Grown Ups Reviews
06.24.10 by REELZ
Adam Sandler comedies. Either you love 'em or you hate 'em. What do critics think so far of Grown Ups?
"Diverting enough to get by..."
— Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"...a pleasant, genial, good-hearted, sometimes icky comedy that's like spending a weekend with well-meaning people you don't want to see again any time real soon."
— Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Though the uncynical goodwill that accompanies Sandler's work makes footing this vacation bill less enraging than the toxic Couples Retreat, it's one of those Sandler movies where the inevitable Steve Buscemi cameo passes for the highlight."
— Nick Pinkerton, Village Voice
"Adam Sandler and a bunch of his old SNL buddies party like it's 1978. Unfortunately they didn't bother to invite the audience."
— Michael Rechtshaffen, Hollywood Reporter
"...perhaps the slackest, shabbiest comedy in the star's [Sandler's] increasingly dreadful oeuvre."
— Nick Schager, Slant Magazine
