The second act, that’s what the depth comes in.

原本以為《中坑同學會》( Grown Ups ) 會是一齣無聊的胡鬧喜劇,導演 Dennis Dugan 前作《特務卡啦蘇》 (You Don’t Mess with the Zohan )  粗鄙不文種族岐視,並非一般人受得了的重口味。

《中坑同學會》骨子裡仍有導演的咸咸濕濕,賤賤格格的心態,整體還算乾淨,雖然家家有本難諗的經,但肯定家庭的價值。人到中年,五位小學摯友,因籃球教練的喪禮,30年後難得一次的 Reunion ,各人際遇不同,但友誼未減,別理那些人人都有的中年失落,只知友愛長存,才是最重要的事 — 輕鬆豁達版的《山水又相逢》(The Big Chill)。

偶爾還有寫得不錯感性對白:

(Glora) :

Life can be difficult sometimes.

It gets bumpy what with family and kids, and things not going exactly like you planned.

But that’s what makes it interesting.

In life, the first act, always exciting.

The second act, that’s what the depth comes in.

人生有時坎坷,當你成家立室,有兒有女,倍感生活顛簸,但苦中有樂。人生的第一幕通常精彩,因為年青,了無牽掛,第二幕方見真章,才是對一個中年人的歷練。
