Stories about a busy architects with a wacky secretaries were pretty much done with Hey Dad, as far as I’m concerned. This movie is all about negotiating a balance between work and home, business and personal, and the consequences of getting it wrong.
The supporting cast is excellent – Christopher Walken, with the fluffiest hair since Joel got shaved, the Fonz (Henry Winkler), Marge Simpson (Julie Kavner), Kate Beckinsale (not in leather or vinyl for a change) and the Hoff. Oh, and momentarily, Sophie Monk. The story is really about Sandler’s character, however, so he is in every scene.
I went to see it as a fundraiser for International Teams, so I guess that justifies it. But feel welcome to give it a miss, or at least wait until video, unless you’re a big Sandler fan.
