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?

Why did I pay even $1.50 to see this movie?
13 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Okay, I'll admit it--I am not an Adam Sandler fan, and as long as he keeps churning out stupid, mindless comedies, I never will be (I didn't even like him in "Reign Over Me"). The only movie I tolerated him in was "50 First Dates," and that's only because my daughter was on a flight from Salt Lake to Anchorage in 2003 and was sitting behind some men who were talking about a movie they were working on called "50 First Kisses" (title later changed). I saw the movie (title later changed) so I could see some Alaskan scenery, only to find that the whole thing took place in Hawaii with just a tiny bit of Alaska at the end.

Sandler plays a successful Hollywood agent with spoiled kids and a gorgeous wife who is a successful clothes designer. He reunites with his old boyhood basketball-playing friends (who won a championship in 1978) 30+ years later at their coach's funeral. Afterwards they and their families spend a few days together at the late coach's summer cabin on a lake (in Essex, Massachusetts--beautiful scenery!) and try to reconnect and relive their childhood years by acting like idiots, ignoring their wives and ogling young girls (daughters of the character played by Rob Schneider) and trying to introduce their children to the joys of a 1970s childhood (no video games, iPods, cellphones).

Adam Sandler is talented but I'll stick with him in SNL, thank you very much. I challenge him to write/produce a movie that has some substance and actually encourages the audience to think--not making crude, stupid, comedies. He has the talent; he just doesn't do it. I've seen only one other Sandler movie--"Bedtime Stories." And even that was pushing it.

I know a young man named Aaron who loves Sandler and goes to every one of his movies as soon as they're released and then buys the DVD. He was always encouraging me to watch the movies, even offering to loan me his DVDs. When I tried to tell him why I didn't want to see the movies, he didn't seem to understand.

Produce something intelligent, Adam Sandler. I dare you!
