Saying this is probably the best thing Adam Sandler has done in the last 10 years really isn’t saying much. I enjoyed the past films from Sandler and Barrymore. The Wedding Singer was fun and 50 First Dates was surprisingly good, but this time around it’s the same old joke. It felt more like one of Sandler’s non Barrymore movies and that’s not a good thing at all. Every time I sit down to watch his movies I always wonder how these get green lit. For some reason people still go see them, no matter how brutal and awful they are they still line up for this garbage. This time they didn’t and although it’s not as awful as his usual stuff, it’s certainly not a great film. There are some mild chuckles and at least there’s a bit of a plot unlike last years worst film ever Grown Ups 2. This one does run on way too long and from minute one we all know what’s going to happen.
I hardly recommend this film, but if you want something dull and not awful to run in the background while you clean your place… this one will work.
