Nick and Audrey (Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston) are headed to Europe for a cheap anniversary holiday when they are invited to spend their holiday aboard a luxury yacht, courtesy of Viscount Charles Cavendish (Luke Evans).. While on the yacht, Charle’s rich uncle is murdered and Nick and Audrey find themselves in the middle of a murder mystery. There were limited guests on the yacht, and one of them is a killer. And when others start turning up dead, it’s clear that all of their lives are in danger! It sounds like an Agatha Christie novel, and this movie definitely plays homage to Christie, but it’s played strictly for laughs. I personally find Adam Sandler very hit and miss (more miss than hit) but I really enjoyed this film.

Kenny Lustig’s (Adam Sandler) daughter and Kirby Cordice’s (Chris Rock) son are getting married and in the week leading up to the wedding, the two men and their families have to spend all their time together. Tensions rise, tempers flare and things get messy.

*************************************************************************************

Year of release: 2017

Director: Robert Smigel

Writers: Adam Sandler, Robert Smigel

Main cast: Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, Steve Buscemi, Rachel Dratch, Allison Strong, Roland Buck III, Jim Barone

*************************************************************************************

Genre: Comedy

Highlights: Very few! Steve Buscemi

Lowlights: The whole thing. I love Steve Buscemi and I love Chris Rock, but even they couldn’t save this one. I don’t generally find Adam Sandler funny but thought with the rest of the cast it may be worth a go. It all feels disjointed and every attempt at a joke falls pretty flat.

Overall: I’ll give this 4 out of 10 because some of Rock’s scenes without Sandler were quite funny, and Steve Buscemi made the most of his role. But generally, I’d say don’t bother.
