A nine percent on Rotten Tomatoes? What nine percent on Rotten Tomatoes? Despite not getting much love from the critics, in 2010, Grown Ups still went on to delight audiences with a group of grown men cracking jokes at funerals, pranking each other while they sleep, and taunting their basketball opponents, ultimately blowing away expectations, nabbing $271.4 million at the worldwide box office and securing itself a sequel.
In Grown Ups 2, the gang is back together again, but this time, the shenanigans go down in their hometown. Lenny (Adam Sandler), Roxanne (Salma Hayek) and the Feder kids relocate to where Lenny grew up, just around the corner from Eric (Kevin James), Marcus (David Spade), Kurt (Chris Rock) and their families. In celebration of the last day of school and the start of summer, Lennys persuaded to throw a party at his house, but before getting to relive their former glory days, the guys must deal with territorial frat boys, a runaway tire, family drama, a moose, and more.
With Grown Ups 2 due for a July 12th theatrical release, most of the gang hit the press circuit in New York City and sat down with ComingSoont.net to discuss making the film. James, Hayek, Spade, and Sandler touched on Spades issue with a certain tire, a go-kart bit that just had to go, the evolution of Sandlers comedic style, and even an inkling of interest to bring back Billy Madison.
