The last day of school brings surprises and unexpected learning experiences to a group of parents.
" It's hard to imagine another comedy coming along this year that is this abrasive and free of laughs. It's like everyone involved intentionally tried to create a horrible movie. "
" [The] lazy, scattershot and anything-but-mature sequel to the leaden Grown-Ups. "
" Nobody escapes untainted by the foul stench of Grown Ups 2. "
" This is pap, plain and simple: scattered raunch-lite devoid of emotional resonance. "
" None of the stars are trying very hard, and so the most memorable presences are the cameos: If nothing else, Grown Ups 2 will go down as the only film in history to find room for Steve Buscemi alongside "Stone Cold" Steve Austin. "
" Like most Adam Sandler movies, it's exactly like most Adam Sandler movies. "
" Grown Ups Minus 2 would be more apt. "
" The movie lurches from one gross-out scene to another, flipping the bird at continuity and logic. It honestly seems as if Sandler and his team descended on a random suburb, halfheartedly improvising and moving on when they got bored. "
" The fact that some moments are genuinely laugh-out-loud funny almost makes the whole endeavor sadder. "
" Apparently the world demanded another family-friendly version of "The Hangover," one that combined scatological comedy with smarmy sentimentality. "
" The temptation arises to say something nice about "Grown Ups 2" just because it doesn't cause injury. But no, it's a bad movie, just old-school bad, the kind that's merely lousy and not an occasion for migraines or night sweats. "
" In the first five minutes, a deer walks into the star's bedroom and urinates on his face. It's all downhill from there. "
" A few decent one-liners notwithstanding, the movie comes off as willfully uninspired ... "
" In certain ways, Grown Ups 2 marks a return to classically Sandlerian infantile anarchy. "
" For all its warm and fuzzy notions of family and community, Grown Ups 2, directed by longtime Sandler cohort Dennis Dugan, has a desperate reliance on nasty jokes about pee, poo and -- with surprising frequency -- gay panic. "
" Adam Sandler scrapes the bottom of the barrel -- and then he pukes into it -- with Grown Ups 2... "
" Grown Ups 2 looks like it was a lot of fun to make. And the last laugh is on us. "
" When Taylor Lautner is the funniest thing in a movie starring Adam Sandler and Chris Rock, we're in trouble. "
" Friendship, family and breasts: Sometimes that's all you need. "
" A movie of fools, by fools, for fools. "
