Rating 3/5

Comedy. 2010. 99 min. with Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, Rob Schneider and David Spade. Director: Dennis Dugan. 16SL.

Five childhood friends reunite after the death of their old basketball coach and set off for New England for his funeral and a weekend at their old party house on the lake. But how things have changed!

Lenny (Sandler), the leader of the pack, is now a wealthy Hollywood agent with a gorgeous fashion designer wife (Hayek). Eric (James) used to be super-fit but is now overweight, and his four-year-old son is still being breastfed by his mom. Kurt (Rock) is a stay-at-home dad with a motherin- law from hell, while Marcus (Spade) is a womanising bachelor and Rob (Schneider) is into holistic medicine and has a penchant for older women. Some scenes are a bit cheesy but each character gets a chance to shine and on the whole this is a funny, likeable movie. Bonus: bloopers, gag reel.
