    The pairing of Nicholson and Sandler is golden. Full Review

  • The concept is inspired. The execution is lame. Full Review

  • A better script and more attention to other cast members would have helped but, as it stands, this is still the best Adam Sandler comedy since The Wedding Singer. Full Review

  • Can it really be true that the latest Adam Sandler film is, well, quite funny? Ish? Yes -- but only because he's paired with Jack Nicholson. Full Review

  • Peter Segal directs individual sequences with a steady hand, but slack editing and a meandering and muddled plot make the film seem slow. Full Review

  • A lazy comedy that never lives up to the promise of its A-list central pairing, nor its raft of impressive cameos. Full Review

  • The antics here are strained, graceless and tiresomely crude, the sorts of things audiences feel they're supposed to laugh at rather than well-developed situations that generate genuine amusement. Full Review
