Summary:

Five childhood buddies reunite for a summer of fun in this all-star comedy.

Back in 1978, Lenny, Kurt, Eric, Rob and Marcus were best friends. Thirty years later, the guys reunite to mark the passing of their childhood basketball coach. With wives and kids in tow, they spend the Fourth of July weekend together at the lake house where they celebrated their championship years earlier. Ladies' man Marcus (David Spade) wastes no time in ribbing Lenny (Adam Sandler) about his weight, while Lenny's fashion designer wife Roxanne (Salma Hayek) mistakes Gloria (Joyce Van Patten), the somewhat older wife of Rob (Rob Schneider), for his mother! And speaking of mothers, Eric (Kevin James) is married to Sally (Maria Bello), who still breastfeeds their four-year-old son, much to the horror of househusband Kurt (Chris Rock) and Roxanne. Clearly, the guys have a lot of catching up to do, reliving their high spirited youth and trying to forget they're grown-ups...

Review:

There is nothing wrong about this film... there is nothing right about it either. It's just another Adam Sandler feel-good movie, and if you like these (I certainly do), you will like this movie too. If you hate them for a lack of plot or the shallowness of the jokes, you won't. I just know I laughed a numerous amount of times, and I felt good after having watched it.

And no, I'm not a stupid guy; I like a good plot, good acting, directing and well-thought-of puns as does the next guy. But there are times when you feel like watching a complicated drama, and there are times when you feel like watching a no-brainer.

This is definitely a no-brainer, which will make you feel good from time to time. That's why Adam Sandler makes these movies, and that's why they keep doing so well.

They will make you feel good :)
