The storyline of Hubie Halloween revolves around Hubie Dubois, who is mocked by almost every citizen of Salem, Massachusetts, his hometown. Hubie, however, loves monitoring the night of Halloween as an appointee and keeps eyes on the streets so that nobody gets harmed. But, everyone thinks that it’s a mere childish job and continues to make fun of him despite doing something better not for himself but for society as a whole.
But no one is to be blamed much since Hubie does seem to be annoying at times, including to the local police station, and angers them with several phone calls. On the previous day of Halloween, Hubie comes across Walter Lambert and soon gets to hear that Richie Hartman has fled from a mental asylum who has been a friend of his in the past. Hubie becomes a victim of several tricks during his duty and runs into the forest where he comes across Walter, and the later soon gets back in the mental asylum.
Hubie ultimately, however, emerges as the rescuer and earns respect. The story ends on a happy note when after a year, Hubie has married Violet and has even become the Mayor of Salem. The film ends with Hubie riding on his bicycle and gets ready for Halloween.
The whole film is full of several tricks and sarcastic notes but not every time they are as funny as they are meant to be. Hubie, since the beginning, is portrayed as dumb, but at times, he becomes the most intelligent person who fails to go in accordance with the character. Sandler’s overacting at times also seems annoying, but let it be accepted that the movie is a nice one overall.
The movie can get dull at times, but it might last for few minutes only, and most of the film is loveable. So do give it a watch and stay tuned with us for more such reviews and news.
