Grown Ups (2010) review

Synopsis: After their high school basketball coach passes away, five good friends and former teammates reunite for a Fourth of July holiday weekend. Read the synopsis. Read it. Read it? That, is all the film is. Nothing more. The concept of the film is quite an interesting one, but was somehow ruined by the overpowering clash of the personalities who starred in the film. There are some good names in this film. You got Adam Sandler, David Spade, Chris Rock, Salma Hayek, Kevin James, Rob Schneider, and Steve Buscemi, to name a few. Herein lies the problem. The comedic value of this film really equals to nothing, and I'll tell you why. The comedic force of each cast member end up cancelling each other out. Sure, they're all funny, but in this flick- not so much. It's not that they weren't funny, it's that they each didn't really get enough screen time, which made the film feel quite empty. Putting this aside and moving onto another negative aspect of this film, the story was essentially non existent. There was no plot, the film consisted of a group of friends taking a short break at a lake house. Despite all the negativity, there were a few funny pieces of dialogue, and the performances were as expected from Sandler and the rest. Disappointing to say the least, not on par with the rest of the Happy Madison productions. 4/10 Kazed
