IMO this is the best of the three HT movies. It has enough adult humor and poking fun of modern and family life to keep adults entertained, while not being inappropriate or scary for youngsters. IMO the first movie was boring and the new one, well, I'll wait to review that when it gets released. The kids also thought it was very funny. Great movie for the parent of small children and great for Halloween. I usually can't stand Adam Sandler either, but he is bearable in these movies, even quite funny at times as he was when he first began his comedy career.
