Last night I was invited to an advanced screening of Grown Ups starring Adam Sandler and Chris Rock. My immediate response after seeing it, and by that I mean what I tweeted was, If the people who made Meatballs made The Big Chill it would be Grown Ups. You can take this anyway you like. My husband thinks Meatballs is a great movie, so he takes it as a rave review. I think Meatballs is a pretty silly movie not to mention chauvanistic, so it's not so much a rave for me.
I will say Grown Ups had me laughing out loud several times, even if it was against my better judgement. It's definitely geared to the 40ish male audience, so I suppose I'm not it's demographic anyway.
For those of you who have no idea what Meatballs is:
Hmm...after watching the trailer for Meatballs it maybe more cerebral than Grown Ups. Oh well, you get the general idea.
Grown Ups opens June 25.
