This film starts off with the a middle school winning a basketball game. Introducing the characters as children. This is the Coach’s first and only win, so this is a special victory for him. Years later, Coach passes away and the members of the team come together to honor him at his funeral. Lenny Feder (Adam Sandler), the town’s biggest success because he’s an accomplished publicist in Los Angeles, CA. Eric Lamonsoff (Kevin James), the sofa king’s associate. Kurt McKenzie (Chris Rock) the loving house husband. Marcus Higgins (David Spade) the trouble maker. Last but not least, Rob Hilliard (Rob Schnieder) the hopeless romantic for elderly women. With the team back together with their families, Feder decides to rent a cabin and reminence about the good ole’ days. Will the vacation bring them close together again?

Review:

This film has it’s moments of funny and other moments of trying too hard. The taunting the characters acted to one another was over the top because they prolonged the joke, especially Sandler’s character. It’s never a good idea to have more than two comedians on one film, because they all want to get in their funny moments. To which becomes over the top and appears as trying too hard to be funny. The locations of the film were nice to look at, filled with peaceful family atmosphere. All in all, I would not view this film again.
