One theory is that when previously I watched movies with those actors and my sense of humor was something else than it is now. But how can I explain the phenomena of still laughing at jokes in Deuce Bigalow, The Waterboy, Happy Gilmore and so. They are all stupid comedies where you don't have to think, just watch them and you get it. Or is it like I just think they are funny because in my subconscious I remember them to be it?
As a fan of a couple previous Adam Sandler movies, I was planning to go watch his newest movie "Grown Ups." Until I heard that there is no plot to the movie, I kind of hesitated to go watch it, but I said it to myself "Hmm, it's an Adam Sandler movie, yeah it has no plot but at least it's going to be funny so it can't be that bad." I was more wrong than I ever was. I literally laughed twice or three times in the whole movie.
Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Rob Schneider, David Spade and Chris Rock, hanging out in a lake house, cracking wise at each other for two hours? Whats the plot then? Wait that IS the plot? You mean they just hang out and insult each other? My goodness! The script is nothing short of tacky and the movie never really gives you a reason to keep watching. I kept looking over at people in the audience after one liners and everyone would just kind of look at each other with awkward, uncomfortable faces.
Either be a kid and watch this cartoon flick or just “Grow Up” and watch some good understandable comedy.
