In 1978, five 12-year-olds win a CYO basketball championship. Thirty years later, they gather with their families for their coach's funeral and a weekend at a house on a lake where they used to party. By now, each is a grownup with problems and challenges: Marcus is alone and drinks too much. Rob, with three daughters he rarely sees, is always deeply in love until he turns on his next ex-wife. Eric is overweight and out of work. Kurt is a househusband, henpecked by wife and mother-in-law. Lenny is a successful Hollywood agent married to a fashion designer; their kids take privilege for granted. Can the outdoors help these grownups rediscover connections or is this chaos in the making?

When old school chums get together to talk about their former junior high coach it's usually before a grand jury.
Fortunately, that's not the case with this comedy. Instead, the ex-teammates have regrouped for their coach's funeral.
To honour his dearly departed trainer, Lenny (Adam Sandler) and his wife (Salma Hayek) open their lake house to his buddies (Kevin James, Rob Schneider, Chris Rock, David Spade) and their families (Maria Bello, Maya Rudolph).
As the friends get down to their old tricks, they discover that they still have a strong connection, which they use to solve each other's personal problems.
While it is aswarm in SNL alumni, Grown Ups is a solemn assembly of family-friendly, non- alcoholic jokes delivered by a collection of castrated comedies.
In fact, this movie is an example of what happens when stand-up comedians don't die of an overdose or commit suicide early on in their career. (Red Light)
