They were best friends 30 years ago, now they're reuniting and they're all grown up... or are they? Join Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock and Rob Schneider in this chaotic comedy for some old-fashioned fun as they meet each other's families, relive the glory days and revive old connections. In the tradition of The Big Chill, five childhood friends (Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock, David Spade and Rob Schneider) reunite after 30 years to attend the funeral of their beloved youth basketball coach over the Fourth of July weekend. They all stay at the late coach's lake house with their families in tow. Comedy ensues as they relive old times, tease each other, and try to show their kids how to have fun the old fashion way. The hilarious reunion shows them not only how different their lives have become, but how much they still have in common.

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.

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 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.

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.

This is so lame, it relies on slapstick to make you laugh, Adam Sandler isn't even funny anymore, nor is anyone else in the cast. Don't bother!!!!!!

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.
