|Chicago Sunday Times
Roger Ebert Grown Ups is a pleasant, genial, good-hearted, sometimes icky comedy that's like spending a weekend with well-meaning people you don't want to see again any time real soon.
Hilary Caton Sandler, who co-wrote the film, mixes in the right amount of adult humour and childish comedy that, while it could be summed up as a ''boys will be boys'' tale, also shows he’s come a long way since The Water Boy.
C. Fuchs Arguably the laziest and lamest comedy to come down the pike in some time
Tomatometer Grown Ups' cast of comedy vets is amiable, but they're let down by flat direction and the scattershot, lowbrow humor of a stunted script.
