  1. Has a few surprises in store. The biggest is James, an unexpectedly nimble master of the face-plant, the failed jump, and the lopsided tumble.
  2. 63
    It's fine for kids, though, and it doesn't try too hard.
  3. The film is completely forgettable, frequently funny and weirdly satisfying in a Jersey Loser Gets Respect kind of way.
  4. 42
    James has a sweet, appealing presence, but the dreary, joke-light script and generic direction do him no favors.
  5. 40
    A tossed-off comedy from Adam Sandler's production company that makes one long for the comparative genius of "I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry."
  6. To call this Kevin James comedy fatuous might be misinterpreted as an attack on the star's girth--so how about inane, tepid, lazy, puerile, phony, and unfunny?
  7. 12
    Looks like something stubbed out in an ashtray.

    Movie is a throwback to 90's comedies. Not to serious, and just funny.

    Yes it is goofy and very typical for Kevin James. I Like James enough that I still enjoyed going and I was able to take my teenage daughter. Yes it is goofy and very typical for Kevin James. I Like James enough that I still enjoyed going and I was able to take my teenage daughter. Not extremely memorable, but somewhat refreshing to see something that isn't full of shock-value crudeness.

    The real question is how any self-respecting critic could give this movie a "green" rating. Each of them should lose their job immediately.
