sadie Sandler – Ronnie Friedman

Stacy’s older sister, Ronnie, is played by Sunny’s real life older sister Sadie. Ronnie is “supportive, if long-suffering and always ready with a barb”. Sadie has appeared in a string of her father’s movies including Just Go with it, Blended and Hubie Halloween.

“Sadie has this natural ability to be effortlessly hilarious,” Sammi Cohen said. “Her dry humour and grounded delivery comes from a very real place. She’s obviously a natural when it comes to comedic timing and delivery, but she’s also a really strong dramatic actor.”

Sunny Sandler – Stacy Friedman

Idina Menzel is Bree Friedman in the You Are So Not Invited to My Bat Mitzvah cast. Bree is Stacy’s mother who has “no time for nonsense” from her daughters or her husband.

“Adam loved working with her [on Uncut Gems], and we all agreed that she was a natural fit for the Friedman family and for the film as a whole,” director Sammi Cohen told Tudum. “I joke that this is the happy side of their on-screen marriage.”

If Idina’s face doesn’t instantly remind you of who she is, her voice sure will. Idina is the voice of Queen Elsa in the Frozen movies. Her other roles include Maureen in Rent, Nancy Tremaine Enchanted and Vivian in Amazon’s Cinderella remake.
