Review & Comments
Leave your thoughts about Grown Ups 2.
The Film Stage - 9/10 by John FinkIt's not terribly deep and insightful, as moments in The Way, Way Back are, but Grown Ups 2 is comfortable and, at times, genuinely hilarious.
The Tyee (British Columbia) - 9/10 by Dorothy WoodendThe first film was a bloated sack of puerile sexist jokes, and moronic Adam Sandler bits. . .But the first iteration of Grown Ups made money (a lot of it) so now there is another one.
Film School Rejects - 8/10 by Christopher CampbellAll I can say is I didn't DISlike it. It astounded me too much with its nonsense, and it's not nearly as offensive as I'd anticipated. So I have no real issue with it.
Entertainment Weekly - 8/10 by Owen GleibermanFor Sandler, it's not just when he grew up. It's the garden of idiotic innocence, something that, in Grown Ups 2, he is helping to keep alive.
Detroit News - 8/10 by Adam GrahamFriendship, family and breasts: Sometimes that's all you need.
One Guy's Opinion - 8/10 by Frank SwietekA second helping of infantile lowjinks...a lazy, plotless excuse for a comedy.
MediaMikes - 7/10 by Michael A. SmithSome of the gags are childish but really, isn't that why you go to a movie like this in the first place? I know that's why I do.
Blu-ray.com - 7/10 by Brian OrndorfThis is how the audience is repaid, offered bathroom humor bookends as reward. It might be hard to believe, but the sequel actually gets worse as it drags its corpse-like sense of humor around for what feels like an eternity.
Screen It! - 6/10 by Teddy DurginThe film, at its core, is about being bullied & standing up to bullies and claiming one's community. Some nice sentiments, but so much of it is lost amidst the rampant, third-grade level stabs at humor.(Full Content Review for Parents also available)
Fresno Bee - 6/10 by Rick BentleyComedy works best when there's a constant stream of good material that has some degree of consistency. This movie starts at a juvenile level and regresses from there.
AV Club - 6/10 by Ignatiy VishnevetskyLargely free of Sandler's usual schmaltz and lame romance, it's pure plotless, grotesque high jinks, bizarre and inept in a way that's fascinating without ever being all that funny.
Metro Times (Detroit, MI) - 6/10 by Corey Hall[A] witless, clueless and utterly pointless sequel to a comedy that pulled in boatloads of cash, but was beloved by absolutely no one.
