The first PG-13 comedy from R-rated laffer auteur Sean Anders ("Horrible Bosses 2," "That's My Boy") winds up an unpalatable mix with little to satisfy families or anyone who likes to laugh.

Anders's film tells a basic story in which strutting males repeatedly lock horns to varying degrees of comic effect.

It is best avoided unless a movie that has the attitude and mind-set of a schoolyard bully happens to be your thing.

It's by-numbers filmmaking that rarely adds up to anything worth the price of admission.

Everybody loves a good laugh, but what makes us unashamedly burst out in shrieks of delight is purely in the eye of the beholder. Some people still find Adam Sandler funny (and relevant) while others find the rebooted canned laughter of early eighties American slap stick comedy the right fit for their sense of humour.
