MMGN: Grown Ups had potential, but doesn’t come close to meeting it. The humour is too low-brow and frankly not funny. Grown Ups is unsure if it’s trying to appeal to fans of the actors when they were younger or their kids. In the end it’s somewhere in the middle and doesn’t really directly appeal to anyone. The running jokes are beaten to death, the plot’s rubbish and drags on way past its welcome. Besides a few laughs, Grown Ups fails to live up to its expectations.
