Trivia

Many script re-writes were necessary throughout filming this feature as attempts to match the quality of other recent Sandler films. Similar treatments have been done in Sandler's previous Netflix movies, along with Pixels (2015), That's My Boy (2012), Grown Ups (2010), Grown Ups 2 (2013), et cetera. The original script had planned to feature a few comedy moments to improve the viewing experience, and did not enforce any silly voices upon the main cast of characters. See more »

Goofs

At 44:25 - when Sandy's clients are running towards the pool and Courtney is teasing Sandy that she will put her whole foot in the pool if he comes one step closer towards her, look at Sandy's client (Shelly Desai) who is standing to the right of Kevin James' character. Shelly goes back and forth from taking off his tie and blazer to having his tie and blazer back on. He also keeps switching positions between standing next to and behind Kevin James' character.

Crazy Credits

After the first part of the end credits, we get one more wedding testimonial from Mike Judge (playing himself). While the second part of the end credits roll, we hear a prank call that Sandy receives. It's Judge doing the voices of Beavis and Butt-Head (1993). After a few minutes, we see Adam Sandler and Judge recording the conversation. See more »

Bad, Even by Sandler Standards
14 April 2017 | by evmcelroySee all my reviews

Because I have seen a few Sandler movies that I found to be interesting and well-scripted/acted, I am always willing to view a new entry in his career. I am sorry to report that this is one of his worst. When Woody Allen made this it was titled "Broadway Danny Rose" and it was head and shoulders above this movie. The Sandler character was a low-rent version of Jerry Lewis at his silliest and the plot uninteresting. Disappointing, but I'm not giving up. Sandler has greatness in him and I'm forever hopeful.
