I was pleasantly surprised, mainly because I kept expectations really low going in. I know I’ve said this a million times, but life is so much easier when you keep your expectations in check (i.e. very low).
First of all, Brooklyn Decker was shockingly pretty good, but all credit goes to the the writers, director & rest of the talented cast for successfully keeping your attention off Brooklyn when she wasn’t wearing a bikini. When your job is to simply be quiet, show off your rack & legs, it’s easy money. And by far, the most hilarious character in the film is the little chick (Bailee Madison) who does the English accent. The talent level of modern-day child stars always shocks me. That girl’s definitely going places.
If you’re an impatient moviegoer, you’re definitely gonna be looking at your watch a lot (I checked the time about 5 times during the last 45mins). Maybe it’s just me, but did they forget to edit the film for all scenes with painfully forced humor (I’m sorry, but Nicole Kidman & Dave Matthews could be dumped altogether to cut 30mins), unnecessary filler scenes, bullshit dialogue, etc, etc? As the second hour approached, it was almost painful to watch all the sappy scenes stuffed in to properly close out the film. We fucking get it: Adam Saddler marries the girl he truly loves. I hate watching films that assume the audience is a pile of mindless rocks.View All Photos ›
