Anyone wanna see Grown Ups 2?

Dec. 6, 2011by: Niki Stephens

There's no stopping sequels we didn't ask for. You can just add another one to the pile...unless you do actually want to see a sequel to this.

Adam Sandler's ensemble buddy comedy, GROWN UPS is getting a second installment. What's weird is that this would be the first Sandler movie to get a sequel. What's even weirder is that GROWN UPS is the highest grossing Sandler movie. It made $271 million worldwide.

GROWN UPS scribe and long time SNL pal Fred Wolf is currently in negotiations with Sony Pictures and Happy Madison Productions to write the sequel. Wolf has been around Sandler for awhile and wrote screenplays for BLACK SHEEP and one of my personal favorites, DIRTY WORK. However, GROWN UPS did nothing for me. There were parts here and there that I chuckled at but overall I was just not impressed.

As of now, there is no confirmation from Happy Madison or Sandler.

What would happen in a sequel for GROWN UPS? Do they re-reunite or something? Are they the only survivors in a zombie apocalypse? Not sure. Hey Adam Sandler, I adore you and know that you have tons of fun with your friends on set, but please go back to doing flicks that don't suck so much ass. Thank you.

Aaaand here come the sequels.
His movies have been terrible (mostly) and those have at least been original films. I can't even imagine how bad Grown Ups 2, You Don't Mess with the Zohan 2, and Mr. Deeds 2 will be.

Thumb me down all you want. I know you will, but I liked Grown Ups. It certainly wasn't his best film, but I enjoyed it still. I thought the chemistry between all of them was pretty good, and made for an enjoyable film. I would welcome a sequel. I still think his best film in the the last few years was Reign Over Me, and it wasn't even a comedy!

Fuck yes

J/k. Hell naw. GROWN UPS didn't even get a laugh from me. It was just Sandler fucking around with his buddies. I'm sure he had a blast making the movie, but I had no enjoyment watching it.

Someone mentioned it vaguely below but..

doesn't anyone else notice that it seems like Sandler does films to go on vacation to beautiful areas?

Unless they go for an R-rated comedy, and replace all those kids in the movie with Norm McDonald, I'm not interested. (Note: I never saw grown-ups, I just know from the previews that it looked like a family comedy loaded with kids)

I've given up on Adam sandler. His last good movie was Click, but even then, it wasn't hilarious but had an interesting concept. I don't really care for this movie or any other movie Happy Madison produces.

I don't know how I feel about this. On the one hand, grown ups is my least favorite Sandler movie, and yes, I include Little Nicky in that assessment!

I am an unapologetic Sandler fan, I even found Jack & Jill to be somewhat comical at times, but Grown Ups was really just bad, it lacked anything really funny, which is all I ask.

But in that, perhaps a sequel can work where the first one failed. When I first heard of the movie, I was pumped for it, the end product was crap, so perhaps with

When I first heard of the movie, I was pumped for it, the end product was crap, so perhaps with a fresh writer (who also wrote and directed the under appreciated Strange Wilderness) the concept that the original had, will finally be executed right. (Let the thumbs down response begin!)

I'd rather see Mall Cop 2. That's how much I hate Grown Ups. It's just another excuse for them to get together and have a vacation and film it in the progress

Give me the money for this.

I'll spend it on whores and blow. That way something useful would come out of it.

Sooo let me get this straight...

They won't pony up the money for an Anchorman sequel, which would certainly make its money back and more, but they will for this piece of absolute dogshit? ...Sounds about right.

I'm definitely not defending this movie because Adam Sandler SUCKS at writing, but Anchorman only made $89.3 million worldwide compared to Grown Ups $271 million worldwide. So it is understandable that studios would rather have a sequel to this one. I'm just saying.

What do I care? Never seen the first, don't need to see this, but plenty of people seemed to enjoy it, so good for them.

"but please go back to doing flicks that don't suck so much ass. Thank you."

That statement speak for every Sandler movie to come out in the last 5 to 7 years (possibly more).

I hated Grown Ups and thought it was shit. Do not want a sequel (no need for it) and hope everyone involved goes away. Especially Kevin James.
