REVIEW: Grown Ups

Leave a comment

Sometimes there are those movies were the trailer looks like it might be a dud but you figure it can’t be bad because it’s got a great cast behind it. This is kind of how I felt about Grown Ups. The trailer looked like your run of the mill family comedy movie, not much interest there, but it’s got a great cast line up so I figured at the very least there had to be a couple good laughs in it. That cast includes Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, David Spade, Rob Schneider and Salma Hayek. There was also surprise appearances by Steve Buscemi, Colin Quinn and Tim Meadows. Not to mention this was written by Adam Sandler and Fred Wolf (a man who had a hand in such greats as Black Sheep, Dirty Work, Joe Dirt and Strange Wilderness. So I felt pretty confident that I’d at least be amused here. Luckily this movie does more than amuse, it’s pretty damn funny. Despite it’s look as a lame family friendly comedy it had me laughing pretty good more than a few times. And for those of you that are hoping for that family friendly bullshit don’t worry there this is one of those cases where a movie gets some big laughs in a totally G rated enviroment. If you’re thinking about checking this out but aren’t sure, I say go for it, I’m glad I did.

REVIEW: Happy Endings The Tales of a Meaty-Breasted Zilch

Leave a comment

jimnortonhappyHappy Endings The Tales of a Meaty-Breasted Zilch is a book written by Jim Norton and Colin Quinn, two great comedians, I was pretty excited to read this book but it didn’t quite work out that way. Instead I happened across the audio book, read by Jim Norton. This book is more or less a collection of stories thrown together, it really good and had me laughing out loud more than once. I must admit starting out I was a little disappointed with it but once things got going there was no regrets picking this up. The choice to go with the audio book instead of diving into dead trees was a good one too because having Jim Norton read his own book adds a lot to some of these stories. If you find this one around check it out if you’re a fan of hilarious stuff.
