Hubie Halloween is a 2020 American Halloween comedy-horror film directed by Steven Brill, written by Adam Sandler and Tim Herlihy, and starring an ensemble cast consisting of Sandler, Kevin James, Julie Bowen, Ray Liotta, Rob Schneider, June Squibb, Kenan Thompson, Shaquille O’Neal, Steve Buscemi, Maya Rudolph, Tim Meadows, Karan Brar, Paris Berelc, Noah Schnapp, China Anne McClain, and Michael Chiklis. The film follows a Halloween-loving delicatessen worker who must save the town of Salem, Massachusetts, from a kidnapper.
Hubie Dubois is a delicatessen employee in Salem, Massachusetts who is ridiculed by almost the entire city, and is the butt of many practical jokes while his antics have annoyed police sergeant Steve Downey and Father Dave. Hubie spends his time during Halloween monitoring the city as the official Halloween Helper.
The day before Halloween, Hubie meets his strange new neighbor Walter Lambert, and news spreads around town about Richie Hartman, a convict who has absconded from a local mental institution.
The next day is Halloween; Hubie is working as Halloween Monitor and investigates Walter’s home after reports of strange noises. Having reported this to the police, he is “recruited” by Downey as an “AUU” (auxiliary undercover unit). Hubie believes this assignment is genuine, although Steve hopes it will deter Hubie from bothering him.
Hubie goes to a local Halloween party to monitor the activities. However, it soon turns sour. Hubie is tricked into going into a corn maze following reports about a lost child. Hubie’s young co-worker Mike follows hoping to scare Hubie. Hubie finds Mike and sees him getting pulled into the maze and then disappearing.
Hubie moves his attention to monitoring at a drive-in cinema. Hubie’s old classmates Lester and Mary Hennessey scare Hubie after false reports of suspicious activity in one of the cars at the drive-in (who turn out to be trick-or-treaters driven by Mr. Hennessey to throw eggs at Hubie). He flees into the woods and finds Walter. Walter thinks he is turning into a werewolf and chases Hubie to a haunted house in a fun fair.
Mr. and Mrs. Hennessey are kidnapped and Sgt. Downey is alerted. At the haunted house, Hubie sees a husky, thinking it is Walter in his final form. The husky then runs into the haunted house and Hubie chases it inside. It is eventually shown that the husky is Miss Chantal Taylor’s pet dog, Buster. Pete Landolfa goes in to scare Hubie but is kidnapped in front of him. Sgt. Downey arrives and suggests to Mayor Benson that they cancel Halloween. Hubie thinks it is Walter, but then Sgt. Blake calls that Walter is at the police station with Richie who had turned themselves in, who also reveals that Walter’s real name is Nick Hudson. Richie had escaped, bringing Walter back to the mental institution which they refer to as the werewolf treatment center. Downey, Benson, and Dave agree that Hubie is the kidnapper, thinking he is getting revenge on his bullies. He runs away and goes to a radio station.
DJ Aurora tells Hubie that someone calls a lot more than him always requesting a song for Hubie. They all think Sgt. Downey’s ex-wife Violet Valentine is the caller. The burner phone that was planted when called is revealed to be in Hubie’s house and he races there, hoping his mother is okay. It is revealed that Hubie’s mother kidnapped Pete, Mike, and the Hennesseys as revenge for tormenting Hubie and plans to burn them alive. He rescues them just as the police, Nick, and Richie arrive. His mother then scolds Pete, Mike, and the Hennesseys for all the things they did to Hubie and they also admitted that they were jealous of him. Hubie’s mother suddenly disappears upon using the Frankenstein trick.
One year later, Hubie is married to Violet, is the new Mayor of Salem, and his new foster kids are going trick or treating dressed like people he knows. Having earned respect from the locals, Hubie goes into town on his bicycle with Downey escorting him and prepares for the Halloween festivities.
