I just don't get him. Maybe I don't go for goofy guys, but Adam Sandler seems way OTT most of the time. I bought this movie purely for the trailer (which is fantastic), and Jack Nicholson. Funny, I never normally seem to like him, but now I'm really getting into him.
This movie is great - if you like Jack, as he's hilarious throughout. However, the rest of the movie seems to die a slow death after the opening scenes. It was such a great original idea for a movie, but Jack seems to struggle to hold up the movie.
There is a particularly funny "cameo", as a virtually unrecognisable Woody Harrelson (you'll recognise him towards the end), and he's so funny! FREAKS! Very confused, if you catch my drift.
The ending is very good, which has lifted the marks for this review. There's a twist to the whole story, and with everyone singing "I Feel Pretty", it leaves you with a happy feeling - although you cannot get the song out of your head afterwards! I'm going around singing it! That's so not good.
This movie is good, if you're a fan of Adam Sandler. Frankly, his humour, and expressionless face is not to my taste. Jack is, however!
