This movie makes me laugh every single time I watch it. I am very much into the "Slapstick" type of comedy and this movie fits it like a glove. I Have always loved Adam Sandler movies because you always know you will be entertained. I can honestly say that there wasn't a point where I was watching this movie when I didn't laugh. If you love comedy WATCH THIS MOVIE you will not be disappointed. I really don't get why this movie has such a low rating. if you are looking for movies with deeper meanings and mind-blowing plots then by all means find a different movie.
If you want to sit back, relax and laugh until you physically cant anymore then you've found your movie. Enjoy ;)
