The title mainly leaves one wondering when Sandler will chose to finally grow up and stop starring in this ongoing series of terrible comedies.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
Grown Ups is cliched, predictable and full of immature and juvenile humor. The film recycles far too many jokes and it gets old real fast.
| Original Score: 5/10
Five forgettable characters reunite for a (lame) joke-filled weekend.
The second half of Grown Ups isn't good enough to dig its way out of the tremendous hole it's created for itself but it's far from the worse thing Sandler has ever made. Maybe in another 20 years he'll make something funny.
Surprisingly, amazingly, bafflingly uncomedic and unhilarious.
| Original Score: 1/5
If you thought writer-producer-actor Adam Sandler would never stoop lower than Little Nicky, here's the unwelcome proof that you were wrong.
| Original Score: 2/5
Even for a film that's rated PG-13, it's way too tame, it plays it way too safe and, worst of all, it really isn't that funny.
By the time this crazy cast of characters settles into a rental house by the lake, the story has nowhere left to go -- except exactly where you expect it to.
| Original Score: 1/4
These guys set out to make a movie where they could crack each other up. At this late date, they can't even manage that.
The market is now firmly established for the goofy, middle-aged bros-gone-wild genre
| Original Score: C-
It's puerile and aggressively stupid, but at least it's not cruel. And no one is holding a gun to your head. Adam Sandler isn't a criminal, he's just - like most of us - part of the problem.
| Original Score: 81/100
Grown Ups is so tiresomely pointless you'll come out feeling a decade older than when you went in.
Grown Ups is a pleasant, genial, good-hearted, sometimes icky comedy that's like spending a weekend with well-meaning people you don't want to see again any time real soon.
| Original Score: 2/4
An excruciating mess of gross-out humor, eww-inspiring vulgarity, and soppy sentimentality.
| Original Score: D
It's a tiny bit better than Couples Retreat, so that's good.
A puerile extended in-joke between Adam Sandler and friends.
It's a good thing the Sand-man made that remake of The Longest Yard a few years ago, because otherwise Grown Ups would stand out as the comedic mastermind's worst effort by far.
In this blend of sentimental comedy mixed with toilet humor, Sandler assembled members of his comic generation in what turns out to be an anemic tribute to middle age.
While there's plenty of flatulence, the movie's out of gas well before it's over.
