REVIEW: GROWN-UPS

PUBLISHED: 16:00 25 August 2010 | UPDATED: 11:09 14 October 2010

ADAM Sandler ropes in a bunch of his comedian buddies into rediscovering their youth in GROWN-UPS (12A). You get the impression Sandler, David Spade, Rob Schneider, Kevin James, Chris Rock and the rest had a great time off camera.

ADAM Sandler ropes in a bunch of his comedian buddies into rediscovering their youth in GROWN-UPS (12A). You get the impression Sandler, David Spade, Rob Schneider, Kevin James, Chris Rock and the rest had a great time off camera - but not a drop of that fun comes across on screen.

Reunited at the funeral of their old basketball coach, the gang decide to take their families to a lakeside cabin to remember the past and (naturally) tackle a few current relationship issues.

Cue all the usual stereotypes, slapstick and trite moralising as everyone learns a valuable lesson about life - and not even the combined comedy skills of the fairly decent cast can save the film from fluffy blandness.
