Grown Ups

Boys will be boys... some longer than others.


Grown Ups
A crowd-pleasing comedy which generally failed to impress the critics. The cast is packed with big comedy names, and the setup has five buddies who won a tournament back in high school, reuniting at the scene of their victory. As luck would have it, the team they beat all those years ago is also there. The guys are now mature, in assorted relationships, and spend the time talking about the past and dealing with their partners and kids. No, not much of a story, but lots of low-brow humour.

Chicago Sunday Times
Roger Ebert quote iconGrown 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.

eye Weekly
Hilary Caton quote iconSandler, 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.

Rottentomatoes tomatometer
Tomatometer quote icon 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.
