This is Adam Sandler at his best, and his latest films are cheap grabs at what once came so easily to him.

It's refreshing to revisit the jester in his screen infancy, when all he wanted was to boogie to a Culture Club hit, carry on conversations with hair care products, and sit on a sprinkler.

When you get that Sandler's comedic persona is meant to be annoying, like Beavis and Butthead or Cartman, the laughs come thick and fast.

The best film Sandler has done. Wildy funny and appropriately over the top.

Okay, the plot is inane, but it's the basis of a series of really funny scenes.

Those unfamiliar with Sandler's antics may...begin to find him annoying sometime between the appearance of the Universal logo and the end of the opening credits.
