Rating: 3/5

Five childhood friends reunite after the death of their former basketball coach and set off to New England, USA, 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 (Salma Hayek). Their two technology-loving sons are so spoilt they text the nanny to order food and drinks.

Eric (Kevin James) used to be super-fit but is now overweight and his four-year-old son is still breastfed by his mom.

Kurt (Rock) is a stay-at-home dad with a mother-in-law from hell.

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 has a chance to shine.

A funny, likeable movie.

Bonus: Bloopers, gag reel.
