    The shortage of wit and the excess of goo can be summed up in Sandler's line to these children of divorce: "I'm like the stink on your feet — I'll always be there." show more

    The fantasy segments, played up in trailers, get bogged down amid the ho-hum tale of a loser making good. show more

    The usual Adam Sandler movie: Some schmuck becomes a big hero at the end of the movie and he ends up with the girl. It was predictable, but I still enjoyed it. My kids liked it, and I even laughed several times. Those who have watched his movies before and know how these things go, will know right off the bat what girl Adam Sandler is going to end up with at the end fo the movie (*********** always the one the main character doesn't get along with at first). If you are looking for a movie for pizza night with the kids, then this is a good one to rent.
