Thirty years after graduating from high school, five former basketball teammates gather at the lake house where they celebrated their biggest victory to mourn the passing of their late coach. Over the course of the Fourth of July weekend, the five friends realize that just because they've all grown up and started families doesn't mean that they've lost that old spark. Adulthood is what you make of it, and no one at the lake house is eager to be the grown-up of the gang. Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, Kevin James, David Spade, and Rob Schneider star in a film written by Sandler and Fred Wolf, and directed by Dennis Dugan (I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry, You Don't Mess with the Zohan). Maria Bello, Salma Hayek, and Maya Rudolph co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
Although the movie got some bad reviews, I actaully enjoyed it. The basic idea I came away with, is that sometimes in life we lose touch of what is really important in life IE: family, relationships and friendships. Lots of stale humor but it was down to earth and believable. Relax, don't be too skeptical and enjoy :)
I was skeptical going into this movie, but left having really enjoed it. The movie seemed to less scripted and more improv, which made the it even more funny. It really seemed like this was just five guys in a cabin ribbing each other. I would definitely suggest this movie.
I like all these SNL alums, but the movie surpassed my expectations. Usually half of the funny parts are in the trailers. But in this movie, almost the entire movie was ROFL funny. Our 10 year old liked it as well...while their were a couple of scenes that were borderline inappropriate for her.
No, its not going to win any Oscars, but a great film to take a friend, date, or family for a good time.
