I’m amazed that film studios are willing to give Adam Sandler more money to take vacations with his friends and film it. With poor films like: Jack and Jill, Grown Ups, Grown Ups 2, That’s My Boy, and You Don’t Mess with the Zohan it really is astonishing that people consider Adam Sandler to be talented. But then there are idiots that think Fifty Shades of Gray has good literary qualities to it, so perhaps it isn’t so astonishing? The world is just full of idiots that are willing to give their money to folks such as Adam Sandler and Stephenie Meyer it seems. If nothing else, Adam Sandler is a good businessman who knows how to keep the cash coming in.
I could take the time to describe why Adam Sandler’s “comedy films” are nothing more than juvenile humor that has no real talent. Many others (especially the folks at Red Letter Media) have taken the time to dissect and suffer through numerous Adam Sandler movies so that you don’t have to. Please, stop giving your money to Adam Sandler.
I’ve already posted this video, but here it is again:
While this film is not really new being released back in 2013, Grown Ups 2 is a great film. Adam Sandler, David Spade and Sandler’s other friends just keep the laughs coming. You might be thinking that since the last several Adam Sandler films have been lazy, formulaic, uninspired and appeal to the lowest common denominator, but you’d be wrong about this film my friend! While a few things in it might be corny, it’s just a movie so learn to have some fun. Just pull the stick out of your rear-end and enjoy the film. Mike and Jay over at Red Letter Media have many great things to say about this film. They found so many good and humorous things in this film that their review of Grown Ups 2 lasts a whole two minutes and fifty-three seconds. If the U.S. box office can give Sandler another 133 million, just accept it. Don’t forget to watch the whole Grown Ups 2 review.
While you’re at it, don’t forget to also watch Red Letter Media’s critical acclaim for Star Wars Episodes I, II and III. You’ll be glad that you watched them, I know that I most certainly found much joy in the aforementioned Star Wars reviews. Enjoy!
Bonus Round, here’s the Honest Trailer for Grown Ups.
