Good for a one time watch
Dumb and slapstick but I was laughing throughout. Go in with zero expectations and have a good time.
WHAT IT”S ABOUT Two families, one wealthy, the other working class, come together for a wedding in the Adam Sandler comedy “The Week Of.” It’s Sandler’s fourth film for Netflix, and it boasts some major talent in co-star Chris Rock and director Robert Smigel (“Saturday Night Live”). All told, “The Week Of” holds more promise than such previous Sandler-Netflix comedies as the Western “The Ridiculous 6” and the action-comedy “The Do-Over.”
MY SAY Sandler plays Kenny Lustig, a small-time contractor whose daughter is marrying the son of Dr. Kirby Cordice (Rock), a celebrity heart surgeon. Kenny insists on paying for the wedding as a father traditionally should, even though Kirby could spend 10 times the money without batting an eye. As Kenny cuts every corner to scrape together a wedding and hide his screw-ups from Kirby, the big day begins to shape up as a certain disaster.
That’s a sturdy if none-too-original setup for a comedy, and you might think the Sandler-Rock combo would have enough natural chemistry to make it work. (Even their subpar “Grown-Ups” movies had their moments.) Instead, minimal effort seems to have gone into this project. With its slapdash script (by Sandler and Smigel) and bare-bones production, “The Week Of” feels less like a proper movie and more like an overlong, unfunny webisode.
