Trivia

Many script rewrites were necessary throughout filming this feature as attempts to match the quality of other recent Sandler films. Similar treatments have been done in Sandler's previous Netflix movies, along with Pixels, That's My Boy, Grown Ups, Grown Ups 2, etc. The original script had planned to feature a few comedy moments to improve the viewing experience and did not enforce any silly voices upon the main cast of characters.

Goofs

At 47:51, Sandy (Adam Sandler) is driving with Kevin (Colin Quinn). Sandy asks Kevin where he wants to eat. "We going to Jerry's or do you want to go to Carney's?" Well, Sandy would have to make a very fast U-Turn because they passed Carney's a few second before Sandy asked asked that very question. See more »

Crazy Credits

After the first part of the end credits, we get one more wedding testimonial from Mike Judge (playing himself). While the second part of the end credits roll, we hear a prank call that Sandy receives. It's Judge doing the voices of Beavis and Butt-Head (1993). After a few minutes, we see Adam Sandler and Judge recording the conversation. See more »

A different performance would have helped
16 April 2017 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

I probably wouldn't have watched this if it was in the movie theater, but Netflix has been the right move for Sandler. I would have like this one much more if he played his role just a tad bit more normal. He is a weird/strange guy with good intentions. I get it, but it gets annoying sometimes. The movie around him is OK. I'll even admit that I laughed at two or three jokes, but neither of them were from Sandler himself. The big problem is the main character. The weird voice isn't funny to me. I wish he would have given a more grounded performance. Sure he can still play it with some comedy, but just loose the voice and the weird behavior. With that fixed this movie could have been alright.

The strongest positive I'll give it is the supporting cast. They do good job. Kevin James is the best he's been in a long time. He really surprised me. He was one of the best characters. There are so many celebrity appearances to keep you entertained that you just might forget about the actual story. So that's something. It's probably a fun and relaxed time to work with Sandler and the Happy Madison crew. So, I'm not gonna be hard on them. I get that they are all friends who get together to have a good time and film funny stuff. It might be more fun to them, but not so much for me since I'm not really in on the jokes.

If you made it through the whole movie, then I congratulate you. There were times when I was tempted to fast forward or turn it off. In the end some amusing stuff here and there stopped me from doing so. Oh, and the singers did a good job in this. The songs are all well performed. You can have this movie on in the background some cloudy day and I think it will be an OK time. If you are a fan of the Sandler Gang then maybe you will have fun too. Not for me though.
