Review & Comments
Leave your thoughts about Grown Ups 2.
Metro Times (Detroit, MI) - 9/10 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.
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.
The Globe and Mail (Toronto) - 5/10 by Adam NaymanLike its predecessor, Grown Ups 2 is proudly retrograde, both in its relentless deluge of toilet humour and the way it bear-hugs some good old-fashioned conservative values.
Reel Film Reviews - 5/10 by David NusairAs disposable and forgettable as its 2010 predecessor...
3AW - 5/10 by Jim SchembriAdam Sandler's follow-up to one of the most improbable blockbuster comedy hits in film history - Grown Ups took $270m in 2010 - is a similarly plotless, reasonably pleasant, rough-edged comic ramble.
Tulsa World - 5/10 by Michael SmithTransgender jokes, fat jokes (always James, happy to look stupid), homeliness jokes, mama's boy jokes -- the picture was made by people who like to put down people, and it was made for people who like to tease others or watch others be insulted.
Birmingham Mail - 4/10 by Graham YoungIt's easy to be critical of films which have no aim other than to entertain, but if you're half way to Sandler's juvenile, rather sexist mentality you will find more comedy highlights than you'll be expecting.
Boston Globe - 4/10 by Peter KeoughGrown Ups 2 offers a bittersweet paean to childhood and youth and their inevitable loss. Take the case of Adam Sandler. Didn’t he use to be funny?
Film.com - 4/10 by Laremy LegelA movie of fools, by fools, for fools, Grown Ups 2 is easily forgotten, which isn’t as bad a feature as you’d think.
New York Daily News - 4/10 by Elizabeth WeitzmanYou know what you’re going to get, and that is, indeed, what Sandler delivers. It’s juvenile, it’s obvious and it’s crass. But with Sandler at the helm, at least it’s as easy to like as it is to forget.
Chicago Sun-Times - 4/10 by Richard RoeperAn average Adam Sandler comedy, which, sadly, means it’s a below-average comedy — because whatever comedic fire and bursts of genuinely inspired humor Sandler once possessed have long ago burnt out.
McClatchy-Tribune News Service - 4/10 by Roger MooreIt’s another pointless romp through Sandlerland — where the women are buxom, the kids have catch-phrases and the jokes are below average.
