Grown Ups 2 is the laziest, most insulting excuse for a comedy in recent memory. This movie is literally a giant middle finger to anyone who hands his or her cash over in exchange for a ticket. If you somehow manage to stumble into a screening of this senseless sequel I highly suggest you sit on your hands so you don't accidentally eat your own hands in an attempt to punish SOMETHING for this horrendous piece of trash making it to the big screen.

Just when you think Adam Sandler can't sink any lower – like we all did with Grown Ups – he and his production company Happy Madison make an even less funny and less plot driven joke of a movie that only out does the original in amount of times I felt second-hand embarrassment for the people on screen, not for the characters but for the actors.

The gang is back (minus the oh so lovable Rob Schneider) and we follow them over the course of a single day as they blow off work, their wives and their kids and treat us to 101 minutes of sexism, homophobia and product placement. If you ever wanted to see a CGI deer urinate on Adam Sandler's face than this is the movie for you. I give them some credit; the deer, being the opening scene of movie, does a great job setting the tone of the movie and its nonsensical and seemingly bottomless fascination with toilet humour.

The low-brow humour isn't the REAL problem here though. If you're familiar with any work from the "Apatow gang" you should be aware that the right amount of toilet humour can actually improve your movie like we saw in this years widely loved R-rated comedy "This Is The End". The real issue with "Grown Ups 2" derives from the films innate ability to not add context to any of the gags. The film is a continuous spewage of s**t covered improv that could have been written by a poorly behaved 12 year old, however it's more likely that the film never really made it to the script process and the cast just sort of made up the plot as they were going along.

I hope the majority of the cameos just happened to stumble on set and weren't specifically given their parts because none of them were in the right place or used to their advantages. It's as if the crew behind "Grown Ups 2" wanted to make the most juvenile and revolting movie possible, and at the same time show us how easy it was to achieve.

The worst part of this abysmal waste of time is that it doesn't just stick with gags. At least then we could compare it movies like "Movie 43" or "Scary Movie 5" in which it might stand a chance, but this is not the case. 15 of the 101 minutes is devoted to the least sincere attempt at family sentiment I've ever seen, and this grave mistake on their part is why I'm forced to compare it to other "dramadies", a genre that until now has been increasing in quality. One step forward in the comedy world and Adam Sandler is there to s**t on your footprint.

With no moral, no character development and no sense of plot Grown Ups 2 would have joined the rest of such movies, since this is clearly not an original type of film. What drags it below the rest is its sexist, homophobic and generally disgusting show of cinema. The only people who could possibly find enjoyment in this film are the trashy characters that star, and judging by how much they laugh at their own jokes, they did.

Our Rating: 0.5/10
