Grown Ups 2 is an incredibly hilarious film. It is not the most humorous out of all the comedic films I’ve ever watched—certainly doesn’t level with Vacation—but I still guarantee you’ll squeeze a good laugh out of it. As soon as I saw Adam Sandler’s face plastered on the poster, I was immediately drawn. Added with the fact that the movie falls into the genre of Romantic Comedy, I intuitively don’t want to miss out. Rom-Coms are by far the genre that I fancy most, and thus taking that into account, it doesn’t take much for the any movie under that category to please me.
And surely, I was fulfilled. I’d break out laughs occasionally and my whole family delighted in the film as well. It’s no wonder Adam Sandler is deemed the king of comedies; all humor films starring him that I’ve watched so far have never failed to provoke laughter out my stomach. Although there are some things I don’t fancy as much within the film. I think what the film is trying to convey is that growing old isn’t always a bad thing, but the note is projected as a silly chaotic mess in the movie. The characters seem so immature that it gets agitating sometimes, whereas the main character is portrayed a knucklehead and unfaithful for the most part. As a trigger warning, I also ought to caution you regarding the violence, profanity and sexual nature this movie runs by.
This is the type of movie you’d want to see following an awful day. But if you’re seeking something with an essence of life values or pungent moral messages that educates but is simultaneously entertaining—I’d refer you to something else; try ‘The Pursuit Of Happiness’ instead, starring Will Smith. But if your case is that of mine—bored rigid or oppressed—then this, or Vacation, is the perfect film for you! Go watch!
Lenny Feder (Adam Sandler) moves his family back to his hometown to be with his friends, but he finds — what with old bullies, new bullies, party crashers and more — that he hasn’t left the crazy life behind in Los Angeles. Lenny’s friends must also cope with their own challenges: Eric (Kevin James) must face his ultimate fear; Kurt (Chris Rock) has gone back to work as a cable repairman; and Marcus (David Spade) learns that he has an 18-year-old son.
