“When I heard the title and learned that Adam Sandler was in this movie, I had very low expectations. Boy, was I surprised. This is a wonderful film, not at all the low-level fluff film I expected. All the female actresses, young and old, are absolutely terrific, and Adam Sandler does a respectable job in a semi-serious role. The writing is very clever, and the film will elicit laughter as well as tears. I found my self still thinking about the movie the next day, something that all too often doesnu0026#39;t happen with todayu0026#39;s highly forgettable films. One caveat: this is really a movie for teens and up, not a kidsu0026#39; movie. Aside from a bad word or two and a (hilarious) sex scene, the underlying themes are quite adult. Enjoy!”
