Pros:Some funny moments
Cons:Large cast underutilized, many jokes fall flat, no real plot
The Bottom Line: Definitely skip Grown Ups at the theaters. If you absolutely have to see it, rent it.

In Adam Sandler's latest production from his Happy Madison company, he brings a bunch of his friends and former co-stars back for the ensemble comedy Grown Ups. Starring Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock, David Spade, Rob Schneider, and Salma Hayek, this film follows the story of 5 friends who grew up together and won a basketball championship reuniting to pay their respects to their former coach who has recently passed away.
Unfortunately, that is about as much plot as there is in Grown Ups. Once they've reunited, the friends spend the weekend at a lake house together where they meander through various subplots, some of which never really get resolved, and some that come out of nowhere.
A lack of plot can be forgiven if the movie is funny enough, but Grown Ups falls a bit flat here as well. Some of the best moments are shown in the preview, of course, but the rest of the movie retreads the same material too many times.
All in all, Grown Ups had potential, especially given the cast, but it fails to deliver on even the most basic expectations. The audience that I saw this film with barely laughed, and when they did it seemed more uncomfortable than anything. There was actually one couple that walked out part-way through.
