How could Adam Sandler stoop so low as a comedian, actor, writer, producer, and human being to put forth this movie? The original Grown Ups was a beautiful success: witty, heart-warming, and original. But this over-produced, over-rated, semi-pornographic sequel was horrific. However, if you enjoy fart jokes and nonsensical and unrealistic "comedy" of this upcoming generation, then grab you popcorn, take a seat, and get ready, because you're in for a treat. From the cheap laundry toss in the beginning, to the unnecessary Kmart journey, to the final battle with frat-boys, this movie reeked of mediocrity. I'm surprised that my ticket didn't come with a Honey BooBoo-like scratch and sniff card or 3-D glasses. Grown Ups 2 had a high bar set because of the original's creativity, likability, and humor; this sequel had no option but to fail.
