This film starts off with the a middle school winning a basketball game. Introducing the characters as children. This is the Coach’s first and only win, so this is a special victory for him. Years later, Coach passes away and the members of the team come together to honor him at his funeral. Lenny Feder (Adam Sandler), the town’s biggest success because he’s an accomplished publicist in Los Angeles, CA. Eric Lamonsoff (Kevin James), the sofa king’s associate. Kurt McKenzie (Chris Rock) the loving house husband. Marcus Higgins (David Spade) the trouble maker. Last but not least, Rob Hilliard (Rob Schnieder) the hopeless romantic for elderly women. With the team back together with their families, Feder decides to rent a cabin and reminence about the good ole’ days. Will the vacation bring them close together again?

Review:

This film has it’s moments of funny and other moments of trying too hard. The taunting the characters acted to one another was over the top because they prolonged the joke, especially Sandler’s character. It’s never a good idea to have more than two comedians on one film, because they all want to get in their funny moments. To which becomes over the top and appears as trying too hard to be funny. The locations of the film were nice to look at, filled with peaceful family atmosphere. All in all, I would not view this film again.

  1. I have to disagree with this review on Grown ups. I enjoyed every bit of it. Here we have a bunch of men who come together after attending their old basketball coaches funeral. Comedy may not be everyone’s flavour but if you bring a group of comedians like Chris Rock, Kevin James, David Spade, Adam Sandler and Rob Schneider together, God only knows whats going to happen! but i know one thing for sure….its going to be a bag of laughs!
    In this review we do not know who directed the movie, but we do have the main actors. I also feel that most aspects of Grown Ups has not been brought to this review to be evaluated as it should. I myself would watch it again.

    Until next time, see you at the movies!

  2. Though I felt the movie did have it’s moments in which the comedy was trying a bit to hard to be funny, I still feel that the truly funny moments outweighed the less then funny ones. Over all though, a decent review. I do agree with you about having more then two high profile comedians in one movie. At times it works, while other times it just results in overkill.
