Since others have commented so accurately upon the unrealistic script, sight gags, below-par acting and annoying child actors there isn't much more to say.
The salaries for JGWI: Stiller: $25,000,000, Aniston: $10,000,000, Kidman: unlisted for this flick (her last dozen or so films averaged her around $10,000,000 per picture- none of which are worth mentioning)-- which leaves two questions, "what do we get for Forty-Five Million Dollars?" and, "Why isn't there a 'Minus' Rating Star available?
One positive note: We now know that Mr Sandler, in a one-on-one with Aniston, is totally unable to act, preferring to keep staring at her breasts- and Aniston, in her almost-up-to-a-two-dimensional character- fails to notice his inability to look up.
Adam Sandler comfortably wears the phrase oft used for Ben Stiller: "Not funny on any planet."
Dennis Dugan's talent appears to have peaked in 'The Waltons'.
