Cast

Nicholson is as versatile as they get, and he proves it again in this fantastic comedy. Sandler continues to do what he does best, and he utilizes his typical set of friends around him in the like of Jonathan Loughran, Allen Covert, and Kevin Nealon. Marisa Tomei, Luis Guzman, Kurt Fuller, Woody Harrelson, John C. Reilly, and the hilarious John Turturro round out this great cast of characters.

Soundtrack/Score

Tracks from Blondie, Jimmy Buffet, Van Halen, The Bee Gees, The Rolling Stones, Carlos Santana, Filter, The Who, and Louis Prima. Jeeze. This movie runs the gambit. Solid choices, and the additional singing of the West Side Story song by the cast throughout the movie help give this movie a high score.
