    Re: Grown Ups

    Couldn't agree more. The "comedy" is just brutal. Its like slapstick humor between old friends the whole time. My eyes started to bleed during it. I rant all the time about how much this movie SUCKS.

    I don't know what you guys are talking about...I loved it. I also thought it got better as it went on.

    I enjoyed it, granted I was drunk. I wouldn't call it a good movie necessarily, but just something fun to watch with other people.

    It's a funny movie. Get a lighter sense of humor. It's cheap but funny.

    Re: Grown Ups

    It's the classic Adam Sandler movie where you're gonna either like it or hate it.
    Personally I liked it, but I tend to like all his movies even though they aren't great. (And honestly, I think I prefer Kevin James' and Chris Rock's characters)

    Adam Sandler should be put out of his and our misery.

    He is terrible.

    Re: Grown Ups

    I love most Adam Sandler movies, but this one just flat out sucked. It had no plot, it was basically them just hanging out around a lake telling bad jokes. There was no controversy either. The only good part was the hot daughter.

    Not all of his movies are great, but Billy Madison, and Happy Gilmore are classics.

    Re: Grown Ups

    His movies are slip, sliding away. I place it back to when he started having kids. His movies just have gotten more and more corny. Chuck and Larry, Grown-Ups were both pretty bad, and I almost walked out of Just Go With It. I didn't really mind Funny People, even though that still wasn't that good. The last movie of his that I liked was the Longest Yard...

    Re: Grown Ups

    Comedies are tough to watch as you get older. In almost every one, you can see the same jokes being set up and then knocked down. Usually, you've seen twenty variations on a joke.

    When a good, unique comedy comes along, it's pure gold.

    Few funny scenes...but definitely a bad movie.
