In 1978, five 12-year-olds win a CYO basketball championship. Thirty years later, they gather with their families for their coach's funeral and a weekend at a house on a lake where they used to party. By now, each is a grownup with problems and challenges: Marcus is alone and drinks too much. Rob, with three daughters he rarely sees, is always deeply in love until he turns on his next ex-wife. Eric is overweight and out of work. Kurt is a househusband, henpecked by wife and mother-in-law. Lenny is a successful Hollywood agent married to a fashion designer; their kids take privilege for granted. Can the outdoors help these grownups rediscover connections or is this chaos in the making?

An early scene where the 5 male leads all sit in chairs outside the lakehouse in sunshine was actually extremely cold. External heaters were placed out of shot so the actors - who were all dressed in t-shirts and shorts - could warm themselves in between takes. See more »
During the water park scene, the body builder is seen to remove his sun glasses and toss them on the lounge chair. In the next shot, they are back on his face. In the following shot, they are back on the lounge chair where they landed when he tossed them down. See more »

I am fan of Adam Sandler and Chris Rock (comedian, not actor). I've watched all of Sandler's movies but lately his movies just aren't as funny to me. It's either cuz I'm growing up or there's a serious lack of quality control in his films.
I got the impression that the script was written in a weekend and then shot without testing the jokes.
There were LOTS of jokes but many felt forced or just went over my head. The family moments were forced and felt awkward to even watch. I cringed and felt bad for the actors.
I think the circle of friends have what it takes to make a great comedy, but I think they'll need to work harder. I know they can do better cuz there were a few Kodak moments in there - classic Sandler humor.
