If you thought writer-producer-actor Adam Sandler would never stoop lower than Little Nicky, here's the unwelcome proof that you were wrong.

Like being sat on by all your least favourite school bullies.

Smug and lazy comedy that barely raises a chuckle.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
August 26, 2010
A puerile extended in-joke between Adam Sandler and friends.

The male fantasy of cheerleader spouse, well-adjusted kids and expanding waistline.

Grown Ups is so tiresomely pointless you'll come out feeling a decade older than when you went in.

Sandler. Schneider. Rock. Spade. Hayek. Hang your heads in shame...

It is, literally, no laughing matter.

Any film that causes you to reappraise the awfulness of Couples Retreat has to be pretty bad.

Charmless, desperately unfunny "comedy" that could only have been worse if it had had Martin Lawrence in it.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5

The impressive abilities of this ensemble go underused in a clichéd comedy that stalls at nice and stupid on its way to profundity.
| Original Score: 3/5

Would you believe this is a remake of The Big Chill but with all the parts played by Adam Sandler's famous and/or infamous friends?
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4.0

Its embrace of the compromises involved in pursuing the American dream is a message designed to placate the masses, but it offers more of a message than most comedies manage to impart, which must count for something.

Despite itself, Grown Ups works as a star studded, silly comedy of the Adam Sandler variety.

Here, the audience is made to watch Adam Sandler's summer vacation video, which displays how much fun he had, and how little of that merriment and camaraderie translated to the screen.

Lazy is the word.

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 81/100

...a pervasively inconsequential piece of work that seems to exist solely because Adam Sandler wanted to spend some time with his friends.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

Dennis Dugan's loutish direction is well-suited to the material.

Summertime blahs with Grown-Ups.
