New In Theaters Review: Grown Ups

When five friends who all played basketball together as kids, find out their former coach has passed away, they decide to reunite at the cabin where they celebrated their championship win as kids. They are all adults now and they bring their families with them to have a Fourth of July weekend together to catch up and continue where they left off so many years ago. They may have all gotten older, but it doesn’t mean they have grown up.

This comedy contained five very funny comedians, so the story was relatively secondary. It was basically just the five of them acting juvenile and silly the whole movie. Now I’m not saying that’s a bad thing. The movie was funny, but I guess I just thought it would be funnier with all of these comedians in one movie. If you’ve ever been a fan of Adam Sandler, then your love this movie because it’s just like all of his other comedies, complete with his usual guest appearances of comedic friends. All of the comedians in this movie had their share of funny scenes. Adam Sandler as Lenny Feder the wealthiest of the group, Chris Rock as Kurt McKenzie the stay at home dad, Kevin James as Eric Lamonsoff the overweight one of the bunch, David Spade as Marcus Higgins the guy who can’t commit to a lasting relationship, and Rob Schneider as the guy who loves much older woman.

All in all this movie did make me laugh and I wasn’t disappointed, being I am a fan of Adam Sandler’s style of movies. I give it 2 grown-ups out of 4. It’s was what I expected and nothing more. The movie is runs 1 hour and 34mins. It was rated PG-13 for crude material including suggestive references, language and some male rear nudity. It was written by Adam Sandler and Fred Wolf. It was directed by Dennis Dugan. The movie was produced by Happy Madison Productions. It was distributed by Sony Pictures Releasing.

You know you’ve found a good friend, when you have had them as a friend since childhood. Ezo
