As most of you know I am a pretty big fan of the Netflix movies. I am also a pretty big fan of Adam Sandler and Chris Rock. Both are quite funny, and Netflix has in my experience released some great movies. However this is not one of them.
Before I get into the things I don’t like about the movie, I will say it is a nice family movie, a few parts may be a bit edgy for the kids but no more than most movies these days with that rating. And the story itself is well put together with nice pacing and great acting.
The issue is the movie itself isn’t funny, and honestly I never really cared what was going on. The story of a well off man marrying a somewhat poor but still pretty middle class girl really isn’t something most people will relate to. And walking the line between being a comedy and more serious rarely works out, and it didn’t work out here. The movie is will be enjoyed by some I am sure, but for those expecting more from Rock and Sandler you will want to look elsewhere. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
