Grow Up

With a cast full of some of the best comedians of out time, Grown ups attempts to put Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock, David spade, and Rob Schneider on the same screen for what I expected to be one of the funniest movies ever. Unfortunately it did not reach my expectations. The movie takes us on vacation with these five funny guys, their wives and kids, who were childhood friends, to their childhood vacation spot. It seemed like more of a reality show than a movie, like hey just sent all these people on vacation with a cameraman and tried to see what they could make out of it. The movie seemed unscripted and at times extremely boring. There was barely any plot besides the basketball game challenge that was extended towards them by their childhood rivals. Though at times there were some funny jokes, it seemed like they just threw one liners out to make fun of each other. This got really old after about 10 minutes of the movie. What especially bothered me was the consistent bashing about Kevin James being fat. There had to be ten jokes made on this topic, and though one or two would have been funny it got very old after a while. the bottom line is that after making this film these guys need to grow up.
