Quotes

[first lines]
Charlie: [narrating] Reunions are strange. They bring up a lot of feelings about your past. Were you a jock? A pothead? A Drama Club kid? A loser? Did you get the girl? Or did she ever even notice you? Who did you want to be, and who did you actually become?
Max: [suddenly putting an arm on his shoulder] Damn, Charlie. You still hung up on that skank?

Fun and Entertaining, Enough anyways.
31 May 2016 | by k_tombSee all my reviews

It was quite fun and entertaining, and the first half hour was close to fantastic. Then it kinda went down a few notches, started relying on crude humor and vulgar stuff too much. Then it became not even believable at all. Some humor from silly stuff is okay, but this became just a bit too silly. If Sandler would stick to a bit of drama and comedy that seemed more realistic he could hit one out of the park.

As it is, there are glimpses of great, but then equaled out by silly vulgar stuff, that seems more for 13 year old's. Maybe he is not able to make great movies. Well, not great, not horrible, funny at times at least
