My Review:
Being a fan of Adam Sandler and Chris Rock this film was something in which I just had to see however wasn't really that impressed with unfortunately.

The Week Of is about a father who tries to make his daughter's wedding perfect however with barely any money and everything going wrong will the day be able to still go ahead?

I liked that this film showed which day it was before the wedding so that the audience could fully see the timeline up to the wedding itself and how the father's don't particularly get on and feel that the wedding should be better due to the man's father having money and would have been able to have the wedding no problem instead of sticking with a cheaper wedding which the father of the woman is paying for. I thought this film had a few laughs however mostly from Chris Rock rather than anyone else and I did think that the ending was rather emotional and sweet which I did like about the movie overall.

However, this film was really repetitive all the way through which did make me rather bored of the movie and it was really slow to get into the movie itself which I wasn't a fan of. It also seemed like a lot of the jokes were really cheap and not that funny as a result of it which I did find rather disappointing as a fan of Adam Sandler's. The Week Of also seemed to have one character which was out of a psych ward and it seemed like they were cushioning him too much and mocking people with mental health issues and those with physical disabilities which did make me rather annoyed with the movie.

Overall, it was an okay movie but not a film I could see me watching a lot. This film would be good for those who like Chris Rock and like slow movies and want a really sweet ending. However, this is not one of the best Adam Sandler movies to date and one I was rather disappointed with.

My Rating: 3/5

Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k4F3Sn-Xzzo My Review: Wanting a style of film I don't usually watch but do enjoy I decided to watch the stalker movie that is My Teacher, My Obsession  which is based on an English teacher who starts at a new school. However, when one of the students gets obsessed with him she will do anything to be with him including secluding him from everyone else.

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
