And you thought Jack and Jill was bad? Grown Ups 2 set for 2013...

Jan. 13, 2012by: Mike Sampson

Over at the Digital Dorm today, they're debating which is the funniest Adam Sandler movie, BILLY MADISON or HAPPY GILMORE. Sadly for Sandler, that's about where the funny ended. His most recent film, JACK AND JILL, should sweep the Razzies and now he's looking to sequelize his other worst film.

Coming Soon is reporting that Sony Pictures has set a July 12, 2013 release date for GROWN UPS 2, which has original writer Fred Wolf returning to work on the script. Sandler has not yet officially committed to the film (which would be his first ever sequel) but at the moment is "interested" in returning. This would assume he can get the entire gang - Kevin James, Chris Rock, Rob Schneider and David Spade - back together again.

I guess the one positive when it came to Adam Sandler movies was that he wasn't making pointless sequels but we can't even say that anymore. I mean, GROWN UPS 2? Has there been a more transparent attempt at a paid vacation with friends (at least since the original GROWN UPS)?

The good news is that JACK AND JILL kinda bombed at the box-office grossing only $88 million worldwide (GROWN UPS, by comparison, grossed over $270 million worldwide). So I guess that explains why a sequel...

Extra Tidbit: I'll sign off on a GROWN UPS 2 so long as it's a remake of DELIVERANCE.

I liked Grownups! Deal with it!

I actually liked Grown Ups, and I don't care what the writer of this article or anyone else says!! I would welcome a sequel if they all returned.

It's sad about Adam Sandler movies nowadays, his last 3 have all benn horrible (still have not seen Jack & Jill), but Grown Ups was boring & Just Go With It was embarassing to watch. I miss the days of Billy Madison, Happy Gilmore & The Waterboy.

Haters gonna hate

B&M all you want, I have no problem saying that Grown Ups was funny. So was Billy Madison, So was Happy Gilmore and so was the Wedding Singer. Just becaise Adam Sandler focus's on "family funny" with Grown Ups doesn't mean it's any less funny.

I agree wholeheartedly with you! It seems like everyone hates Adam on this page if he's not making movies like Billy Madison all the time, though there was some stuff in Grownups that wasn't family friendly. I enjoyed Grownups and would welcome a sequel if they all returned! I think Reign Over Me was his best film.

I'm sure this will just be the same plot (if it had one, honestly can't remember) as the first film done over again. Thanks a lot people who saw Hangover 2.

All of Adam Sandlers movies are the same.. but they're funny.. To say you love Billy Madison and Happy Gilmore and not Grown Ups or any Sandler film, means that you are retarded.. They're all stupid comedies, but they're funny and have the same humor as those first two.. People on this site are full of shit.. I saw the trailer for Grown Ups and Jack & Jill and they did nothing for me.. But when I actually seen the films with my family, we all cracked up and had a good time and that's what it's

Fun.. Some of you on here have forgotten that.. Take that stick out of your fucking ass because you are not better than anybody else

Dude - you're welcome to your opinion, but when you try to validate that opinion by marginalizing the opinions of everybody who disagrees with you - you're the one who sounds pretentious. So stop being sanctimonious and hypocritical.

I'll happily take the stick out my ass, if you start paying attention to what you're watching, because I've sat through Happy Gilmore happily, and I've sat through Click - and those two movies are definitely not the same. That's like you saying chocolate pudding

That's like you saying chocolate pudding and dog shit taste the same, and we're a bunch of snooty assholes for hating on the deliciousness of dog shit. You want to eat pudding and dog shit in equal measure - be my guest. But don't make us out to be your personal oppressors.

Besides - if you think actors and comedians can't improve or worsen over their career, I'd be happy to make a long list that points to the contrary.

I agree with you somewhat cause I happened to like Grownups, but all Adams films are not the same. Watch Punch Drunk Love or Reign Over Me, and you will see a huge difference. Reign Over Me is not a comedy.

God NO

Easily one of (if not) the worst movies I've ever seen. I forced a chuckle at some Spades lines but even he didn't have anything to work with. I've never seen such lazy movie making and I walked out feeling offended and angry that Sandler is laughing all the way to the bank at how stupid people are. I use to have hopes that he had one more in em but Grown Ups was the turning point to where I had to say "Ya know what? I give up!"

you must have not seen too many bad movies then, cause this was by FAR not the worst I've ever seen. I happened to like this movie.

Didn't care for the original Grown Ups and I don't care for the sequel. But I really want to see Jack and Jill, I'm guessing it will be one of those "so bad its good" movies. Adam Sandler should make that "Merman" movie for real.

Look at the bright side...

There will be a new onslaught of hilarious parody videos of actors being horrified watching the trailers.

Is this really that different from the Ocean 11 sequels? Friends getting paid to hang out. People see these movies cause they like the actors. All the guys in Grown Ups are very funny. Chris Rock alone is still one the funniest comedians of all time. So the potential for a truly hilarious movie is there.

But this film is literally about these friends hanging out. Oceans 11 at least has a story.

Teachable moment

Griping and ranting about shitty movies will not stop them from being made. Better to just ignore them and roll with the punches.

I tend to agree. But unfortunately Sandler is a brand that won't likely die out anytime soon. I usually ignore him, but I'm in the minority. And as movie fans, we can still lament the depressing decline of once-great comedians and their never-good cohorts into multi-million-dollar PsOS.
