Grown Ups 2 - Film Review

Home > Everywhere > Cinema | Film Reviews | Movie Reviews
Published September 25th 2013


From Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Salma Hayek, Chris Rock and David Spade, what can I say, apart from there should never have been a sequel.

Seated in the back row of the screening, one man, who happened to sit next to me, laughed a lot, while the rest of the audience were quite quiet and didn't even chuckle.

The comedy was typically American with punch lines added everywhere and a narrative concerning a vulgar loser who meets the 'cool winners' - a very young teenage boy style of film.

Adam Sandler will need to grow up, his boyish charms didn't charm me, his humour was vulgar and the rest of the cast who cannot act (apart from Chris Rock) should find something else to do with their lives.

In saying that, Kevin James, the owner of the BurpSnart, being a burp, sneeze and fart rolled into one was funny the first time, but not after the third, fourth or even fifth time.

Not a movie that I would recommend, unless you're a boy aged from 8 to 14. It definitely required an audience that would appreciate typical American humour such as 'Step Brothers' - actually I'm actually surprised that Will Farrell wasn't type cast in this movie, as this cringe worthy film would be right up his alley.

Sorry folks, just not my thing - but it just might be yours.
