This movie stars Chris Rock, Adam Sandler, Kevin James, and David Spade. This is the sequel of course to Grown Ups, which I thought to be a little silly but at least fresh. This one has the same idiot boys running around. Adam Sandler has got Salma Hayek as his hot wife and his three kids, Chris Rock has convinced his wife that it’s her anniversary when it’s not (are we already laughing?), David Spade finds out he has a kid that looks just like him except he’s a huge thug, and Kevin James (who’s married to the gorgeous Maria Bello) spends more time with his mother Georgia Engall. Are you laughing yet? If you find belching, sneezing, and farting all at the same time hilarious, you may like this movie. The scene that did it for me was a guy fixing the frozen yogurt machine that of course only serves chocolate, and as he has his back turned it drips, making him appear as if he’s pooping. If you find this appealing, you may find Grown Ups 2 hilarious. The general gist is that these guys are over-the-hill and no one finds what they do very funny, so they pepper the movie with very young cast members such as Taylor Laughtner. I don’t know what the point of this movie was, besides maybe that people never grow up. If you are one of those people, you may want to see this movie. If not, you may want to pass. Two Stars.
