Grown Ups 2

Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock and David Spade attempt to revisit their highschool glory years once more in the comedy sequel to 2010's box office hit Grown Ups.

Lenny (Sandler) has relocated his family back to the small town where he grew up, and this time around, the grown ups are the ones learning lessons from their kids on a day full of surprises: the last day of school. Salma Hayek, Steve Buscemi and Maya Rudolph also return.

Grown Ups 2 / Reviews

With his “golden age” seeming like a bygone era – Billy Madison, Happy Gilmore, I even like The Waterboy – and his brief-but-bold dramatic turns feeling more like cliff notes in his career – Punch Drunk Love, Spanglish – I want to be able to like Adam Sandler again. But with his recent releases under Happy Madison Productions, like Jack and Jill and statutory rape comedy That’s My Boy, my seed of respect for the man remains unfertilised. Appropriately, Grown Ups 2 continues that arrested development.

Among the slackest, laziest, least movie-like movies released by a major studio in the last decade.

An equally shameless, just-as shoddy, no-less depressing sprawl of 'life lessons' and fat gags.

In the first five minutes, a deer walks into the star's bedroom and urinates on his face. It's all downhill from there.

This is pap, plain and simple: scattered raunch-lite devoid of emotional resonance.

Throughout, gags are cartoonishly broad and afforded so little time for setup and delivery we seem to be watching less a story than a catalog of tossed-out material.

Slothful, indulgent sequel that sees a once-great screen comedian hit self-inflicted Sandlergeddon.
