This is an ugly, tasteless, deadly and mean-spirited piece of…filmmaking.

Adam Sandler, Leighton Meester, James Caan, Andy Samberg

Some people need too take the stick out of their asses. Ya it wasn't awesome, but raunchy enough to be pretty funny.

I agree with you 100%, Richard. This movie was a disaster since the first minute the film it started. It was awful. What do you think was his last best movie?

It looked pretty terrible, almost as terrible as Jack and Jill. Adam Sandler really has lost his edge, well that happened YEARS ago, I can't remember the last time he was in anything funny.

I agree with almost everything you said. I'm not an Adam Sandler fan at all, but I still laughed during this monstrosity. It was so absurb and over the top, I decided to go with it. I can even see how someone might be offended by it, the day I start worrying about that is the same day I join the human race. And I don't think I'm ready for that just yet.

There are funnier and more entertaining stuff on youtube than this movie. They are free to watch too!

As a critic for my college newspaper, I know how it can feel to be drudged into absolute turds. However, you seem to have seen so many more awful films than I have so for that, I salute you. You need a medal or something for taking the bullets for all of us!

Richard roeper, to me you are the best critic out there. I admire you and I really enjoy your reviews. You are funny and everything a critic should be. If I ever become a critic, actor or director, I will always consult you first because you are the best in business

While I was looking for the actual review I found your give and take with others and really find it refreshing. Now, to see Adam Sandlers name mentioned on the same page as woody Allen is almost vomit inducing. But, it should be noted that Adam can make better choices. Can't he? It can't be about money and I do know folks that think Bannanas is the worst film ever. But the man needs to say no to these films that seem to be relieved as a big middle finger to sanity.

Anyone who liked this movie is a complete moron. I weep for the future...

Richard, what are the odds that Sandler is the middle of an elaborate Andy Kaufman-esque prank where he just wants to see how badly he can abuse his audience?
I had to go review this last night and couldn't decide whether this was actually somehow worse than Jack and Jill.
Also, I haven't seen a lot of other critics take as much issue with the rampant product placement as I did. Dropping Quiznos and Axe Bodyspray mentions into a single scene is one thing, but recreating the Budweiser "Wazza" ad not once but TWICE is freaking egregious.
