SPOILER! If you haven't seen it, skip this post and listen to Nina Simone.
So it was almost 1am when the movie ended yesterday, so I thought maybe 'cause I was very tired and sleepy I couldn't make out the moral of this movie.
We all know Adam Sandler likes to give a moral or lesson for people to learn at the end of his movies, and we all know his movies are never the same but there are always a lot of common things between them.
Starts off good, many laughs, audience was cracking up even though I know that many jokes were pretty American and people in Lebanon cannot possibly get them, but that is the power of stand up comedy live if the first two or three made you laugh, and then the jokes are coming out rapidly one after the other, you laugh at them all.
And then there is a twist, in the middle of the movie you get a clear idea of the lesson that they want you to notice it (it's not about money, and sex it's about family, etc.. remember his movie Click!?), it was pretty obvious. But then, and the dude with the thick voice says it anyway (You're one of the only persons who did not learn anything from a near death experience), they yell, then they fight, then they make up but each continues the life he had before but with some improved things.
I still don't get if there was more to it or not, I donno why.. so if you got it more than I did, tell me what you think.
Oh and the trailer is very different from the movie. The toaster joke didn't even appear anywhere in the movie.
