Follow the leap for my review.
Given the cast – a rag-tag bunch of comedians known for their gurning man-child routines – it isn’t surprising that Grown Ups is far from mature. In fact, immaturity abounds as the crew verbally bash one another while Kevin James falls over as many times as possible in under two hours and everyone laughs at how outrageous Rob Schneider’s relationship with a pensioner is.
At this point my reviews usually look at plot mechanics and the subtleties of the film-making process, so this is going to have to be a short section. Grown Ups is brazen, unrefined and silly, with little in the way of nuance,

In the countdown to a national step-off,
"Calvin Marshall" (2010)
Directed by Gary Lundgren
Released by Passion River
Steve Zahn exemplifies the adage those who can't do teach as a college baseball coach who never was quite good enough to make the majors who sees something of himself in an enthusiastic but unskilled player (Alex Frost) that he keeps on the team in writer/director Gary Lundgren's feature debut.
"Chelsea on the Rocks" (2009)
Directed by Abel Ferrara

Directed by Stefano Milla
Released by Triumphant Entertainment
A game of "Claang," a strategy-heavy match of wits, leads to a discussion
The Secret In Their Eyes Winner of last year's Best Foreign Language Film Oscar, The Secret in Their Eyes is this week's best option for purchase and while I think it is a good film, I'm not certain it's a film I'd recommend buying. It felt like more of a masterful episode of "C.S.I." with an impressive production budget than anything else. I never found myself fully immersed in the story as much as I was intrigued on a surface level. I recognize it as a solid piece of filmmaking, and can understand why others really like it, but it just didn't move me in the same way. 30 Rock: Season Four One of several DVDs that arrived just before I set off for Toronto, season four of "30 Rock" is one I intend to watch as soon as time allows.
Stomp The Yard: Homecoming Blu-ray: Exclusive: Whole New Level

But he's too caught up in his own problems to focus.
