The Adam Sandler rep company have never been big on bringing realism to the screen but they've taken it to a whole new level here, manifested through a complex screenplay by Sandler and Robert Smigel, a longtime SNL writer who appears onscreen as a stereo store employee that presents an offensive and outrageous story that like some of Mel Brooks' finest work, offers something to offend everyone and I promise you that before the closing credits, most viewers will find something in this film offensive.
