That’s a dis­grace. US, 108 min

The Advertiser - SA Weekend - - FILM -

This is the worst thing Adam Sandler has ever put his name to. And even those with only a pass­ing ac­quain­tance with his work will know that means it must be in­dus­trial-strength bad. It’s not the non-stop mo­roni­cism that gets you. It’s the racist asides, the misog­y­nis­tic plot­ting, and the des­per­ate at­tempts to find the funny in such non-hi­lar­i­ous top­ics as in­cest and teacher-stu­dent sex crimes. There will not be a more ter­ri­ble film in 2012. Or per­haps, this decade.
