Proof Sandler can make great movies (by lusciousmuffins)
Not sure what happened to Adam Sandler recently because his movies when from really funny to painfully bad. Consequently, I clicked on "The Do-Over" with more than a bit of trepidation. Still, it had a decent number of stars and the best part about Netflix is being able to stop watching as you see fit. Well, surprise! surprise! I ended up being very glad I took a chance on this flick.No, this is not the next Citizen Kane, but if you are looking for a feel good comedy, then you owe it to yourself to watch it. I confess that the inclusion of David Spade also was a huge plus for me, <more>
but even if you're not a Spade fan, there's a good chance you're going to enjoy "The Do-Over". Yes, there are still of few jokes that rely on juvenile and gross themes for laughs; however, overall this is a delightful movie with a lot of heart. Put another way, it actually has a plot that keeps you engaged, instead of a string of crass jokes with very little story and/or a story that's so dumb you simply cannot get into it, as has been the case with many of Sandler's recent films.Another aspect of this movie you are likely to enjoy is the scenery. It appears they filmed mostly in Puerto Rico and Georgia, the peach state, which made for some nice backdrops. The other thing I enjoyed was the action. The story included a fair amount of gunfire and car chases, so if that's a selling point for you when it comes to movies, you'll have even more to love.Now, I'm not saying this is a family film. While it is uplifting, this is definitely not a movie for the kids. There is a lot of sex and violence, some of which was super R-rated, so if you have kids maybe wait until they're at gram-gram's for the weekend before checking this one out. And if your children ask to see it, unless they are in college, just say no.No Sandler's somewhat sophomoric humor might not be for everyone, but if you aren't one of those people who take everything too seriously and believes only highbrow comedy is worthy of your attention, then this movie will make you laugh out loud.I only hope this movie is a beginning of Sandler's return to form. He obviously has the potential to produce good films and shows when he doesn't go overboard on cheap laughs at the expense of storytelling, so here's hoping he remembers that in the future. Personally, I wouldn't mind seeing more movies like "The Do-Over".
Made me laugh all morning. Sandler has peaked in my eyes, finally. Looks better, acts better and David Spade is brilliant as usual. Loved it and can highly recommend it to all who appreciates movies such as All about Mary, Dumb & dumber, Arrested development, Modern family and those kind of flicks & shows. Beautiful scenery with lots of cool boats and sunshine, good balance between action and jokes. The plot seemed a bit lame but they sure made everything work. Sandler is supposed to be on of the most over paid actors in the industry and until this morning I was inclined to agree. But <more>
no more dissing Mr Waterboy for me! *still chuckles*Yaaaay 😁👍👍👍
Loved it, Was seriously surprised by how good it was (by coonshep)
So i knew the movie would be at least somewhat funny. David spade and sandler both make good comedies. This however surprised me. There were so many moments where I was on the edge of my seat laughing. There were some pretty hilarious parts. I watched it with some friends and we all thought it was one of his best movies. The Do Over is defiantly his best recent movie. Maybe this will be a trend of good movies. You seriously have to have no since of humor to not find this movie to be funny. This is the kind of stuff he should be putting in theaters. I bet this one would have been a box office <more>
success. Id like to see David spade in more movies anyways. Lol
For a movie that was expecting to be as bad or even worst than the ridiculous 6 that came out in February I was highly surprised on how good this movie actually was. the movie is about Adam Sanlder and David spade that fake their death due to the life's being awful, but there's a twist the they change there identity to people that have died but unfortunately for them they are the most FBI wanted in America David spade doesn't know why yet but Sandler secretly does, so they are hunted down by serial killer because they want the secret formal the movie plays thriller, comedy and <more>
drama all in to 1 and is simply brilliant while doing it. They get away from serial killers lucky to find the dead guys wife forgot names sorry so they find her and at first she seems nice but later we find the full truth. David spade finds that Adam Sandler has cancer and there is a secret formal that will save him, but the serial killer guys want the formal and they will destroy it because it won't get them enough money. This is were we find that the dead guys wife is evil and she's working for them. I don't want to spoil the ending fully, this is my first review so sorry if it's not to good, I would highly recommend this movie as it's free on Netflix 9/10 one of the best Adam Sanlder movies ever!!
Adam drives this movie. Spade keeps it relatable. It is so good to see these two back in action. Action packed, exciting and unexpected. (by kpwwhit)
Yes Adam Sandler. Yes yes yes. He's back.It was goofy.It was outrageous.He and David Spade simply work.Adam looks younger, and better than ever.Creative plot.Obviously obnoxious at times.But true to the craft that is the Adam Sander David Spade sense of humor.Rocked. Excited. Thankful of this.
Adam Sandler & David Spade (by richlorigan)
Well they do it again one of the best Sandler movies yet very funny. Dont listen to the haters watch it you'll love it.
Sandler back? (by earnyandberney)
This movie I was expecting to be as bad if not worse than The Ridiculous 6 which I couldn't even finish, but I was pleasantly surprised with The Do Over. The movie has a good amount of laughs, and at some points kept me on the edge of my seat. I think that this is one of Sandler's best movies within the past 6 years. I was also very happy with David Spade's performance. I was expecting him to be just like he was in Grown Ups, as a stupid immature old man, but he surprised me as well. He kept the movie funny as well as maintained great acting the entire movie, as well as the whole <more>
cast. Overall, the movie was great. Great acting, great laughs, great action which still surprised me , and one of Sandler's best in the past few years.
I am a fan of older Adam Sandler movies Billy Maddison, Happy Gilmore, and old SNL with Farley . Everyone knows Sandler has done some terrible stuff in the past while, but this one wasn't the worst.He wasn't terribly over the top or in your face like he is in roles for films like Zohan, That's my Boy, Jack & Jill. This film had genuinely laugh-out-loud moments; the cast really helps Kathryn Hahn, Matt Walsh - even David Spade is funny! The movie isn't a classic. It isn't going to be one you're quoting. The film is enjoyable! If you're looking for a laugh, <more>
20 years ago, a movie starring Adam Sandler, Catherine Bell and David Spade would be plastered all over billboards and the trailer would be shown 50 times during an episode of Saturday Night Live. Well, fast forward 2 decades and it is basically the same movie – a movie from a decade where Adam Sander made funny movies and David Spade was a star Catherine Bell, maybe the best actor of the cast really only has a cameo, so we can ignore her . However I was only told about this film from a friend, and I had no interest in it until he said it was good. So the story has Spade I won't use <more>
the character names because Sandler for all intents and purposes is Sandler and Spade is Spade, so why bother living a unfulfilling life working at a bank and in a loveless marriage only to meet up with Sandler during a school reunion. Very soon Sandler fakes their deaths and hilarity ensues. So it's Sandler doing Sandler, but it is good Sandler, so if you are 40 and remember his glory days of Happy Gilmore, this is a good reminisce. If you only remember Little Nicky, well here is a reminder of why he is a big Hollywood star. Spade has always been a very strong strait man, and the 2 actors do have chemistry. There are the obligatory cast of crazy side characters, who although maybe not classic, are definitely funny. The main villain should get s special nod here. The movie has the Sandler style of dick and fart jokes, but they are more funny and less tasteless than I have seen in recently. The plot is silly, but of course it is supposed to be. However unlike some of his more recent movies such as Grown-ups which forgo plot for what amounts to set pieces of 'comedy', the movie does keep the viewer interested in what is going on.To say that Sander is 'back' might be taking it too far, to say he has made a very respectable, funny movie that reminds me why he was a bright star of comedy for almost a decade is about right.I enjoyed the film, and ultimately, that is what is important!
