It shows each of the five main comedian actors as young kids and these kind of gimmicks always bring a nice charm to productions. Grown Ups is directed by Dennis Dugan who made ‘You Don’t mess with the Zohan’, ‘I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry’, ‘Big Daddy’, ‘Happy Gilmore’ and ‘Problem Child’ so make of that what you will in terms of quality, it’s also written by Sandler so I’m hoping that after Funny People this will be a success even though it has Rob Schneider in it for some kind of shock value.
Synopsis: Grown Ups is a comedy about five friends and former teammates who reunite years later to honor the passing of their childhood basketball coach. With their wives (Salma Hayek, Maria Bello, Maya Rudolph) and kids in tow, they spend the Fourth of July holiday weekend together at the lake house where they celebrated their championship years earlier. Picking up where they left off, they discover why growing older doesn’t mean growing up.
