Grown Ups

The death of their childhood basketball coach leads to a reunion for old friends (Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock, etc.), who gather at the site of a championship celebration from years ago. Picking up right where they left off, with their wives and children present, the buddies discover why age does not necessarily equal maturity.

My Review: The film was hilarious. It was great to see Adam Sandler, one of my favorite actors making pure comedy. After watching the "Funny People" mess, I was looking for something worth while. There isn't a single piece of Happy Madison film that I did not enjoy watching, aside from "Funny People", of course. "Grown Ups" included many long time friends of Sandler's and the chemistry between the guys was magical. It made for a comedy that in my eyes will never get old. The jokes were fresh, the on-screen chemistry of all of the actors was authentic and there were some major surprises that had me rolling. They couldn't have more diverse people in the film that knew how to have fun. Adam Sandler has done it again! 3 out of 4 stars.
