Plot:

After a bad blind date, a man and woman find themselves stuck together at a resort for families, where their attraction grows as their respective kids benefit from the burgeoning relationship.

Review:

I laughed, I cried, it moved me.

I’m not a big Adam Sandler fan, but I like his romantic movies. This movie, in my opinion, is right up there with 50 First Dates. Yes it was a bit heavy handed in places, but I don’t care.

There was nothing truly original here and there was an over abundance of clichés, but sometimes that’s what you need. It’s nice to watch a movie that you can rely on to deliver certain tropes and not try and reinvent the wheel.

4/5

Plot:

All the couples are back for a wedding in Las Vegas, but plans for a romantic weekend go awry when their various misadventures get them into some compromising situations that threaten to derail the big event.

Review:

Wow this movie is a whole bunch of romantic comedies rolled up into one. It’s like they couldn’t decide which one to do so they just did them all.

Are you looking for a commitmentphobe who learns to commit?

Or maybe you would like to see a wedding ruined because of Bachelor night hijinks?

How about a couple having issues trying to have kids but finally succeeding?

What about a couple that’s gotten boring and finally learns how to liven things up?

 

That isn’t even all the situations, I just got tired of writing them down.

It was amusing, sometimes, but not something I would ever watch again or even recommend. Maybe it would mean more to me if I’d seen the first movie, but I doubt it.

2/5
