Background Info

I’m not sure this would normally be my type of film, but after watching Grown Ups, and with the knowledge that The Wedding Singer is one of the best films ever, Adam Sandler has been going up and up in my estimation. And, of course, I love Rachel.

Another really good film. Actually, just like Grown Ups, it had a pretty slow start - but once the lying began, they really hit their stride. There were plenty of laugh out loud moments, there were some bits where I wasn’t quite sure what they were talking about, but the relationship between Adam and Jennifer was so good, it didn’t matter.

Also, the music was excellent. Mashups ahoy.

Rating: 4/5
