The cast was absolutely great I mean it’s like combining king of queens, happy Gilmore, Joe dirt and Chris rock thrown in there. It was funny and had a story too. A clever funny awesome comedy and one of my favorite scenes was when they played arrow roulette and rob has an arrow in his foot. The cast is terrific, including Kevin James, Adam Sandler, Rob Schneider, David Spade, Mario Bello, Maya Rudolph, Salma Hayek, and Chris Rock. With the exception of Schneider, who's been in some funny stuff but has not been himself funny, we all know these are funny people, and they show it here. The chemistry between all the friends is there. You can really tell that these people are all friends. Sure, they (hilariously) insult each other, and they act like they have something against each other, but you know down deep in the pit of their stomach they really like each other. We get a surprisingly little amount of fat jokes from James, and Sandler doesn't play it one note like he usually does. This is what makes Grown Ups surprisingly funny, the fact that these comedians are allowed to be funny without being their stereotypical characters the film makers could have easily made them. What made this film precious is that telling you that, how life is precious, learn to have fun, live together like it is your last day, and not take life for granted. Like men being boys and never wanting to grow up. In the process, the women and children learn something about themselves along with their spouses and fathers respectably. Grown Ups is definitely worth seeing if you are a fan of Adam Sandler or any of these actors. It is full of fun and laughs. There are times when it feels like director Dennis Dugan is trying to have his actor force lines or force part of the story, but he makes up for it with the laughs that come within other parts of the story.
It was light, funny, and worth every dime. This is a movie that I would consider adding to my collection atleast. All-in-all this movie is a very good and hilarious comedy. Very comical, witty, and well told.
