Grown Ups



Thirty years after winning a championship game, a former high school basketball team get together to commemorate their coach.

To say this is unsophisticated humour is an understatement, a more accurate title for the movie might have been "Kids Stuff". There's a childish quality to the stream of jokes about breastfeeding and farts, dare yourself to watch without cringing. The comedy cast deliver plenty of memorable moments, and you'll find yourself struggling to forget what you've just watched. "Grown Ups" is testament to how getting older does not necessarily lift you above immaturity, misogyny, or meanness. Groan ups.
