    Not a bad flick. Interesting animation. I'm sure most kids and many adults would like it.

    6.5/10 stars

    Far far far from Sandler's best work. There are a few moments that made me chuckle, but overall, I was ... well ... Hercules says it best...



    I like the majority of Sandler's movies and have seen most multiple times. This is one I won't be going back to for a long, long time.

    5/10 stars (might be a bit generous)

    I don't think that anyone should be disappointed by an Adam Sandler movie. Especially the ones with his goons that somehow always feel the same with the cheap, tacky, cringe-worthy comedic lines and such. Since when does blatant stupidity and a consistency of no real plot for numerous years lead to comedies to be remembered? an Even his most successful and memorable are considered atrocious or mixed with more leaning towards the bad in 9 out of 10 reviews (I don't follow reviews but in Sandler's case, it does add up and it results in me seconding after giving them a chance or two). Big Daddy, Happy Gilmore, The Waterboy, Mr. Deeds, Anger Management, Click, 50 First Dates, Spanglish, and Reign Over Me are possibly above the rest but it's clear-cut that he's gone further downhill with his monstrosities. He does well in serious dramas. There is potential there but he chooses to go back to his comfort zone where he continues to flunk. ​

    He was good in Funny People. The Waterboy ranks as one of my all-time favorite comedies... love every line. I also like Big Daddy and the one where he goes back to school... though not quite as much as the one where Rodney Dangerfield goes back to school hahahaha.

    Yes, Funny People is definitely separated into a different par from the group of movies I was taking a jab at. Thanks for mentioning that one - I forgot to mention it.

    I can see why people would be a little annoyed by the Happy Madison Sandler films. About all of the comedies are the same, with the same crew, and same cheesy jokes. However I find something really endearing about them, and 50 First Dates has an absolutely outstanding soundtrack!

    I thought this movie was cute. Having Al Pacino chasing Jill for some bootay was hilarious. (wulda been funnier if she wulda kissed him).


    Not Sandler's best movie, but it was cute.

    The Roommate Not an epic masterpiece by any means, but a nice little thriller nonetheless. Minka Kelly is really pretty but I don't see her winning any Oscars anytime soon, and Leighton Meester played a pretty convincing psycho off her meds. I liked it.

    A movie definitely designed for the teenage boy market - lots of action and gore, some well-timed boob shots and a softcore porn scene in the middle for some reason which escapes me, but hey? Why complain?

    Instantly forgettable, as well. Which is a shame, because the Spartans are one of my favourite parts of history and deserve better I thought.

    Batman Forever (1995)
    [​IMG]

    Despite having never read a comic book in my life, and still being the only person yet to see The Dark Knight, I am becoming quite a fan of the Batman franchise.

    In this one, Kilmer fails to live up to Keaton (and later Bale) as Batman, Tommy Lee Jones is his usual awesome self but seems to be trying too hard to be Jack Nicholson, and the Batman franchise doesn't seem to fit Jim Carrey. Kidman and the dude who plays Robin just sit there and contribute nothing to the storyline.

    Yet, despite all this, it's still a lot of fun. I guess, the suit does most of the work anyway.
