Thirty years after graduating from high school, five former basketball teammates gather at the lake house where they celebrated their biggest victory to mourn the passing of their late coach. Over the course of the Fourth of July weekend, the five friends realize that just because they've all grown up and started families doesn't mean that they've lost that old spark. Adulthood is what you make of it, and no one at the lake house is eager to be the grown-up of the gang.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Grown Ups is the perfect poster child for this maddening summer of movie mediocrity."
‑ Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald
"Lazy is the word."
‑ A.O. Scott, At the Movies
"Grown Ups is cliched, predictable and full of immature and juvenile humor. The film recycles far too many jokes and it gets old real fast."
‑ Matt Joseph, We Got This Covered
"Doesn't so much play like a film than random home movies of Sandler and his usual screen cronies on vacation."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"Grown Ups heralds a sad day for comedy nostalgists of a certain age. Call it the day the amusement died."
‑ Mike Scott, Times-Picayune
"The male fantasy of cheerleader spouse, well-adjusted kids and expanding waistline."
‑ Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out
"It's not so hilarious that you need to rush to see it but not so bad that you will suffer unduly if you take a chance on its more-or-less family friendly charms."
‑ Connie Ogle, Miami Herald
"Don't take it too seriously and you'll have a good time."
‑ Jeffrey Lyles, Lyles' Movie Files
"Five forgettable characters reunite for a (lame) joke-filled weekend."
‑ Sarah Sluis, Film Journal International
"Surprisingly, amazingly, bafflingly uncomedic and unhilarious."
‑ Matt Neal, The Standard
"A benignly crude slice of family hysteria."
‑ Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York
"Grown Ups delivers precious few laughs for the sheer volume of comedy talent on offer."
‑ Peter Debruge, Variety
"The title mainly leaves one wondering when Sandler will chose to finally grow up and stop starring in this ongoing series of terrible comedies."
‑ Jeff Beck,
"The second half of Grown Ups isn't good enough to dig its way out of the tremendous hole it's created for itself but it's far from the worse thing Sandler has ever made. Maybe in another 20 years he'll make something funny."
‑ Joshua Starnes,
"There's almost no plot, and loads of schmaltz, but the hidden metaphors and cast chemistry makes this a worthwhile effort."
‑ R. L. Shaffer, IGN DVD
