The all-star comedy cast from Grown Ups returns (with some exciting new additions) for more summertime laughs. Lenny (Adam Sandler) has relocated his family back to the small town where he and his friends grew up. This time around, the grown ups are the ones learning lessons from their kids on a day notoriously full of surprises: the last day of school. (c) Sony

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Sandler's films have always been stupid, but the early stuff is pretty harmless; here the jokes almost always come at the expense of someone else, the kind of needless bullying one expects of a YouTube comment section."
‑ Drew Hunt, Chicago Reader
"This is pap, plain and simple: scattered raunch-lite devoid of emotional resonance."
‑ Andy Webster, New York Times
"[A] slothful, indulgent sequel that sees a once-great screen comedian hit self-inflicted Sandlergeddon."
‑ Simon Crook, Empire Magazine
"[A] witless, clueless and utterly pointless sequel to a comedy that pulled in boatloads of cash, but was beloved by absolutely no one."
‑ Corey Hall, Metro Times (Detroit, MI)
"Transgender jokes, fat jokes (always James, happy to look stupid), homeliness jokes, mama's boy jokes -- the picture was made by people who like to put down people, and it was made for people who like to tease others or watch others be insulted."
‑ Michael Smith, Tulsa World
"These movies are about four friends -- played by comedians -- remembering what it was like to be young. How much better for an audience would it be if they remembered what it was like to make comedy?"
‑ Wesley Morris, Grantland
"It makes the first movie look like The Maltese Falcon."
‑ Bilge Ebiri, New York Magazine/Vulture
"Rob Schneider, the butt of many jokes in the first Grown-Ups, is nowhere to be seen. Salma Hayek, as Lenny's wife, looks understandably tense and irritable throughout."
‑ Jake Wilson, Sydney Morning Herald
"The only good news is that the five friends in the original film have been whittled down to four."
‑ Christopher Tookey, Daily Mail [UK]
‑ David Aldridge, Radio Times
"Grown Ups 2 delivers exactly what it's been advertising in trailers and on talk shows: grubby low-comic escapism."
‑ Michael Sragow, Orange County Register
"A movie of fools, by fools, for fools."
‑ Laremy Legel,
"The single consistent throughline Grown Ups 2 seems to have, in fact, is its bigotry."
‑ Michael Arbeiter,
"Lacking anything remotely resembling a conventional story, this ramshackle contraption is just a loosely connected collection of lame sketches taking place over the course of one very long day."
‑ Sean Burns, Metro News
"Directing once again is schlock auteur Dennis Dugan, and the result is an $80 million YouTube video."
‑ Jim Lane, Sacramento News & Review
