A new UK trailer has been released for the Dennis Dugan directed comedy Grown Ups. It features a who’s who of former SNL stars including Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, David Spade, Rob Schneider, Maya Rudolph, and that one guy they just can’t shake, Kevin James. This trailer reveals slightly different footage from what we saw in the domestic version but manages to keep the same tone. Take a look…
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. The film also stars Salma Hayek and Maria Bello as two of the long suffering wives who are married into this group of man-children.
The screenplay for Grown Ups was written by Sandler and Fred Wolf, which explains why we had such a hard time laughing at the jokes in the trailer. It’s been a while since Sandler has put out a good comedy; it seems like all of his decent material got used up during the mid and late-nineties with Happy Gilmore, Billy Madison,The Waterboy and Big Daddy. What the hell happened?
What do you think of the international trailer for Grown Ups? Does it bring the funny?
