Grown Ups Review

While I was looking forward to seeing the latest Happy Madison product, I left somewhat disappointed.  The basis of the movie is:  after their high school basketball coach passes away, 5 friends reunite for the funeral during the 4th of July weekend. 

After the funeral, Lenny (Adam Sandler), Kurt (Chris Rock), Eric (Kevin James), Marcus (David Spade), and Rob (Rob Schneider) spend the weekend at a lake house that they used to hang out at when they were teens basically reliving their glory days. 

The story has been done many times in the past and with the comedians involved in this film, I expected more.  There are funny moments in the film that will have you laughing but its hit or miss.  Two hours are spent with the guys making fun of each other.  Their is a good message in the film where Sandler realizes his kids are to "hollywood" and wants them to do things he did as a kid, like skipping rocks, playing outside.
