So Adam Sandler is on the big screen again, this time with Andy Sanberg in a film about a man who has a kid in junior high, finding his kid after years of not seeing each other because he is in a jam and needs to be bailed out. Truly I wasn’t expecting much from the film because Adam Sandler’s last film was so bad, I wasn’t sure he had anything more writing talent in him.
Let me say, I was pleasently surprised. The film was actually funny and entertaining there were a lot of laughs to be had. Lots of funny jokes that weren’t forced and Andy Sanberg was great in the movie. Overall the film was good, not great but much much better then the expectations I had for it.
The story wasn’t anything over the top special, but for what it was and the actors it worked and the plot flowed well with not too many moments that felt forced or out of place. The actors themselves were all decent, no one really stood out amoung the cast but there were some really funny moments from different people, Vanilla Ice being one of them that shined a few times. The settings were fun and even not overdone in some points. The jokes weren’t too recycled or forced, a lot of them were genuinely funny and enjoyable to watch. I heard the audience laughing a lot, so good sign. I laughed a lot.
The movie like all Adam Sandler’s movies had a message and that’s always been something I liked about him. If you are a Sandler fan go see the movie, its much better then Jack and Jill. If you are a comedy fan, its not too bad, much better then some of the stuff out there, but if you haven’t seen 21 Jumpstreet rent that and stay in, you will enjoy it more, and catch this on Redbox or cable in a few months.
