The film brought to Sandler one of the most prestigious awards in his career – MTV Movie Award for the best fight, and he was nominated on MTV Movie Awards for the best comic role and on Kid's Choice Awards for the best film. The film got 41 million dollars during the rollout period, this fact exceeded expectations of the filmmakers.
Those who like Adam Sandler's style, will discover many strengths, that make you love this happy-naive film about professional golf, and those who dislike his style, will just have fun.
For better or worse, this expectation did not materialize and Sandler performed his best comic roles in many wonderful and very funny comedies in future years. Possible, they became less «idiotic», than his early films, but they maintained the charm of his unique style.
Getting out of his usual role, Sandler demonstrated an unusual acting profundity... His acting has a mystery, strength, and passion. And probably, he will never take part in his stupid comedies?
