You won't stop laughing, but sometimes you are laughing at how stupid the movie is!
28 June 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Even my Grandma liked it. This movie is hilarious. Adam Sandler is finally back on track, in my opinion. The movie involved some of the stupidest comedy I have seen in years.

The plot of the movie is actually quite descent, and it is a spiral of fun. You will laugh at the movie, and laugh with the movie. You will laugh at the movie because it can get very silly.

Adam Sandler and Andy Samberg have AMAZING chemistry, and I think we are expecting more from the duo, well, hopefully! Susan Sarandon and Vanilla Ice are in the movie, yeah it's kind of weird, but hey, its funny!

The movie is filled with R rated stuff, and I am so glad I went to see the movie. 8/10 = A-
