I loved the first Grown Ups movie, but this one was just horrible. It lacks a storyline, and is definitely not one to take the kids to. Maybe see it when it goes to the $1 movies or comes out on video. I was so disappointed!

There were funny parts, but a great deal of crude comedy geared to adults. Even with the PG-13 rating it pushed the limit. Nowhere as good as the first.

After all the the thumbs-down reviews, we saw this only because we have had a series of really bad and depressing events lately. We needed a mindless pick-us-up AND WE GOT IT! ! Just go if you need to be silly and light-hearted, even for just an hour or so.

Compared to the first, this movie was poorly made. I was surprised that this movie received a PG-13 rating as it should be PG-16! There were too many sexually based scenes that were embarrassing to watch and if I had brought my daughter with me, I would have covered her eyes or perhaps left the movie. Additionally, there were countless bad attempts at slap-stick jokes like farting and belching that not only were poorly attempted but were just not funny. The movie did not flow well like the first nor did I feel like this was well directed as there were too many awkward situations where funny scenes just stopped like they were waiting for a round of laughter to stop in the audience - of which they were not by the way. I would NOT recommend this to any family to see even as a rental. I think this was poorly made and am surprised that Adam Sandler put his name on this movie compared to the many other movies of his that were much better. Don't go - you will be disappointed.

My husband and I went to see this together. We were expecting something similarly funny like the first Grown Ups. We were wrong, the second one was FUNNIER!!
We laughed and laughed until we cried. The whole theather was side-split on laughs, and we walked out hearing numerous murmurs of compliments regarding the actors and the movie in general. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and would most definitely buy the DVD.
Considering Adam Sandler movies, this one is now in my top 5 favorites. I love his sense of humor, and his use of recurring characters. Was sad not to see Rob Schnieder in this one or that there was no mention of his character. Found out he and his wife were having a baby, so that's definitely an acceptable excuse for missing out on this movie.
