A very nice movie, lots of laughs. It is a little flat at times when the four guys are sitting around talking trying to say something funny, but for most of the movie it is funny.
A horrible comedy that contains so many potty jokes, they may have wrote nthe screenplay on toliet paper. And that what you get when you watch "Grown Ups." It came from Happy Madison production, which made some of the worst movies ever made. The last good movie from Happy Madison was "Bedtime Stories" way back in early 2008. Thje plot sounded like "The Big Chill," but it could been retitled "The Big Spill," referring to a lot of pee jokes. Five members of championship basketball championship team from 1978 are reuntied after their beloved coach dies. (Another compasion:"That Championship Season") Each one had a family and kids. The Adam Sandler's kids in this movie were cruel. Maya Rudolkph played a rehash of a pregant woman in the much better "Away We Go." David Spade is married to a elderly woman. And the dog won't stop barking. He has a funny bark. The family group are unlikable. When they're not paying tribute to their coach, they all acting like stupid little kids,And there's not much to like. I didn't like "Grown Ups" and I wasn't shock. Adam Sandler contines to assume that audiences are willing to see anything. They're smarter than that.
Loved, Loved, Loved this movie! I will definitely buy it when it's available, in fact I already have it pre-ordered. What a great combination of comedic actors. I love silly humor and that's what these guys are all about. But there was also a great story line to go along with it. I go to the movies for entertainment, not to have think about a plot too hard, and this movie really delivered!!
