Life Is Not about Winning or Losing but How You Play the Game.
I am a recent "convert" of Adam Sandler and Kevin James' humor. Originally, I couldn't stand their slapstick comedic takes, many of which I felt were stupid or insulting to women. After watching a few seasons of King of Queens, I warmed up to Kevin James. Adam Sandler was a little more difficult to like because many of his films were practically the same plot structures, which becomes boring and predictable. The movie that first caught my attention was 50 First Dates. To this …

Inappropriate humor ? Yes did you expect anything less?
Grown Ups I remember the first time I saw the trailer for this movie; it had me on the floor hyperventilating, why? Well because this film has bunch of the funniest comedy actors all together that’s why. David Spade, Kevin James, Adam Sandler, Chris Rock andRob Schneider, Hell as a kid I basically grew up on these guys movies. (Yes and Disney’s to) So this movie was defiantly a first day watch for me.       Grown ups is about five friends who after thirty years …

KEVIN JAMES, STEVE BUSCEMI, DAVID SPADE, CHRIS ROCK, ROB SCHNEIDER, ADAM SANDLER, AND ONE OF THE HOT
      GROWN UPS   I am a huge Kevin James fan and have not missed one of his films at the theaters, so of course I had to go see this film. Add in that I am a huge David Spade, Chris Rock, Adam Sandler, and Rob Schneider fan and I just can’t have a bad time at this movie. Now I will say from the get go this film is not for everybody and I have noticed that some people just don’t get this film. This film is basically what the title says, growing up, and well …

isn't half bad as far as these movies go, and I like its emphasis on family. However, the humor in Grown Ups is just really odd and random at times. Not infrequently, there will be something that's supposed to be funny, but just isn't (like an old black grandmother farting). The biggest problem with the movie though is that it seems rushed. It was heading towards an interesting confrontation, but all of the tension is resolved within a few minutes and a group conversation. It's almost like the director …

Somewhere within "Grown Ups" is a film that can be taken seriously. There are good themes at work: Friendship, family, generation gaps, the ups and downs of marriage, whether or not aging is the same as maturing. The problem is, none of it shines through the murk of its incessant low grade comedy; rather than make us laugh with genuinely funny material, writers Adam Sandler and Fred Wolf rely on juvenile jokes that put all emphasis on unrealistic personality quirks. It's all character and no development. …

It takes a little time for the film to find its footing, but by the end I was giggling so hard I had tears pouring down my cheeks. The overall message of the film was good as well -- family and friends are what brings joy in life, while money and things are fleeting.

There's all sorts of comedies out there. There's the high-brow satirical ones, the low, bawdy comedies (a friend of mine once asked, "Are pornographic BBS's baudy?" None of you under 20 will get that), the surreal comedies, the slapstick and the romantic. A good comedy film (or book, or TV show), can be any of these categories. Some of the best cross through many of them. But all these comedies have one thing in common: they must be funny. A good comedy can offend. It can shock. It can rock your …
