“Grown Ups” is a 2010 comedy film directed by Dennis Dugan. The film stars several popular actors like Adam Sandler, Chris Rock and Kevin James, who all have grown their careers through comedic films and television. The movie follows five childhood friends who reunite after 30 years to attend the funeral of their basketball coach and spend the weekend together with their families.
The film uses a lot of physical comedy, slapstick humor, and crude jokes to elicit laughter from the audience. It also plays on the idea of grown adults acting like children, with the main characters engaging in immature antics and pranks. Many of these events take the characters back to their childhoods and help them rediscover old bonds. This tactic within the film gives the audience a good laugh, while also helping them grasp human nature and how it works.
While some audiences find the film entertaining and funny, others criticize it for its reliance on lowbrow humor and lack of depth in its characters and plot. I believe the film was a comedic success as it gained a lot of revenue and paved the way for the second film “Grown Ups 2”.
Overall, whether or not someone finds “Grown Ups” to be a funny comedy will depend on their personal taste in humor.
