Storyline

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?

Trivia

Originally, Adam Sandler wrote and was set to release this movie in the mid-1990s with actor Chris Farley in the role now played by Kevin James. However, Farley's tragic passing in 1997 halted production plans and the film was shelved for more than a decade. See more »

Goofs

At the 1978 basketball game, the scoreboard says 30-31. Later in the movie, Dickie says Lenny's foot was on the line and shouldn't have counted. They would have won the game either way. See more »

Quotes

Deanne McKenzie: Since when did you learn to speak Chinese?
Kurt McKenzie: Just a little something I picked up watching a Chinese cooking show.
Deanne McKenzie: That's great. Maybe you should focus a little less on the talking, and a little more of the cooking.
Mama Ronzoni: [laughs] You got told.
Kurt McKenzie: You got toe.

Lacked quality control
30 June 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

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.
