Grown Ups

The new Adam Sandler comedy about five friends – Sandler, Chris Rock, Rob Schnieder, Kevin James and David Spade – who meet up later in life to honour the passing of their childhood basketball coach. With their wives – Salma Hayek, Maria Bello, Maya Rudolph – and kids in tow, they spend a holiday weekend together, celebrating the glory of their championship years and tapping into their youth.

Co-written by Sandler and directed by his go-to-man, Dennis Dugan (Happy Gilmore, Big Daddy, I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry).

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. The only reason I gave it one star was because i can't give it -1 stars! Give me my money back! The plot was rubbish and the acting second rate. Very sad to see such a...
