Grown Ups 2

Once again wrangling Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, Kevin James and various other ’90s ‘Saturday Night Live’ alumni, the follow-up to the 2010 comedy combines potty humour with middle-aged malaise. Reuniting Sandler and his high-school buddies, the film’s suburban vignettes find room for every lowbrow gag: chocolate-as-poo jokes, Shaquille O’Neal’s clown faces, digs at transgender bodybuilders and the ‘burp snart’ – a burp-sneeze-fart combo given more screen time than any women. Put it this way: in the first five minutes, a deer walks into the star’s bedroom and urinates on his face. It’s downhill from there.
