Parents beware

We usually enjoy Adam Sandler movies but this one is terrible! I was shocked at some scenes (the pretty graphic threesome, the sex doll) and rechecked the age rating. I was so upset as it’s way too much for a 13 year old viewer. This should be rated 18+.

This title has:

Too much sex

This is the worst movie I have ever watched. Two old middle age pervy pedo men do nothing but bash women and their bodies while they force us to view young women topless and in tiny bikinis. Two tweens are shown masturbating (under covers) A woman humps a man naked briefly Very strong, very crude, sexuality including references to dildos, sex dolls, gay, homophobia, threesomes, sausages, cum, sex, fucking, dry humping, and more Full frontal male nudity; Adam Sandler holds up a picture of a nude man and we see a closeup nude picture of him. Two girls in bikinis on a boat flash their breasts for several seconds. A guy then flashes his penis at the girls (not shown). A threesome with two guys and a girl. Movement is shown, they switch positions. She keeps her bra on and does not show nudity. One of the guys' butt and balls are visible (from behind). Three people are watching the threesome. A couple is heard having very loud sex and shaking the walls. Detailed discussion of gay couples and sex. An old lady shows her breasts.. drooping below her waist. (prosthetic) The two main actors should be locked up for how they treat women and I feel so bad for the women who were made to portray themselves in this light to get an acting job. Women are not objects and men do not act this way. This movie needs to be removed from public viewing.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (5 ):
Kids say (9 ):

If the obscenities and swearing don't get you, the ridiculous bloody mayhem might. And if that's not enough, watch out for the skankiest sexual jokes and crudest sexual behavior that an adolescent could concoct. No redeeming values here. The story is convoluted, ludicrous, and derivative; performances abysmal (and it's hard, very hard to make Kathryn Hahn look bad!). The gay jokes and characters are demeaning, as is the portrayal of an elderly woman (Renee Taylor, what were you thinking?). It's possible that the actors and the crew had a great time making this bomb. At least they got to visit some beautiful, warm climes when New York was coping with ice storms and freezing temperatures. You have to be in on the joke to get it, and the joke isn't funny anyway. To be avoided at all costs -- even for free if you're a Netflix subscriber.
