Critics Shred Grown Ups, in Theaters June 25

Growns Ups, a comedy featuring a star-studded cast, will open nationwide in theaters June 25, 2010.

Grown Ups is a story about five friends and former teammates reunite years later to honor the passing of their childhood basketball coach. With their wives and kids in tow, they spend the Fourth of July holiday weekend together at the lake house where they celebrated their championship years earlier. Picking up where they left off, they discover why growing older doesn’t mean growing up.

The Grown Ups cast features a slew of A-list comedic actors, including Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock, David Spade and Rob Schneider. The wives are played by Salma Hayak, Maria Bello and Maya Rudolph.

Grown Ups is directed by Dennis Dugan and written by Adam Sandler and Fred Wolf.

Despite the star-studded cast, the critics shredded the movie Grown Ups.

“The actors seem genuinely fond of one another, and the message — don’t pass up life’s simple pleasures — suits its PG-13 rating. And the ’80s soundtrack is spot-on. But it isn’t enough to salvage this film.” – Scott Bowles, USA Today

“The new Adam Sandler comedy has all the charm of a home movie that does not star your own family, which means it’s overly sentimental, filled with you-had-to-be-there moments, bad jokes and even worse camera angles.” – Betsy Sharkey, Los Angeles Times

“It looks like everyone had a good time making Grown Ups. Too bad you can’t say the same thing about watching it.” -Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News

“Come on Sandler, you’ve got all the money in the world. Challenge yourself instead of headlining crap like this.” – Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper

Grown Ups is rated PG-13 for crude material including suggestive references, language and some male rear nudity.
