Product Description

Just because you grow older doesn’t mean you have to grow up! Comedy superstars Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock, David Spade and Rob Schneider are at their hilarious and outrageous best playing childhood friends who reunite one holiday weekend to relive the good old days. It doesn’t matter that these five guys are now respectable businessmen, husbands and fathers. Once they get back together, nothing is going to stop these kids-at-heart from having the time of their adult lives. From the people who brought you "CLICK", comes this hilarious and heartwarming film that proves men will be boys.

From Amazon.co.uk

Adam Sandler and his frequent costars (Chris Rock, Kevin James, David Spade, and Rob Schneider) grope blindly for maturity in the genial comedy Grown Ups. Five childhood pals are drawn back together after the death of their former basketball coach; over the course of a Fourth of July weekend, they--along with their wildly attractive wives (played by Salma Hayek, Maria Bello, Maya Rudolph) and precocious children--loosen up, try to introduce their kids to the simple pleasures of nature, air some dirty laundry, and rediscover their friendship. In other words, it's a fairly formulaic comedy that veers awkwardly from gags (ranging from slapstick to mean-spiritedness) to sentiment (ranging from sappy to not entirely sappy). Its appeal will depend entirely on your feelings about Sandler and the rest of the gang--if you like this bunch of lugs (in all their prolonged adolescent glory), then you'll like this movie. If you don't, you won't. Everyone's in relaxed but good form; affable is more the comic goal than razor sharp. Expect gags about being fat, being old, prolonged breast-feeding, ogling hot chicks, flatulence, etc. There's some role reversal: it's the women, particularly Hayek as a type-A fashion designer, who need to learn the eternal cinematic lesson that family is more important than work. Featuring guest appearances from Tim Meadows, Colin Quinn, and Steve Buscemi. --Bret Fetzer

Regardless of whether you find him funny or not, Adam Sandler has indisputably managed his career about as well as any comic actor of his generation. He's always known exactly when to deliver the kind of formulaic romp that made him a movie star. Although he does very occasionally stretch himself by acting in films by gifted writer/directors, Sandler retreats to exceedingly familiar territory with Grown Ups.

Executive produced and co-written by Sandler, Grown Ups is arguably the quintessential example of a movie that's far less fun to watch than it obviously was to make. The five leads are very comfortable together, and while their chemistry is appealing, the story has no narrative drive. They aren't playing characters as much as they're trying to come up with the best punch lines, but without a solid story to work from the jokes can't be anything other than throwaway one-liners, it's not exactly revelatory to hear insults about how fat Kevin James is or how big Adam Sandler's ears are. And while each of them has one or two zingers that get chuckles, it's David Spade who actually comes off the best by toning down the sarcasm from his usual 9 to about a 4, and still outsmarting everyone in the cast by a wide margin.

Sadly, the very talented female cast, including Maya Rudolph, Maria Bello, and Salma Hayek, have little to do other than show off their killer bodies in such a way that the film maintains its 12 rating. In fact the movie's biggest bummer is that it treats all the women like problems that would be solved if only they'd listen to their men, or hotties worthy of being ogled, or old and therefore a proper target for cruel barbs. It's not that these are bad performers, they're just stuck in a lazy script, assuming there was much of a script to begin with.

Format: DVD
The movie starts out with 5 kids who look like the adult stars winning the city championship in basketball in 1978 at the buzzer. 30 years later they reunite at Coach "Buzzer's" funeral and opt to spend a weekend together at a lake house with their families. Three of them have "normal" families that don't appreciate them. A fourth is married to a woman twice his age and a fifth is still single.

The humor consists mostly at exchanging barbs and zingers, making fun of people who are fat, short,ugly, or old. There is a sophomoric running joke of the 4 year old that still breast feeds (even in public) because the liberal permissive parents can't say no. This joke could have been left out. (Sometimes less is more.) After spending a few hours outdoors, the big five notices that their families are all inside in their electronic world. They go inside and force the family to enjoy the great outdoors with expected results. Eventually the team they beat for the championship as kids challenges them to another basketball game because Robin Williams didn't gross us out enough.

The movie ends on a warm and fuzzy note as many inane comedies do, teaching us a lesson on the importance of family and friends, but not overly warm and fuzzy. I thought Salma Hayek did an excellent job considering her poorly written lines and overall weak script.

Grown ups is a hilarious comedy with one of the biggest all star acts for a comedy the size IMO. The film revolves around 5 individuals who were in a basketball team as young boys; after their coach dies they decide to get together & rent the beach house that they went to when they were younger. Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, Kevin James, David Spade & Rob Schneider head up the cast.

The film is about the 5 guys trying to get back their youth while enjoying family time, Adam Sandler's character must try & get his kids to act normal & stop acting like the spoiled Hollywood children that they have become. Kevin James must deal with a daughter who won't listen to her parents and a "48 month" son who is still breastfeeding. Chris Rock is a housewife whose wife is pregnant & has an abusive mother-in-law. Rob Schneider is dating a very old woman whom is mistaken for this mother & also has a couple of extremely hot daughters he must try to keep away from David Spade. Spade has no worries, no family, no kids, and no responsibility, quite often says inappropriate things & still enjoys getting hammered.

Any comedy fan will love this film as it features 5 top class comedy actors.

It's been hard work recently watching modern comedies. They seem to be getting smuttier and dirtier than even 10 yrs ago.
Usually if we're watching a comedy with the kids it's a bit like Russian Roulette as to just how much bad language and sex there will be in it. Fortunatley, Grown Up's turned out to be a great, clean comedy.
No sex scenes, and no bad language (a 12 certificate doesn't seem much of a guarantee these days).
The story itself is very simple about 5 friends who as kids were basketball champions. They reunite at the Coach's funeral, and spend time having fun together.
There are a lot of laughs in this film, more than once I was laughing out loud, usually to some small comment or bit of goofing around.
Great family fun.

I think this movie is funny. We watched this a the cinema and when we got back I pre ordered it here on amazon. Being a person who grew up outdoors I can relate to alot of the events in this movie. I can also see how to todays technolgy makes children stay inside but given the oppotunity to to something fun I think children choose outdoors anu day. I like the whole story of being so close with friends at school. Not seeing them for a while and when they do meet up it seems like it was just yesterday. Great movie. Adam Sandlar and co were brilliant. Really is worth sitting down to watch for me over and over.
