After moving his family back to his hometown to be with his friends and their kids, Lenny finds out that between old bullies, new bullies, schizo bus drivers, drunk cops on skis, and four hundred costumed party crashers sometimes crazy follows you.
Henry Roth is a man afraid of commitment up until he meets the beautiful Lucy. They hit it off and Henry think he's finally found the girl of his dreams, until he discovers she has short-term memory loss and forgets him the next day.
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?Written by
The lake rope swing scene was added at the last second during filming. Adam Sandler told the story of how it happened to him and it was decided to include the scene in the movie. It was then decided it would be funnier if it happened to Eric Lamonsoff (Kevin James). See more »
Rob fixes a vegan breakfast. He won't allow "dead animal flesh" anywhere near the organic food. Later, on McEntire Island, Rob is reaching in the bucket for fried chicken to eat. See more »
You see that? You just aim for a spot and shoot the ball there?
It's true. Your dad has won over 50 games with that shot.
Really? Because that shot doesn't work on the Wii.
Well, you should Wii-turn that Wii and get yourself a Wii-fund. Tim Duncan has had over a hundred game winners with that shot.

Adam Sandler movies have never been smart and witty, so I wasn't expecting much when I went to see Grown Ups. It is better than his recent attempts but still not great but going in with low expectations helped me to quite enjoy the movie.
The movie is about 5 former school basketball players who return to their home town for the funeral of someone close to them. The interaction between these former team mates indicates that although they have achieved in life they still haven't fully grown up.
The comedy is quite lame most of the time but there are a few laughs to be had and the supporting characters are quite good who includes Maria Bello and Selma Hayek. They did seem to be having more fun making the movie that we did watching but I brought my dad along with me and he really enjoyed it. It is definitely not a great movie but for a light laugh after a hard day at work it is quite good.
