Don't get me wrong; The Week Of isn't great; but it most certainly isn't as bad as these other reviews. Please don't go into this film expecting to see a masterclass in directing and acting with an incredibly gripping storyline. As you're not going to get that. It's a comedy and it serves its job as that.... I genuinely laughed out loud at some of the jokes in this movie (which is odd for an Adam Sandler movie). Also, don't be fooled by its *lack of* cast, Sandler, Rock and Buscemi are the only names I'd heard of going into this, but after watching the film, I realised that there is some fantastic talent here. For example Allison Strong puts in a brilliant performance for the most of it (apart from the crying scenes), which was served alongside an array of talent from other young actors.

Overall I thought this film did exactly what it said on the tin, it provided laughs, a good time (no alcohol required) and a nice fuzzy feeling after watching it, despite the cringe-worthy Sandler moments which occasionally occurred. So I'd 100% recommend The Week Of to any comedy fan, or anyone who just generally wants something to watch that'll make them feel good inside or to kill time. It's not great, but not as bad as the reviews are saying. Very glad I watched this, fully recommend.
