After moving his family back to his hometown to be with his friends and their kids, Lenny finds out that between old bullies, new bullies, schizo bus drivers, drunk cops on skis, and 400 costumed party crashers sometimes crazy follows you.
A new theme park is built on the original site of Jurassic Park. Everything is going well until the park's newest attraction--a genetically modified giant stealth killing machine--escapes containment and goes on a killing spree.

Armed with a super-suit with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, cat burglar Scott Lang must embrace his inner hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.
Sam Brenner, Will Cooper, Ludlow Lamonsoff, and Eddie "The Fire Blaster" Plant all played classic arcade video games as teenagers. But now they have to use their skills to try to save the world from aliens. The aliens watched video feeds that they thought was a declaration of war. So they send down the classic arcade games to destroy earth. They also get help from a military specialist. They have three lives and if all three get used then earth will be destroyed, and every time they lose a live the aliens take someone's life. Who will win, us or the aliens? It's an all-out battle to save our planet and everyone on it. Written by
Dan Aykroyd co-founded and co-owns Crystal Head Vodka, which the two main characters drink in the pub after the Centipede battle in England. See more »
When they are in the bar celebrating their victory over Centipede, Violet states she was the drinking champion at West Point. Violet is, in fact, an Army, not Air Force, Lieutenant Colonel (her shirt is white, not the light blue of an Air Force uniform). In any case, cadets graduating from any of the service academies are provided the option to be commissioned into any service. Thus a West Point graduate could be commissioned into the Navy, Marine Corps, or Air Force if he (she) so chose, and that does happen from time to time. See more »

Easily one of Adam Sandler's best films in recent years
From the mid-90's to early 2000's, Adam Sandler was a much praised comedian with making hit comedies like Happy Gilmore, Billy Madison, The Wedding Singer, Big Daddy, and 50 First Dates, but now he is liked by audiences and hated by critics for making negatively reviewed films under his Happy Madison production company like this film, Blended, Grown Ups, and most infamously Jack and Jill. Recently he has only one praised performance and that is as Dracula in Sony Pictures Animation's 2012 animated comedy, Hotel Transylvania. Now Sandler and Chris Columbus (Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone) team up to make Pixels, a new action comedy where aliens send real life video games like Pac-Man, Centipede, Donkey Kong, and many more. Now, President Will Cooper (played by Kevin James of Paul Blart: Mall Cop), assembles a team of arcade champions to fight off the games the aliens are projecting down. The team consists of Sam Brenner (played by Sandler), Ludlow Lamonsoff (played by Josh Gad of Frozen), and Eddie Plant (played by Peter Dinklage of Elf) to stop the aliens before its game over. Pixels is a great film with an engaging story, great visuals, funny humor, and classic nostalgia galore!
