Not a bad film really. You’re almost forced to see movies you’re interested in right away as the marketing machine behind the titles will generally give EVERYTHING away weeks after the debut. I had thought this movie would be pretty funny and I wasn’t disappointed. Don’t expect a wild hour of Adam Sandler shtick, this movie is a departure from the Billy Madison era of his career. To my surprise it was Jack Nicholson that drove the humor behind this film. To see Adam play the straight man to Jack’s erratic behavior really was refreshing and made an otherwise predictable movie hysterical at times.
The movie did drag in a few spots and I can’t say I didn’t know the outcome a third of the way through, but I’ll probably snag a copy on DVD just for the bridge scene where Adam & Jack sing “I Feel Pretty” from West Side Story.
