The film was poorly received by critics, and disliked by Adam Sandler fans, mostly due to the depiction of a young Donnie having an underage sexual relationship with Mary, which is a crime. Sean Anders won Hall of Shame at the 2013 Alliance of Women Film Journalist. The film came in second place as worst film at the Houston Film Critics Society Awards in 2013. The film won obviously worst film at the Oklahoma Films Critics Circle Awards in 2013, and the film won four awards at the Razzie Awards in 2013, which Adam Sandler won worst actor. The film won worst screenplay. Adam Sandler, Leighton Meester, Andy Samberg, and Susan Sarandon won Worst Screen Couple. Nick Swardson and Vanilla Ice both won worst supporting actor. See more »

Sandler's made a couple of stinkers lately, but this one rocked!
And why did it rock? Because Sandler went back to his simple, old formula...giant man-child refuses to grow up! He never really impresses me all that much when he tries to get serious, but remember Billy Madison? Happy Gilmore? The same giant man-child who refuses to grow up formula works again! To all the people out there bashing this movie, pi-- off. If you're not a fan of toilet humor, then no, you're probably not going to like this movie. But if you're an Adam Sandler fan who loves his earlier stuff, this one is right up there with Billy Madison and Happy Gilmore! Hilarious! And Nick Swardson, of course, is hysterical as always! A perfect ten out of ten for me!
