Adam is clueless - Grown ups

Grown ups (2010) is about the reunion of former basketball team mates (Chris Rock, Kevin James, David Spade, Rob Schneider) who are now grownups, at the death of their former Coach.
Plot: what plot? I just told ya. It’s about a reunion of 4 former basket ball team mates. that’s it. don’t expect any subplot or surprises. No sire. It’s a long video recording of the families as they holiday together over the fourth of July weekend, catching up and revealing old and new peccadilloes. Towards the end it became a sappy marriage renewal of sorts.
It was like watching a houseful of men and women reading out one liners from a 101 politically incorrect Joke book. With everyone fighting for their turn - ‘Me! me!’. ‘No, my turn’. ‘No, it was your turn last time’. Boob jokes, food jokes, sex jokes, infantile tricks, Arrow roulette (loved that one actually)!
I can imagine a group of guys watching this and relating. The four friends were good together. The wives were a harder mix. But the kids - kids just know how to get things together don’t they?.
The sub-focus on kids of ‘now’ not appreciating the joys of outdoors was appreciated by me. Too much internet and video games…hello? The snootiness of demanding Voss water in a burger joint....hehehe
All in all, I am just so happy I watched this at home sitting on a comfy sofa with a can of coke and chicken kebabs. And how did your day go?
