I'm going to start by giving you some film stats, about the plot, then go into my review. *WARNING - THIS MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS*
Rating; PG-13 for, "Crude material including suggestive references, language and some male rear nudity."
Staring; Adam Sandler and Kevin James.
Released; 25Th of June, 2010.
This is the story of a group of men who were once part of a champion basketball team, they all return to their home town for the funeral of the coach that took them there, their 8Th grade coach Bobby 'Buzzer'(Blake Clark)Ferdinando. After so much time apart with Lenny(Adam Sandler)Feder becoming a publicist, Kurt (Chris Rock) McKenzie a stay-at-home dad, Rob (Rod Schnider) Hilliard married an lady old enough to be his mom, Eric (Kevin James) Lamonsoff recently getting layed off, and last Marcus (David Spade) Higgins who is still a bachelor. First this was just about paying respects, but it became so much more. It became showing all their kids that video games and gadgets are not a childhood, it's about taking risks and getting dirty.
It was funny, it certainly had it's awkward moments though. It's what you can expect from most Adam Sandler movies, they wont make your list of most inspirational or best picture, but they will make you laugh out loud and possibly make that list. It was entertaining. I would watch it again maybe with a group of friends, because it's often more fun to laugh with friends. It's rated PG13 so keep that in mind when you're going out to rent it. And in the rating description where it says "Male rear nudity", it happens twice, the first was a (Old) man after going down a really fast water slide, and the second was David Spade, getting up in the morning. Neither were supposed to be attractive, they more make you turn away. Just thought I'd clarify.
To sum it up, it was funny, worth watching.
