The Do-Over (2016)

Director: Steven Brill

Stars: Adam Sandler, David Spade, Paula Patton, Nick Swardson, Sean Astin, Luis Guzmán, Michael Chiklis

Two down-on-their-luck guys decide to fake their own deaths and start over with new identities, only to find the people they're pretending to be are in even deeper trouble.

This movie was more silly than it was anything else, but it is also a type of an action movie. This does not really know where it belongs. It is trying too hard to be action and funny, but it is failing at both.

The cast for the movie was decent. They did a good job in their roles, but it all just fell flat. Adam Sandler and David Spade more like they would never speak to one another in the movie, than be old friends. It just did not work well for the movie. It was just too opposite.

The story alone seems a bit overdone. I mean, I would runaway or kill someone if they put me in that type of situation, so it makes it harder to enjoy the story. I just did not like the story at all. It seemed like something you would have seen on a sitcom in the mid 80's or a movie of the week from then.

This is not a very good movie. They have both be in better movies than this, so watch those movies instead. I say skip it. I watched it, so you don't have to.
