The Do-Over (2016) 3 out of 5 Starring Adam Sandler and David Spade. This is definitely a feel good movie and not of the rom com variety, which is refreshing. It’s a unique and hilarious tale of two high school best buds getting together again after meeting up at their school reunion. It has a hint of Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle (2004) but this time, middle aged men hoping to get a second shot at life and done in quintessential Adam Sandler style. Not everyone’s cup of tea though, but I personally find his movies awesome. My favourite would be 50 First Dates (2004) and The Wedding Singer (1998). I remember watching 50 First Dates with old high school friends, Sonia and Cheryl during my mini trip to Melbourne waayyy back when. Most movies and even songs for that matter, have specific sentimental values usually coinciding with particular phases in my life, friends and yes, attached emotions. I can recall feeling young, vibrant and happy during that little Melbourne movie outing. There is something uplifting about meeting up with old friends, catching up, learning to be independent as adults, chasing individual dreams – I guess, it’s the case of ‘growing up apart, together’ if that makes sense. Back to The Do-Over, Adam’s movies tend to be humorous visually, less talk and wit needed. A direct comedy punch and not everyone can take it. I like his movies and this movie in particular despite the (at times) uncomfortable visuals, there is a brilliant storyline and true to Adam’s style, it’s heartwarming and gives you the warm feel-good fuzzies.
