New Trailer For Grown Ups 2 Online
Nothing but a good time...

23 May 2013  |  Written by Owen Williams

So in 2010 there was a film called Grown Ups, with Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, Kevin James, David Spade and Rob Schneider. We gave it one star, but it made north of $270m anyway. Why does nobody ever listen? Box office of more than triple your budget - especially when it was quite a high budget, considering - pretty much guarantees you a sequel, and here we have Grown Ups 2. Here's what you bought with all your Grown Ups tickets. Happy now? Happy?

This is the international trailer, not to be confused with the domestic one from a month or so ago. If you care to play spot the difference, please go right ahead. This one makes clear that Grown Ups 2 has replaced the water park with small-town America, but that it's otherwise business as usual (minus Schneider: it seems he couldn't do it).

What that means is there's some gross-out stuff, some goofy stuff, some sentimental stuff, and Poison on the soundtrack. The thrust of the plot sees our old-timers going up against some frat-boys (lead by Taylor Lautner) for alpha-male dominance of the local hangouts. Because it's called Grown Ups, but they're acting like kids: do you see? They also have to operate under the radar of their wives. We'd like to to operate under Salma Hayek's radar too. Does that actually make sense? Meh.

Grown Ups 2, along with the boys, Lautner and Hayek, also stars Maria Bello, Maya Rudolph, Nick Swardson and model Patrick Schwarzenegger (yup, son of Arnold) in his first movie role. Sandler stalwart Dennis Dugan is the director once again, and it's out in the UK on August 9. Remember, if you go and see it, there will be another.
