LOVEFiLM Review: Grown Ups (2010)

Thirty years after graduating from high school, five former basketball teammates gather at the lake house where they celebrated their biggest victory to mourn the passing of their late coach. Over the course of the Fourth of July weekend, the five friends realize that just because they’ve all grown up and started families doesn’t mean that they’ve lost that old spark. Adulthood is what you make of it, and no one at the lake house is eager to be the grown-up of the gang. Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, Kevin James, David Spade, and Rob Schneider star in a film written by Sandler and Fred Wolf, and directed by Dennis Dugan (I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry, You Don’t Mess with the Zohan). Maria Bello, Salma Hayek, and Maya Rudolph co-star

Wow, what a pile shit this was. Seriously, I didn’t think it would of been this bad. As I was watching it I was thinking, “when does it get funny?”. The most I could ever get was a slight smirk but that was it.

The thing that surprises me how some fantastic names are attached to this like Salma Hayek and Steve Buscemi. A career low for them both, and Chris Rock. Not Kevin James though as he is a terrible ‘comic actor’. Everything about it seemed so try hard with jokes that it felt embarrassing.

Give this a miss!
