"Grown Ups Acting Like Kids"

Plot

Grown ups starts with a basketball game back in 1978 with a bunch of 12 year olds, then goes on to 30 years later where these children are now adults. They are all brought together by their coaches death and all meet at his funeral then stay at a lake house together where they used to party to relive old memories.

Now all grown up they all have their own problems and challenges;
Cast

Lenny Feder - Adam Sandler (Successful Hollywood agent married to a fashion designer)

Eric Lamonsoff - Kevin James (Overweight and out of work)

Marcus Higgins - David Spade (Drinks to much)

Kurt McKenzie - Chris Rock (House-husband)

Rob Hilliard - Rob Schneider (3 Daughters he never sees, he is always so in love)

Summary

When they are at the lake house Lenny realises that his kids are boring and have been taking his wealthy lifestyle for granted so he encourages them to play outdoors like him and his friends used to do when they where younger which sparks them to end up having a rematch basketball game like the one in 1978.

From swinging off branches to playing arrow roulette this grown ups teach their kids how they used to play and have fun even if people ended up getting injured. Everyone starts viewing their lives differently and starts making changes for the better and having more fun outside rather than stuck in playing video games all day.

Overall

Overall I feel that Grown Ups is a must watch film for a comedy fan, this film had me in stitches all throughout and the story line definitely kept me gripped. I also felt that the cast gave it that edge over other films because the cast felt like they had a real deep connection and they are all great funny actors. If you haven't seen this film already I recommend you do so as soon as possible and this film can be picked up on DVD for £5 which is a bargain for such a great film!

Manufacturer's product description

Thirty years after graduating from school, five former basketball teammates gather at the lake house where they celebrated their biggest victory to mourn the passing of their late coach. Over the course of the Fourth of July weekend, the five friends realise that just because they've all grown up and started families doesn't mean that they've lost that old spark. Adulthood is what you make of it, and no one at the lake house is eager to be the grown-up of the gang. Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, Kevin James, David Spade, and Rob Schneider star in a film written by Adam Sandler, Fred Wolf and directed by Dennis Dugan. Maria Bello, Salma Hayek, and Maya Rudolph co-star in this hilarious title GROWN UPS.

Review: the impressive abilities of this ensemble go underused in a clichéd comedy that stalls at nice and stupid on its way to profundity.
