Barrymore, Sandler Exchange Fast Paced Insults, then (how?) Fall for Each Other
After their families end up at the same South African hotel suite (lions, giraffes, tigers, oh my!), hate jabs and barbs enrich the java which does contain slapstick, schmaltz, and continuous (laughable) verbal abuse. Considering that neither attempts suicide or tries to kill the other physically the positive chemistry ignites from kindness toward the other one's kids. The "enemy" just might have redeeming qualities?
Originally titled "Familymoon," some critics have slaughtered the flick as a cliched three camera TV situation comedy evoking boredom, however, cliches and cynical attitudes a given, you do find sweet, compassionate and funny moments.
Female reviewers generally give this a thumbs mostly up while the dudes trample Sandler for failing to grow up.
I found a male Sandler fan who "loved" the movie. Admitting that it will be difficult to convince mind made up naysayers, the dude added, "it's a movie I'll add to my DVD collection as soon as it comes out."
