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

Product Description

Grown Ups Adam Sandler writes, directs and stars in this comedy centred on the reunion of five former school friends. 30 years after graduating from high school, five former basketball teammates - Lenny (Sandler), Eric (Kevin James), Kurt (Chris Rock), Marcus (David Spade) and Rob (Rob Schneider) - gather for the funeral of their late coach over the Fourth of July holiday weekend at the same lakeside house where they celebrated a championship victory many years before. As the weekend goes on, the friends come to realise that just because they have all grown older doesnt necessarily mean that they have to grow up. Grown Ups 2 Comedy sequel starring Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock and David Spade. Having greatly enjoyed the reunion which took place with his high school buddies and their families in Grown Ups (2010), Lenny Feder (Sandler) makes the fateful decision to move his family back to his hometown, where Eric (James), Kurt (Rock) and Marcus (Spade) are raising their own children. However, with unforeseen hazards including forgotten bullies, erratic bus drivers and drunken cops, home may not be the lost paradise the passage of time has rendered it in Lennys mind. The chaos reaches fever pitch on the last day of school, when it seems certain that the kids will once again be showing the adults how to behave...

1.0 out of 5 stars DID THIS SAY COMEDY? 14 Oct 2012
By BAZ316
Format:DVD
I'll be honest,i couldn't get to the end of this,i just didn't get it.
The jokes i found desperate,the acting really wasn't great,the plot was dull and the whole thing just falls flat.
I tried to find the jokes funny but i could hardly raise a smile.
Grown men behaving childish can sometimes be funny,but this was just stupid and waste of time for all concerned.
I can't be bothered to get into the plot,well the makers of the film couldn't be bothered to be funny.

5.0 out of 5 stars What A Relief 25 Jun 2011
By Chris Morse VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

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.

1.0 out of 5 stars So not funny 22 Jan 2014
By Jade
Format:DVD
I watched this with my friends who have it on blu ray, to be honest I don't know why they bothered...the film isn't even funny. It's corny and stupid. I mean, my friends find it funny and laugh whenever something "funny" happens, but I don't see how it's even funny, I've seen funnier...but that's just my opinion.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good laugh 11 Oct 2011
Format:DVD
I've enjoyed quite a few of Sandler's movies, and this is well worth watching. I know some people don't 'get him' but you just have to forget about being a critic and simply enjoy the laughs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Top family film 16 Sep 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is in the same genre as Happy Gilmore and 50 1st dates.. luckily Happy Gilmore only exists to fuel the other films, a very good filmthat became an instant family favourite in our house. both my sons quote from it constantly, but I may have to hurt them if they describe my cooking as Road kill again..
