Still shot from the movie: Grown Ups.

Get Our Full Review


Five high school buddies (Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock, Rob Schneider and David Spade) haven't seen each other in thirty years, so the passing of their former basketball coach appears the perfect excuse for a reunion. Although things have changed and they have all grown older, none of them seem to have grown up.

My kids (9 yr. old girl & 7 yr. old boy) were cast as extras while at Water Wizz water park during filming and were excited to see if they made the finished film (couldn’t find them in the crowds).  After reading a few parental type reviews I had serious concerns about the sexuality and crude jokes.  One site recommended the film only for those 13 or over.  Some sites played it way down.  We all went and it couldn’t have been more fun.  The specific scenes described on one website were not nearly as obvious as they described.  Almost all of it was harmless and funny!  There is a scene, however, which discredits the Tooth Fairy.  Be prepared if they believe as I do.  My son laughed hysterically throughout the movie, as did most of us.  I guess my seven year old and I have a lot in common.  The movie demonstrated some value lessons and was a nice, feel-good movie.  Adults were all laughing at the same jokes as the kids and that made it really fun.  If you are on the fence as I was-just go and have fun!  You will be glad you did!

Ok, first off…I did enjoy this movie.  (as an adult)  I cringed when I saw small children in our theater though.  Adam Sandler is a fun guy, but this is along the lines of his other movies like Happy Gilmore and the like.  The language is crude, women are used for sexual jokes, and men act foolishly.  The message was nice and the movie showed families learning together…which was very pleasant. 

On the other hand this is not a movie I would bring my child to see until they were waaaay older!  Like stated above, they do discredit the Tooth Fairy, but that was the least of my concerns.  The sexual undertones in the movie are frequent.  Women’s bodies are showed off like pinup models (tight shots of breasts and backsides abounding), young boys and dad’s oogle at the women as well (and to be fair the mom’s do the same to hot guys at the waterpark), breastfeeding (not in a healthy way) is discussed and sexualized (and as a breastfeeding mom, that annoyed me a great deal), children talkback frequently to adults, and much much more. 

For a fun night out with friends I would be all for this movie, but get a babysitter!!!!
