Waste of Money
17 June 2012 | by joelguytSee all my reviews

A waste of money it was; not necessarily my money, but a waste of the large budget of this film. In no way do I think this film gave any value for its budget.

I found the film very shallow, and it disappointed in terms of entertainment. It was unnecessarily crude and the sex "jokes" were more than abundant. Of course, I expected such humour after watching the film's trailer, but it miraculously managed to turn out worse than the already low expectations.

The "jokes" were very childish and prompted me to smile, at most. The only parts I laughed at were people falling over/into things; the sense of humour really wasn't worth it.

The acting does not deserve credit. Actually, James Caan stood out as the only proper actor, in my opinion.

I really liked many previous comedies that starred Adam Sandler, and this film was real rubbish compared to any of them.
