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?

Its Adam Sandler at his best.
8 July 2016 | by killferdSee all my reviews

Adam sandler....... you either love his work or hate it.

For me it is a relief like on mid summers afternoon; which is provided by a cool beer. Life in itself is too short, and this movie delivers that message with a punch. you looking for shakes'perian drama, or Quentin Tarantino's mystical direction, you are missing the message. It's Adam Sandler at his best after the Growns up's.

It's classic in terms of his way of doing movies. i will not spoil it with details but only a suggestion watch when you are burned out and have some time with a cold one.

Its the most irrational, fun, adult entertainment to bring your spirits up.

Peace out brothers.
