Sometimes there are those movies were the trailer looks like it might be a dud but you figure it can’t be bad because it’s got a great cast behind it. This is kind of how I felt about Grown Ups. The trailer looked like your run of the mill family comedy movie, not much interest there, but it’s got a great cast line up so I figured at the very least there had to be a couple good laughs in it. That cast includes Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, David Spade, Rob Schneider and Salma Hayek. There was also surprise appearances by Steve Buscemi, Colin Quinn and Tim Meadows. Not to mention this was written by Adam Sandler and Fred Wolf (a man who had a hand in such greats as Black Sheep, Dirty Work, Joe Dirt and Strange Wilderness. So I felt pretty confident that I’d at least be amused here. Luckily this movie does more than amuse, it’s pretty damn funny. Despite it’s look as a lame family friendly comedy it had me laughing pretty good more than a few times. And for those of you that are hoping for that family friendly bullshit don’t worry there this is one of those cases where a movie gets some big laughs in a totally G rated enviroment. If you’re thinking about checking this out but aren’t sure, I say go for it, I’m glad I did.
