There's almost no plot, and loads of schmaltz, but the hidden metaphors and cast chemistry makes this a worthwhile effort.

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?

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

Adam Sandler presents a sweetly endearing movie about relationships. The topper is some scenes are really funny!

An Adam Sandler movie with a heart? Almost! This is no Punch Drunk Love or Spanglish but waft aside the flatulence and there is an adult film crying to grow up.

A goofy summer movie, quickly forgotten but fun enough while it lasts.

While the plot is sparse, Sandler and his crew produce enough laughs and memorable moments to keep the audience thoroughly entertained.

It's a crude and decent-hearted outing.

These are funny people, and the movie is loosely structured enough to showcase all of their talents.
| Original Score: 2.5/4

There's abundant lunacy to keep slapstick fans laughing even with a subdued Sandler front and center.

Maybe the summer swelter is melting my brain, but Adam Sandler and four other showboats desperately needing a hit had me laughing at Grown Ups more than expected. Let's give credit where credit is due. It's not the heat; it's the stupidity.

Lo and behold, Grown Ups turns out to be the funniest thing in which Sandler has appeared in years.

Diverting enough to get by, Grown Ups is Adam Sandler growing up -- but not too much.

Finding Grown Ups funny necessitates that one finds it inherently marvelous when fat men talk about eating, old women describe having sexual desires, and old fat women break wind.

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.

The title mainly leaves one wondering when Sandler will chose to finally grow up and stop starring in this ongoing series of terrible comedies.
