Review: 

            Well, this film is funnier than I thought it would be. I was expecting to just watch a movie only just to watch it and not be entertained. I was so wrong. I like that Sandler played a different role from his usual typical loser yet funny roles; in this movie he is a successful doctor and also funny. I love the way Danny picks at Katherine, so playful and open. Every time, Sandler makes a joke at Aniston, his laugh seems so real, more real than his other movies. Watch any of his other films and compare his laughs, I guarantee you will see a difference. I know this is not really an important factor but it is because it’s what makes the movie even better. Anyway, I also like the connection between Danny and Katherine. The everyday work colleague that you can joke around with and share stories about personal matters while also keeping humor in them, a joy to watch. Katherine’s children, Maggie (Baliee Madison) and Michael (Griffin Gluck) are too funny and too cute for words. I’ve watched Baliee in a couple of films and they all seem like safe characters-although she is a good actor but safe. I enjoyed seeing her come out of the box with her character in this movie, she is going places. This is an absolute fun movie to watch. All in all, I will buy this film on DVD or Blu-ray.

  1. Agreed! Simply lovely to watch. Initially, I saw Sandler with the big nose and thought “Argggh” but I was pleasantly surprised. I even enjoyed Aniston’s role which was a likeable character. Not oscar material but great, light entertainment. Ps. you’re right about Madison, she’s so talented.
