Went to the Moveis the other day to see this and I was very very pleased. I read some reviews and I was leary it was going to be disappointing, but I was actually a little surprised as too how funny and good this movie was. I really laughed my ass off. Heck, my wife was even laughing her ass off and she laughs at nothing!
I've seen the original a half a dozen times and love it, but this new version of the film definaltey brings more jokes to the table as well as more good ole fun!
I definately recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys a good comedy. Adam Sandler is of course his usual self, but the characters around him make this movie great!

hmph...I guess I'll have to stop looking at curse word as they are and start hearing them as something else.
Thanks for clearing me up. I was confused. I sure am glad that curse words are only curse words if you look at them that way...great way of thinking.
Aron probably means it's the meaning/context behind the actual words that can be hurtful, not the word itself for example, the word "nigger" - is it hurtful coming out of an inner city black person, or does it have more of a negative connotation when some redneck KKK white guy says it? - also, I think he's saying that curse words can be useful since they are "strong", powerful words.
Although I do understand your frustration if you choose to keep those words away from your children's ears...keep in mind that PG-13 does allow the F-Word in limited use. PG does not. I'm not sure how many times they allow the F word before they deem it "R", though.
PG-13 - Parents Strongly Cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13. This signifies that the film rated may be inappropriate for pre-teens. Parents should be especially careful about letting their younger children attend. Rough or persistent violence is absent; sexually-oriented nudity is generally absent; some scenes of drug use may be seen; one use of the harsher sexually derived words may be heard.
PG - Parental Guidance Suggested. Some material may not be suitable for children. This signifies that the film rated may contain some material parents might not like to expose to their young children - material that will clearly need to be examined or inquired about before children are allowed to attend the film. Explicit sex scenes and scenes of drug use are absent; nudity, if present, is seen only briefly, horror and violence do not exceed moderate levels.
R - Restricted-Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian (age varies in some locations). This signifies that the rating board has concluded that the film rated contains some adult material. Parents are urged to learn more about the film before taking their children to see it. An R may be assigned due to, among other things, a film's use of language, theme, violence, sex or its portrayal of drug use.

NC-17 - No One 17 and Under Admitted. This signifies that the rating board believes that most American parents would feel that the film is patently adult and that children age 17 and under should not be admitted to it. The film may contain explicit sex scenes, an accumulation of sexually-oriented language, or scenes of excessive violence. The NC-17 designation does not, however, signify that the rated film is obscene or pornographic.
