As disposable and forgettable as its 2010 predecessor...

It's easy to be critical of films which have no aim other than to entertain, but if you're half way to Sandler's juvenile, rather sexist mentality you will find more comedy highlights than you'll be expecting.

No human being possesses the imaginative power to sufficiently lower his or her expectations to anticipate the sheer laziness of this putrid ensemble comedy.

This Happy Madison remedial-school version of 'This Is 40' is as insane and dumbfounding and worthy of WTF mock-cult status as 'The Room' or 'Manos, Hands of Fate,' even if it did earn $42 million its first weekend.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

The simplest way to put it is that if you liked the first Grown Ups, you will also like this one: it's an equally shameless, just-as shoddy, no-less depressing sprawl of 'life lessons' and fat gags.

These movies are about four friends -- played by comedians -- remembering what it was like to be young. How much better for an audience would it be if they remembered what it was like to make comedy?

The script feels aimless and desperate, even by its own aggressively sophomoric standards.

Sandler and his pals are in the enviable position of having the muscle to do their thing for fun and profit.

The Land of Lazy can crown a new king because with Grown Ups 2 Adam Sandler has officially nabbed the throne.

Adam Sandler has made some warm and funny movies but this one is a mess from start to finish.

It's plotless, pointless, soulless, but worse than all of those things.... it's just NOT FUNNY!!!

Full of coarse excuses for humor and cruelty, 'Grown Ups 2' literally spews bile at its audience.

Clearly this is the film to see if you have a long standing grievance about the way deer have been mistreated by humans and long to see them take their revenge.

Just when it seemed like it couldn't get any worse for Adam Sandler, Grown Ups 2 underperforms its predecessor in every way imaginable.

Sandler could very well have scribbled the script on the back of the cheque he and his co-writers were given in advance to produce a sequel, any sequel - just a movie with the number two in it - which happens to be the number of times you will laugh.

There are NOT enough adjectives in the English language to describe this vile, disgusting excuse for a movie. If I can stop even one person from paying to see this crap, then I have done my job!

"Grown Ups 2"... will be hard to top as worst film of 2013, and is an instant contender for most worthless movie of the decade.

Sandler and his writing partners jump from one crude gag to the next without a trace of a plot or narrative sense. This would be OK if any of the jokes were remotely funny, but they're mostly retreads of the bad jokes from the first movie.
