“Sure, it’s a new Adam Sandler movie, but this one has a chance of being good…”
Oh, how those words have come back to haunt me. The latest vehicle for Sandler’s mish-mash of family-friendly and the same ol’-same ol’, had an cautious optimism for me because he co-stars for the third time with Drew Barrymore; a team-up that has previously released two of the better films in Sandler’s filmography.
I suppose I should have realized that statistically, this didn’t stand a chance.
Sandler and Barrymore play two single parents with Brady Bunch-sized and gendered offspring who, in order to get a cheap family vacation to Africa have to take it together, despite the the two adults really not liking each other.
And oh, how calculated wackiness ensues!
Chris, Ashley and JC take the bullet on this one. Share their pain.
