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.
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

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.Read more ›
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.
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.
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.
Our gruesome fivesome play a bunch of long-time friends who reunite after their school Coach dies. Movie producer Lenny (Sandler) rents out a lakeside cabin and all four families (plus a bachelor) cram in. The film is all about how people grow apart, but if they take a closer look perhaps they can appreciate what they have more. This cheesy message perfectly sums up the feel of the film, it's all "ah shucks" and "gee whiz", but with an added layer of filth.
Although past their prime, all 5 main comedians do a decent job in `Grown Ups'. They all play versions of characters they have played before and are able slot into the roles easily. As they are all friends in real life the script becomes an improvised form of one-upmanship and this is the saving grace of the film. You get the feeling that the cast and crew are having fun at our expense, but at least they bring a few laughs (unlike several recent Sandler movies). I ended up not loving the film, but having a decent enough time that I would call it Adam Sandler's best film since `The Longest Yard' back in 2005. If he keeps things simple and keeps them funny, Sandler is still watchable.
