Big names... rubbish movie.

One of my favourite movies of all time is Happy Gilmore and as a result Adam Sandler one of my favourite actors. My opinion of Sandler has taken a major nose dive after watching this movie.

Grown Ups delivers precious few laughs for the sheer volume of comedy talent on offer.

Inoffensive enough to stop you packing up for home, though that’s part of the problem – Sandler and co have rarely played it safer, or more self-indulgent.

It doesn't get worse than Grown Ups, Adam Sandler's sloppy entry into this year's man-child-comedy sweepstakes. Lazy, mean-spirited, incoherent, infantile and, above all, witless.

Despite the lazily self-satisfied results, his (Sandler) aging fan base likely will come along for the lackadaisical ride.

Smug and lazy comedy that barely raises a chuckle.
