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.

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.

The film should have featured more absurd and nonsensical elements.

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.

If you've ever had a yen to relive the third grade, this must be the next best thing.

Só há uma coisa pior do que os habituais trejeitos (nada engraçados) de Adam Sandler: os roteiros que este escreve - e o segredo de seu sucesso nas bilheterias é um mistério maior do que o paradeiro de Jimmy Hoffa.
| Original Score: 1/5

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.

Director Tamra Davis and screenwriters Sandler and Tim Herlihy scatter the bad jokes like fertilizer. Nothing sprouts.

As one character tells Billy in the finale: "Everyone in this room is dumber for having listened to you."
