Grown Ups.

I am really. REALLY. glad I didn’t buy these tickets myself. I mean I’ve seen bad movies before, but I am physically shaken by this one. I just thought it would be a standard, run-of-the-mill bad film. I figured it couldn’t be worse than Couple’s Retreat. However, my expectations were crushed in a way I never thought possible. So many face palm moments. I went with my friends so I could be social, and if they EVER accuse me of not caring for them in any way, I will laugh in their face. I mean for the love of God do we really need another Adam Sandler bro-fest movie that essentially pays him to just hang out with his friends?

However, the popcorn was unusually good.

um…that is all.

    Yep, it was one of the laziest movies I’ve ever seen (and I see them for a living). I also thought Couples Retreat stunk, but at least there was a story to follow.

    And yet, it has made $77 million. A lot of people will watch these guys in anything. On the Grown Ups segment of The Film Fix, my co-host did the editing and ended it with Salma Hayek’s character nailing her own son in the crotch with a rock. Sums it up: if that type of comedy is worth $10 to you, go for it.

    Thanks for commenting on the blog. All best!

      yep, I walked out at the part where “Paul Blart” was walking around with a chicken bucket on his head, I guess that was supposed to elicit a hearty chuckle from the audience. It was kind of insulting, really. But I guess that’s what I get for expecting any more from the movie. My sentiments exactly! I actually thought going into the movie that it couldn’t possibly be worse than Couple’s Retreat. Boy…was I ever wrong! Anyway, regards! Perhaps I will read a post of yours soon about a movie that was actually worthwhile.
