Title: Grown Ups 2
Released: Summer 2013
Director: Dennis Dugan
Starring: Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock, David Spade
Despite what many critics and movie goers are saying about Adam Sandler’s latest outing, I found Grown Ups 2 to be a hilarious barrel of laughs and one of the most fun movies i have seen the cinema this year so far.
Yes, it’s silly, and yes, it’s daft, but it’s supposed to be. That is the main point of the movie – it’s FUN. The jokes are stupid and they hit the spot. At one point I found myself bent over being I couldn’t stop laughing.
The characters, whilst a little unrealistic, are lovable and amusing. There are also a few delightful cameos from an array of stars, ranging from some familiar Disney faces to the one and only Stone Cold Steve Austin (which was amusing as hell – watching him cower from Adam Sandler will never not make me laugh).
In the end, if you enjoy stupid, heartwarming comedy, you really should give with movie a go. You don’t go to see comedies for the amazing writing or effects – you go to laugh, and that is exactly what this film delivers. It’s not often that I can’t wait to view a comedy a second time, and I’m already planning my second trip!
