Review of Grown Ups 2

grown ups 2 starts with a deer urinating in adam sandler's face. and i'm sad to say that it all goes downhill from there. dennis dugan's sequel manages to take the problems of grown ups--which was basically a way for adam sandler and his friends to goof off and make a lot of money for columbia pictures in the process--and amplifies then with a script that is twice as embarrassing. at least the first film managed to avoid being actively cruel in its humor. anyone who laughed at it was laughing with the characters, not at them. with grown ups 2 we are "treated" to the aforementioned bodily humor joke and several others throughout, ethnicity jokes, transgender mocking, misandry and misogyny (a rare mix, to be sure) and many more. but some humor is supposed to not care about sensitivity, so that could all conceivably be at least mitigated if the jokes were funny. they're not at all. sandler, tim herlihy and fred wolf all worked on the script and by all appearances they just watched other films and took notes on what to copy and paste. everything is so lazy and uninspired that even the very slightest of chuckles which come along feel like they should be directed at the original films they ripped off. the cast seems deeply embarrassed to be here, especially salma hayek and maria bello. this is what happens when you make a sequel to a bad movie only because it made a lot of money: you get an even worse movie.
