Adam Sandler's 'Murder Mystery' Is the Most Popular Netflix Release of 2019
Adam Sandler has spent the tail end of the 2010s winning everyone back. There was the guy that dedicated a full year to his films, his fantastic standup special, his return to Saturday Night Live and his buzzy performance in Uncut Gems. As if that weren't enough, he also starred in the most-watched Netflix release of 2019.

Directed by Workaholics's Kyle Newachuk, the delightfully mediocre Murder Mystery arrived on Netflix earlier this year and saw the Sand-man once again star alongside Jennifer Aniston. Despite mixed reviews, it's the most popular thing released on Netflix in 2019.

Yes, Murder Mystery beat out all of the other TV shows, standup specials, documentaries and original movies. In a new batch of lists released by Netflix, we also get to learn the other most popular releases of the year.
