If Adam Sandler felt the burning desire to make a sequel to one of his movies, I guess I'm glad it was Grown Ups. (And, by the way, I'm not counting films like Punch-Drunk Love and Funny People, which aren't part of his Happy Madison stable of starring vehicles.) Grown Ups is pretty sophomoric, but it's got a lot more spirit and sweetness than, say, That's My Boy. With that said, though, Grown Ups 2 may be the worst thing he's ever done. I survey the wreckage over at Paste.
(By the way, look at how sad Nick Swardson looks in this photo. Poor guy.)
