When a group of childhood friends (Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock, David Spade and Rob Schneider) get together to attend the funeral of their high school basketball coach, they spend their first weekend together in over 30 years and learn how everyone has changed -- or perhaps stayed juvenile. Also with Salma Hayek and Maya Rudolph. Directed by Dennis Dugan. [1:42]

A CAVEAT: We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and some of our early standards were not as stringent as they are now. We therefore need to revisit many older reviews, especially those written prior to 1998 or so; please keep this in mind if you're consulting a review from that period. While we plan to revisit and correct older reviews our resources are limited and it is a slow, time-consuming process.

INAPPROPRIATE ADS? We have little control over ads since we belong to ad agencies that serve ads automatically; a standing order should prevent provocative ads, but inappropriate ads do sneak in.
