Director: Frank Coraci
Year Released: 2015
White Knife (Adam Sandler), who was raised by Native Americans, gets an unexpected visit from his biological father (Nick Nolte) who (apparently) needs his help, so White Knife gathers up five of his half-brothers (Taylor Lautner, Rob Schneider, Terry Crews, Luke Wilson and Jorge Garcia) to steal money for ol' Pop. As is typical with any Sandler-production, the jokes are unimaginative and puerile (oh boy, a burro that has explosive diarrhea), the cast is loaded but lost (regular Steve Buscemi appears as a barber/doctor, Vanilla Ice plays Mark Twain, David Spade is Custer) and the audience groans probably outweigh the guffaws, but what do you expect for a movie aimed at the adolescent male crowd? As I wrote about the slightly more creative (relatively speaking) A Million Ways to Die in the West, the Western parody "bar" was set (again, relatively speaking) forty years ago by Mel Brooks with Blazing Saddles, and nothing released since then has even come close. The most ridiculous part: I think Lautner may actually have a future in comedy.
