Five friends from school reunites at their basketball coach’s funeral. They have all grown up and most of them even have children. To honer their coach’s memory they all are going to stay in a cottage for the weekend. It is now time for old friends to create new memories as well as relive old ones.
I have seen this movie a couple of times now and I love it each and every time! For starters, Adam Sandler is such a funny character and very talented. The movie has a good and interesting storyline with a lot of humor and awkward situations. The story is on the more unique scale, it is nothing one has seen everywhere. Back to Adam Sandler, he is one of the reasons to why this movie is so damn funny and interesting. He is in a lot of these kinds of movies, for example “Blended”, “Just Go With It”, “50 First Dates” and many many more. He is often one of the writers in the movies he’s starring, as well as this one. You could definitely see that by all the funny comments and jokes.
The movie is family friendly due to the mix of both children and adults. Without the children I don’t believe the movie would have been as good, it would probably be a bit monotonous. There is a small story about the children and the wives which complete the whole movie very well and it’s neither confusing nor too much. I don’t really have much more to say about the movie other than it’s a really good comedy movie and I recommend you to watch it!
