Grown-Ups 2 is a horrible idea. It’s a sequel to the 2010 comedy Grown-Ups, and it brings back stars Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Salma Hayek, Chris Rock and David Spade.
Salma Hayek basically the only good thing about this film. Her jugs just keep being awesome. Oh, Paulina Gretzkey is in the film, she’s worth the price of admission if she’s wearing a bikini.
The original film was about four friends who reunited for a summer camping trip. Hijinks ensued and included physical comedy from Kevin James. The movie had the odd cute little moment that anyone in their late 30’s, early 40’s could appreciate, but it lacked any real substance. But that’s the typical Sandler film these days, so I’m done complaining about his films.
In the sequel, the friends come back together, but now they’re all learning lessons from their kids on the last day of school. So… it’ll be funny? NO, probably not. You can be guaranteed there will be a kick to the balls, a fart joke and Sandler getting in a fist-fight.
Grown-Ups 2 comes from the same director of the first film, Dennis Dugan. He also directed such Adam Sandler classics as Just Go with It and I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry, so CLEARLY he has high brow comedic sensibilities.
The writer this time around is Tim Herlihy, who wrote Mr. Deeds. Basically, this is an Adam Sandler production through and through. It must SUCK ASS.

Our Clever Prediction
No doubt Grown-Ups 2 will make some decent money, but I could hardly be called someone who gives a damn. It looks horrible and it ruins the world. Cause that’s what it does.
