I went and saw Grown Ups 2 and it was pretty funny, I really enjoy the laughs that it offered. I’ve read the reviews and I’m aware that this movie was totally pan by everyone as one of his lesser movies and even worst then Grown Ups. Let me put my own personal opinion on the movie and I’ll tell you if it’s as bad as everyone is talking.
First off, Grown Ups 2 is sort of bad in that the story really doesn’t have any one direction it’s going. I get the feeling they where going for, they are grown up and have to deal with the fact their kids are growing up now too. Which wasn’t played very well and almost forgettable to be honest.
I’ll come right out and say it, while Grown Ups 2 is a horrible movie, I still enjoy the one hour and 40mins that it ran, almost felt like it was too long to be honest. Adam Sandler came in full go with this pee and shit jokes and to be honest I enjoy his early works from the early days which is part of the problem.
Almost all of Adam Sandler movies are the same generally speaking, he hadn’t changed with the times and while I understand you can’t change your style but it has to grow with the people who enjoy your movies as their taste and likes change as they get older. The fact that the idea of Grown Ups was great, just poorly done on the big screen.
I honest don’t remember much from the movie, it’s just that forgettable and to be honest with all the stars this movie had, it was sad to see that Grown Ups 2 was sadly not as good and nor did I enjoy it as much as Grown Ups. The cast was solid and I know they all had fun making this movie and you know what? To be blunt I had fun watching it, I don’t think I’ll be heading off to see it again and I might watch it again if and when it comes out on Netflix.
Overall the movie was about a 2.5 for me out of 5, nothing more than that. It’s not a horrible movie in terms that it had to be some awesome movie. No it was just a fun movie with some really stupid but funny jokes that you’ll end up forgetting all about once you’re in your car.
