The rest of GROWN UPS is a series of “funny” scenes with no connective tissue, mostly Sandler, Spade, Rock, James and Schneider literally sitting around ad libbing, goofing off and making fun of each other under the guise of a good-natured family comedy. There’s fat jokes, sex jokes, old people jokes, fart jokes, poop jokes, urine jokes and David Spades naked ass. There’s also touching moments of serious drama, like when Sandler’s daughter discovers that there’s no tooth fairy.
In short, if you’re a fan of Adam Sandler’s recent output of family-friendly shtick, you’ll probably enjoy GROWN UPS. If a group of pretty much every SNL alum from the 90s, including Maya Rudolph, Colin Quinn, and Tim Meadows, is your dream movie cast, this is the movie for you. For everyone else that expects more than average, it’s fairly worthless. Except for all the parts that involve Rob Schneider getting made fun of—those were acceptable.
Gag Reel (3:50): Lots of cursing and some David Spade ballsack (censored, thank God).
Cast of GROWN UPS (7:09): Look at that, all the stars are friends and they had a great time filming this! Each person gets some face time through interviews, even Norma MacDonald who’s in the movie for all of 5 seconds. Like the film, it’s lighthearted and shallow, thought there is a Paul Blart joke thrown in.
Extra Tidbit: Norm MacDonald makes a blink and you’ll miss it cameo in this. Going along with the theme of the film, he show’s his ass.
