Say what you will about Adam Sandler – but I love his movies. For the most part, they’re about friendship, family and taking care of one another. The only one I ever saw that I didn’t like was Zohan – and while I was mildly shocked by some of the content and language, even worse was that I lent it to my friend, Long, before I had watched it and he promptly went back and put it on the DVD player in his salon for the old ladies to watch while they were having their nails done. When he told me about how risque it was, I was mortified and I am sure that my embarrassment influenced my opinion of the movie after I watched the thing. But I am happy to report that Grown-Ups is a much better, family-friendly movie and I really liked it. Sure, it had lots of bodily function / guy humor, and yes, that obnoxious idiot David Spade is in it, but all in all, it’s a very funny film. How can you go wrong with Adam Sandler and Kevin James in the same movie? Most of the usual suspects made an appearance as well. If you haven't seen it, and you need a good wholesome laugh, you can find it streaming on NetFlix. Aggie & I give it three and a half bags of popcorn. No hankies required.
