User Reviews

I really don't get the hate ! Lots of awesome Cameos.
15 April 2017 | by Cinema_LoveSee all my reviews

Sure, this film is not mean to become a classic. But it's fun for what it is. And it's based on the true story ! I did a few search and it's about real-life talent manager, Sandy Wernick. It is a close friend of Adam Sandler because he work with him on Happy Gilmore, Bulletproof and Wedding Singer... among my top 5 of Sandler's films with Big Daddy and That's my boy. He work as an executive consultant on the popular shows ''Larry Sanders'' and ''ALF''. He also produce the likes of Dana Carvey, most underrated comedian ever.

The way Adam Sandler portray the guy is an homage to him as he work a couple of times with him, not just in 3 movies but after also, and he is doing a good job. The cameos are the best part. And if you watch it with your kids, they may like it as well, as their's not F word and sexual matter. It is a good family movie with a funny stupid guy that people don't trust but they seems to have pity and then work with him and see he is not a bad person at all...

feels like a sarcastic movie at times, and serious at others, may be the reason some did not like it. I suggest you watch it with an open mind maybe on an afternoon. It is not bad.


PS: The forums are closed for this very reason, you watch 10 minutes of a film and b**tch on forums after that, when you will have a real opinion, the forums may be back... maybe not in this life !
