movie summary: After moving his family back to his hometown to be with his friends and their kids, Lenny finds out that between old bullies, new bullies, schizo bus drivers, drunk cops on skis, and 400 costumed party crashers sometimes crazy follows you. (www.imdb.com)
my thoughts: Everyone says the second movie is never as good as the first, and that pretty much sums up Grown Ups 2. Last time we saw the crew of Sandler, James, Rock, and Spade they were looking to move back to their home town, find normal every day jobs, and raise their kids like they were brought up. They are getting old and trying to relive their glory days are getting harder and harder. There are some laugh out loud moments, but not enough to make it a funny movie. The plot is reaching when the local college fraternity, led by Taylor Lautner, turn out to be the newest bullies in town and challenge the old timers to a fight. There is no real point to this movie besides the crew trying to get a few more laughs while taking money from your pockets. If you didn’t like Grown Ups, stay away from this movie. But if their kind of humour makes you laugh, it is worth a watch.
my star rating: 5 out 10
