Following the death of their school basketball coach the team members re-unite for a break in the country, but lots has changed since they were kids. Families in tow the group take on various endeavours and even run into their old rivals.
Adam Sandler heads the cast which is a veritable who’s who of comedy. Kevin James, Chris Rock, Rob Schneider and David Spade are the other team members.
The humour here is all slapstick and there are loads of laugh-out-loud moments, like when the portly Kevin James attempts to climb out a garden swimming pool. Steve Buscemi also pops up and has a show stealing moment when he takes on a tricky stunt.
Cheesy as hell but great fun, Grown Ups combines laughs with a coming of age tale of friendship and the importance of taking time out from a hectic lifestyle.
