It was wonderful to see Kevin James as a mature actor, in this story. His low key approach in the movie brought a cinematic reality to the story. I thought the story could have kicked Winkler around more as the aging (pick a type) character. He never ceases to be annoying. And James' character did a great job not to become the bully he needed to be to overcome Winkler and accomplish his goal. To nail the Salma Hyak Character. The kids loved the movie from beginning to end. We cheered, laughed, applauded, through out the film. And something very rare happened. We felt GREAT after seeing it. Usually after the cartoon movies or super hero movies I check the kids reaction to what they just watched. They usually have no interest in talking about what they just saw. But this movie had them talking and laughing, all the way home. They especially like the throw up scene. This really is an all time Great film.

Great film to sit back and enjoy a stream of non stop funny. It not so serious nature makes it enjoyable for all ages. We all know this long shot movie is pure fiction but if you came in for a serious film, this is a strike out. Go Watch!

I hadn't heard a lot about this movie which is too bad because parents are always looking for a clean, fun movie....this one has something for everyone! My 17 year old even enjoyed this one. I thought this movie had an uplifting story that could appeal and inspire everyone, it sends a message that we all need a little more of these days: when you see someone or a community that needs help....step in and do whatever you can to make things better!

I definitely was surprised at how much I enjoyed the movie. Had good message and not the harsh language. Little violent with the fighting but not extreme.
