Few of the characters' actions make any sense, be it in the context of Hollywood clichés, real life, or anything even resembling reality.

It's a shame how lazy and pointless Grown Ups 2 is.

Grown Ups 2 is the culmination and epitome of laziness not just for Sandler, his friends, or director Dennis Dugan, but comedy as a genre.

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

The best thing I can say about Grown Ups 2 is that Rob Schneider is not in it.

"Grown Ups 2" takes its rightful place in the pantheon of terrible films, becoming just another one to avoid like your life depended on it.

The most horrifying depiction of inhuman behavior since That's My Boy. Or maybe Jack & Jill. Or maybe Blue Velvet.

Sandler's films have always been stupid, but the early stuff is pretty harmless; here the jokes almost always come at the expense of someone else, the kind of needless bullying one expects of a YouTube comment section.

The single consistent throughline Grown Ups 2 seems to have, in fact, is its bigotry.

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

The leads dampen the delivery with a noticeable lack of energy. It's telling when the most charismatic comedic performance comes from Taylor Lautner...

In the first five minutes, a deer walks into the star's bedroom and urinates on his face. It's all downhill from there.

Largely free of Sandler's usual schmaltz and lame romance, it's pure plotless, grotesque high jinks, bizarre and inept in a way that's fascinating without ever being all that funny.

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.

The fact that some moments are genuinely laugh-out-loud funny almost makes the whole endeavor sadder.

The film, at its core, is about being bullied & standing up to bullies and claiming one's community. Some nice sentiments, but so much of it is lost amidst the rampant, third-grade level stabs at humor.(Full Content Review for Parents also available)

Another lowbrow make-work project for Sandler's jock cronies, SNL has-been hangers-on and Dan Patrick.

[A] witless, clueless and utterly pointless sequel to a comedy that pulled in boatloads of cash, but was beloved by absolutely no one.

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.
