A new trailer has been released for the upcoming Chris Rock and Adam Sandler comedy Grown Ups and it’s filled with plenty of “Saturday Night Live” alumni including David Spade, Rob Schneider, and Maya Rudolph. It also stars that one guy who wasn’t on the show but always manages to pop up in Sandler’s films named Kevin James. Check out the latest trailer…
The plot of the movie centers around five school friends, Sandler, Rock, Spade, Schneider, and James who reunite after 30 years to celebrate fourth of July weekend together. They try to reconnect with one another while discovering the changes they’ve all made over time. Grown Ups is directed by Dennis Dugan and also stars Salma Hayek and Maria Bello.
When the teaser trailer for this film was released back in November I couldn’t stop wondering what it would have been like if Chris Farley was still around. He would have definitely fit in and taken over the spot that’s awkwardly being occupied by Kevin James in this SNL fest.
Overall, the movie does look semi-hilarious but I’m not sure if that will be enough to warrant my hard earned money. It’s been a long time since any of these guys have put out a decent comedy. Paul Blart: Mall Cop was a fluke that needs scientific research done to explain its success, Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo 1 & 2 were pure slapstick, and are we supposed to be intrigued by Rock’s latest remake Death at a Funeral? Perhaps, Grown Ups will be their redemption project but only time will tell.
What do you think about the latest trailer for Grown Ups? Does it look funny to you? Do you plan on seeing it?
