Just to be clear, Adam Sandler is parodying the film genre, but Kevin James is just making fun of the animals. :frowning:

I’m confused… usually a ‘spoof’ has jokes… did I just miss them?

Too many other people have actually done this well.

Yeah, Ze Frank wipes the floor with this. Actual information about real animals and utterly hilarious.

Do they make good pets? This might be just what I need to round out my mixed magical flock. My tiny giraffe needs a playmate.

<Sigh!> It’s Adam Sandler’s work, so of course. He’s seldom as funny as he thinks he is.

Can’t believe I’ve been missing out on his whole series of the Sound Guy. These are awesome.

A fitting application of Kevin James’ comedic talent.

This could have been a lot funnier.

I really enjoyed Cracked’s take on this from several years ago with their wildly funny “Marvels of the Science” series on YouTube.

I’m not a Sandler fan, but he was excellent in Paul Anderson’s Punch-Drunk Love.

May I recommend to commenters wanting a funnier nature documentary, look for Stephen Fry in “shagged by a rare parrot” (the show was called “Last Chance to See”). One of my go-to mood lifters.
