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
