No one in their right mind goes to an Adam Sandler movie for any reason other than to laugh, and Grown Ups delivers.
67
For a while, the movie looks like "Couples Retreat" or a Tyler Perry house party, only instead of cookie-cutter conflicts, everyone just grows happier and more relaxed.
50
The film drifts along on a stream of humiliation jokes - physical, emotional, sexual, hairpiece-ial.
50
Despite the lazily self-satisfied results, his (Sandler) aging fan base likely will come along for the lackadaisical ride.
50
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.
50
The only people humiliated, really, are older people and heavy people and nerds and vegans and black people and mothers who breast-feed their 4-year-olds. Everybody else gets a pass.
45
Isn't just unfunny; it's so dull.
40
The new Adam Sandler comedy has all the charm of a home movie that does not star your own family, which means it's overly sentimental, filled with you-had-to-be-there moments, bad jokes and even worse camera angles.
40
The movie devolves into a series of clichéd bits, none of which are that funny.
38
If Sandler hopes to win over new fans, he may want to cork the scatological humor and let it age a bit.
35
Indeed, despite occasional attempts at plot and character, this is basically a roast with scenery.
25
The film has some chuckles, if no belly laughs; it has some warmth, if no great heat.
