Plot:

An outlaw who was raised by Native Americans discovers that he has five half-brothers; together the men go on a mission to find their wayward, deadbeat dad.

Review:

This movie had it’s funny moments, at least I think it did. It’s been a week since I watched it (life, man) and I honestly can’t remember any of them.

The movie was your typical Adam Sandler movie, meaning more of what he’s been releasing these last few years. What I remember most from it was that I liked Sandler’s character the least. He was channeling Batman with his voice and it just came off weird.

Supporting cast was fine, like the whole western thing, but would rather watch Blazing Saddles.

3/5

Wendi McLendon-Covey

Plot:

After a bad blind date, a man and woman find themselves stuck together at a resort for families, where their attraction grows as their respective kids benefit from the burgeoning relationship.

Review:

I laughed, I cried, it moved me.

I’m not a big Adam Sandler fan, but I like his romantic movies. This movie, in my opinion, is right up there with 50 First Dates. Yes it was a bit heavy handed in places, but I don’t care.

There was nothing truly original here and there was an over abundance of clichés, but sometimes that’s what you need. It’s nice to watch a movie that you can rely on to deliver certain tropes and not try and reinvent the wheel.

Salma Hayek

Plot:

After moving his family back to his hometown to be with his friends and their kids, Lenny finds out that between old bullies, new bullies, schizo bus drivers, drunk cops on skis, and 400 costumed party crashers sometimes crazy follows you.

Review:

Cute movie. Nice sequel. Lots of boobs and ass.

Do I need to say more?

I guess so.

ummm…

The Grown Ups series is more than likely never going to be someone’s favorite movies but it does its job and is entertaining. It provides a nice little escape into an almost idyllic world.

3/5
