    A bummer - slack rather than loose, tired rather than fun.

    USA Today Scott Bowles

    For added heehaws, the normally dependable Nick Swardson comes along to act the ass and delve into some of Sandler's more nuanced scatological humor.

    The Hollywood Reporter Todd McCarthy

    The predicable, overlong romantic farce has enough sass and sex appeal to appease fans of stars Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston.

Pause for kids 14 & under

Some laughs, but often-crass Sandler romcom disappoints.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this romantic comedy has many of the ingredients we've come to expect from Adam Sandler movies: crass, juvenile humor, including plenty of scatological humor and jokes at the expense of the overweight or physically imperfect. Swearing is pretty infrequent but does include "s--t," and there are plenty of sexist jokes and pratfalls. There's also a fair amount sexual innuendo, at times around children, as well as drinking and references to a character's over-reliance on prescription drugs.

  • Families can talk about the movie's message. What does it say about lying? About relationships?
  • How does this film compare to other romantic comedies? Does it do anything differently?
  • What is the appeal of romantic comedies? Although they tend to follow the same predictable formula, they remain popular. Why do you think that is?

The good stuff
  • message true0

    Messages: The movie's message is, ostensibly, that a lying serial dater can be transformed by the love of a down-to-earth woman. But the movie also implies that women are gullible enough to fall for married men and that they'll forgive anything as long as someone says "I love you."

  • rolemodels true0

    Role models: On the one hand, Danny and Katherine come across as flawed-but-wonderful human beings who are capable of embracing change and love; on the other hand, Katherine allows Danny to treat her like a doormat. Also, the whole premise is based on a big lie, and characters make fun of people who are overweight or physically imperfect.

What to watch for
  • violence false1

    Violence: Characters slap each other and yell. Pratfalls.

  • sex false3

    Sex: Guys leer at scantily clad women; lingering shots of women in bikinis; a man boasts about his oversized genitalia; some kissing; plenty of sexual banter.

  • language false2

    Language: Fairly infrequent use of words such as "s--t," "ass," hell," and "crap." Also, plenty of sexual euphemisms.

  • consumerism false3

    Consumerism: Plenty of label-dropping, including Gucci, Old Navy, Botox, Tiffany, Grey Goose, Pepsi, iPod, iPhone, and PlayStation. A man bribes kids with money, trips, and stuff.

  • drugsalcoholtobacco false3

    Drinking, drugs and smoking: Characters down shots and drink plenty of wine and cocktails while on vacation. Some jokes about addiction to prescription drugs.
