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.

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

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.

The concept is inspired. The execution is lame.

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

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.

The pairing of Nicholson and Sandler is golden.
