Mel Gibson

Danny Glover

Jet Li

Joe Pesci

Chris Rock

Plot:

With personal crises and age weighing in on them, LAPD officers Riggs and Murtaugh must contend with a deadly Chinese crimelord trying to get his brother out of prison.

Review:

Jet Li with a rat tail is not something anyone needed to see. It is nice to see Mel Gibson with his hair cut though.

Order wise I think I’d rank this one 3rd in order of what I like. It goes 1st, 3rd, 4th, 2nd for me. It would have been nice to have a fifth movie because the decline in quality was a lot less than other franchises.

Excellent car chase.

I liked the fact that Jet Li only lost because of bad luck, he was kicking ass and would have won if the movie hadn’t been about the other guys.

I loved the fact that all the side characters were played by the same actors throughout the series, that was awesome and never done.

Overall, it’s an excellent franchise. I don’t know if the TV show quiet lives up to it, but it’s one of the better adaptions out there.

3.5/5

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
