    6 / 10
    Adam Sandler is either loved or hated, but never ignored. I tend to dislike him very much. Still, a lot of people told me that this movie is "funny as hell". Well, after watching the movie I can only hope I`m never going to go to hell - it`s a boring, sad and rude place. Yup, just like this movie.
    The video transfer is very good. There are no compression signs anywhere and the colors are beautifully contrasted. Some of the visual special effects are nice, too.
    The DD 5.1 soundtrack is ok. While there aren`t that many special effects in the movie, the surrounds are mainly used for playing the loud (too loud, perhaps?!?) rock music.
    Notice that despite what is written on the disk`s box, there aren`t any closed captions.
    The menus are all hilariously animated with sound.
    The extras include 2 commentaries, an extensive behind the scenes look, 21 (!!!) deleted scenes, a sort of documentary about rock music and a music video. While the extras are really good, they cannot salvage this movie.
    Bottom line - if you are a fan of Adam Sandler or if cheap jokes and VERY low humor is your idea of a good time, this is the movie for you. For all the rest of you, avoid at all cost.
