This is another crude humor for the year but the difference is this film has a PG-13 rating.  You can tell when Sandler could have taken it to the next level and got an R rating but he held back on this one.

Five friends reunite for the funeral of their middle school basketball coach.  Lenny Feder (Sandler) is a successful movie producer who is married to Roxanne (Hayek) with three kids and a nanny.  Eric Lamonsoff (James) has been out of work but fakes it to look good in front of his old friends.  He is married to Sally (Bello) with two kids.  One of which is four years old and still breast-feeding.  Kurt (Rock) is a house-husband and father of two who is married to a pregnant Deanne (Rudolph) who wears the pants in the family.  Marcus (Spade) is a dirty old man who is single.  Last but not least Rob (Schneider) who is a free-spirit married to a woman in her seventies!  He also has three daughters from his previous marriages.

The group relived old memories, reconnect with each other and learn about life during their weekend stay at a house on the lake.  A lot of the movie felt like outtakes of these real-life friends cracking jokes on each other.  The kids were very hilarious, especially Lenny’s high maintenance kids.  The movie wraps up with an old man basketball challenge!  If you have nothing to do, wants a few laughs or it is too hot to do anything outside, go check out this movie.  I give it 2/5 stars.
