Delivers what Adam Sandler fans want: dopey, moronic fun.
Sandler’s character is an irritating scumbag and while I guess that’s what he was going for in his performance, it’s shrill and unpleasant to spend time around this loser.
The film can’t shake a general hand-me-down atmosphere although Aniston and Sandler work well together as a comedy team.
The film is colorful, funny, and engaging enough for both kids and adults to find much to enjoy.
It’s a stale set up and no new comedy bounds are broken, but the “The Week Of” delivers the laughs and will surprise audiences with its genuinely sweet and heartwarming story.
As with most of Sandler’s recent work, the story has a sweet and heartfelt tone and ending. It’s not really out of place here, but it also doesn’t exactly feel earned or authentic.
