Howard dreams of a big score, which arrives by messenger from Ethiopia: a gleaming chunk of opal-encrusted rock which he hopes to auction off for a fortune. (It’s ‘real old-school Middle-earth shit’, he tells the hypnotized NBA star Kevin Garnett, playing himself with self-deprecating charm.)
The film stars Adam Sandler, Kevin Garnett, Lakeith Stanfield, Julia Fox, Mike Francesa, Idina Menzel, and Eric Bogosian.
