Just watched this as a rental and have to say that it was bad. I like Sandler but when he does those annoying voices it takes away from the movie right off the bat. Now I did laugh quite a bit. It was not without its funny parts. It was just more annoying than anything. It's also tough to understand when some rather uptight upper-crust people have a slovenly, drunken, loudmouth in their midst, how they find him so charming. He has no redeeming social value. There was plenty of nudity but not from the two I wanted to see something from; Eva Amurri or Leighton Meester. Tony Orlando plays a fun old pervert but he looks like he ate Dawn. The man is huge. I give it a D or 2/5 at best

I saw this on TV the other day and it was actually funny the first two thirds of the movie. Once it gets toward the end, it's just stupid and not funny.

Seeing Vanilla Ice always made me laugh, though.

It's hits all the Sandler notes: poop, pee, bewbs, jizz, old ladies with filthy mouths, sudden violence, and nauseating plot turns.

Had some laughs. Certainly better than Jack & Jill.

Although the biggest deux ex machina ending I've seen in a while.
At the beginning, he bets $20 on a fat guy to win the Boston Marathon. 8000-1 odds. You can guess what happens.
