When it comes to mainstream Hollywood comedies, we've all too often found that the quality of a cast is in inverse proportion to the quality of the film (i.e., "He's Just Not That Into You"). That being the case, I had expected "Grown Ups" - which features the likes of Adam Sandler, Salma Hayek, Kevin James, Maria Bello, Chris Rock, Maya Rudolph, David Spade and Steve Buscemi in starring roles - to be a real cinematic turkey. Imagine my shock, then, when the movie turned out to be, for the most part at least (and we'll get to the qualifiers in a moment), a surprisingly genial, laid-back and likable movie that generates a decent number of laughs without breaking too much of a sweat.

That is a particularly noteworthy achievement given that Sandler, not exactly known for either subtlety or restraint, is not only the star of the film but co-author of the screenplay as well (along with Fred Wolf). But somehow Sandler and company (the movie was directed by Dennis Dugan) have avoided the material-given temptation of going overly-broad with the humor, choosing instead to effectively downplay things most of the way.

Sandler plays Lenny Feder, a hotshot Hollywood agent with a fashion designer wife (Hayek) and two children, who spends a weekend in the country with a group of his basketball-playing chums and their families when the boys' beloved coach from thirty years ago passes away. The guys were all part of a championship team in 1978, and they've come together to honor the man who led them through the winning season, as well as to catch up with what each of them has been doing in the interim.

"Grown Ups" is far from a perfect comedy.

I loved this movie. The casting was great. All the characters were lovable and it reminded me of how I grew up as a kid. I thought it was definitely entertaining for people of all ages but especially those of us that grew up in a time where there were no computers, no cell phones, and we had to come up with our own games to entertain us. (without getting killed)It's an enjoyable, entertaining movie with a happy ending and it promotes spending time together as a family and the importance of good friends. What more could you ask for?? I highly recommend this movie. I saw it twice and I can't wait to see it again.

I desperately wanted to enjoy Kevin James in Paul Blart: Mall Cop. I still believe it was only his lack of a strong supporting cast that kept it from being truly funny and was also what made it woefully thin on laughs. This is thankfully not the case with Grown Ups. Here Kevin James is well supported by an excellent comedy team and it works very well. My wife reluctantly went with me to see Grown Ups saying that she didn't like "slapstick comedies". Well, she laughed much more than I have heard laugh her in a very long time and she came away saying that she really enjoyed the film. The film has done very well at the box office despite many negative reviews (as did Paul Blart: Mall Cop) and it does seem to be much more popular with filmgoers than film critics. I personally think it is a much better and much funnier film than Couples Retreat. It is hard to think of Kevin James as any character other than his The King of Queens "Doug Heffernan" and David Spade really just seems to be basically playing a character much like his Rules of Engagement one, Russell in Grown Ups. An added bonus for me in Grown Ups is the presence of the very lovely Maria Bello as the wife of Kevin James. I like the film very much and I had a great time. I will definitely get it on DVD and I hope there will be a lot of bonuses, especially some deleted scenes and maybe even a gag reel.

This movie felt like a Friars' Club dinner with half the one-liners missing the mark. Many of the jokes were forced and apparently not re-shot. Some of the jokes and situations were hilarious, but were then followed immediately by a clunker. It was like going to an expensive restaurant where one course would be outstanding, the next lousy. Overall, a bad experience. Nothing close to "The Hangover" and other movies that find their mark with oddball situations and shock comedy.

The story was good enough, but the writing and the delivery was often lacking.

They went for the gross-out factor in some of the situations (the old, sexually open wife, the breast-feeding mom with her 4-year old - in public), and they just didn't work.

This is one of Sandler's worst movies. Doesn't begin to compare to Big Daddy and some of his other classics. It struggled to include some of the warmth of his other movies, but at times did well in that area.

The way they inserted so many of Sandler's ex-SNL buddies into uninspired roles, it felt like Sandler was just giving his buddies a payday. He's probably the most successful guy in the bunch, and some of them have not had much work lately, except for David Spade and Kevin James, and maybe Chris Rock.

Salma Hayek was hot, as usual, but she apparently does not have comic chops. Better casting was needed.

So much about this movie didn't click. Maybe it was rushed through production. I was expecting an instant classic from this unbelievable ensemble cast, and was left very disappointed.
