Grown Ups (film review)

Film: Grown Ups
Year: 2010
Genre: Comedy
Director: Dennis Dugan
Starring: Adam Sandler, Salma Hayek, Kevin James
About: After their high school basketball coach passes away, five good friends and former teammates reunite for a Fourth of July holiday weekend

My Review:
Wanting some comedy to watch and something I hadn't seen in ages I saw that Grown Ups was on Netflix and couldn't resist giving it a watch.

The film is about a group of friends who are reunited because of the death of their old basketball coach so decide to hire the cabin next to the river so that they could have a weekend together to catch up and the children could get to know each other. As this happens they realise that the children don't know what to do without technology and start to try and bring them back to being children while bringing out the children in themselves as well. However, when an apposing team who they beat as children wants a rematch some thirty years later will they play the game?

I found this film a really good watch and it did make me laugh, which was my intention when walking into this movie. I feel it also has a family for everyone wither it is the single man who is by himself, the big Hollywood family who although slightly grounded seems to be really snobby, a hippy family who is really into nature and a couple of others. I thought this film was good for a quick laugh and something which is really easy to watch and follow the story line of.

I would recommend this movie to those who would like a relaxing comedy film to watch and can have a laugh without having to really think into anything.

My Rating: 4/5

Sahara (film review) *contains spoilers*

Film: Sahara Year: 2017 Genre: Animation, Adventure, Comedy Directed By: Pierre Core Starring: Omar Sy, Louane Emera, Franck Gastambide About:  A young cobra and his scorpion best friend go on a journey across the Sahara desert to save a new-found love Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z3IRkT9JsqM My Review: Having a movie day I came across Sahara when on Netflix and having no expectations about this film and also not knowing what it was about I thought that it would be the perfect film to blog about. I did think that this was a cute adventure movie but would be better suited to a younger audience than myself. I found that this film was really sweet that the snake wanted to go across the desert in order to find a snake in which he found he felt a connection with even though they were different kinds and also from different worlds. I also thought by having the girls brother being a drug addict and struggling with wanting more drugs and wanting to leave his sister w

I love how this film although being about football and being something I am not interested in brings it to an enjoyable place for me as well as having the comedy and romance side to keep me fully entertained. Having the film show how the girls team was cut from Viola's school and showing how she just wanted to play and would have played on the b
