Grown Ups (film review)

Film: Grown Ups
Year: 2010
Genre: Comedy
Director: Dennis Dugan
Starring: Adam Sandler, Salma Hayek, Kevin James
About: After their high school basketball coach passes away, five good friends and former teammates reunite for a Fourth of July holiday weekend

My Review:
Wanting some comedy to watch and something I hadn't seen in ages I saw that Grown Ups was on Netflix and couldn't resist giving it a watch.

The film is about a group of friends who are reunited because of the death of their old basketball coach so decide to hire the cabin next to the river so that they could have a weekend together to catch up and the children could get to know each other. As this happens they realise that the children don't know what to do without technology and start to try and bring them back to being children while bringing out the children in themselves as well. However, when an apposing team who they beat as children wants a rematch some thirty years later will they play the game?

I found this film a really good watch and it did make me laugh, which was my intention when walking into this movie. I feel it also has a family for everyone wither it is the single man who is by himself, the big Hollywood family who although slightly grounded seems to be really snobby, a hippy family who is really into nature and a couple of others. I thought this film was good for a quick laugh and something which is really easy to watch and follow the story line of.

I would recommend this movie to those who would like a relaxing comedy film to watch and can have a laugh without having to really think into anything.

My Rating: 4/5

Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z8lDreq9le4 My Review: Wanting to watch a rom-com and having this on my Watch List on Netflix I couldn't resist but give this film a chance and see what I thought. Having liked Emma Roberts in everything I had seen her in previously as well I was excited to see if this was another film of hers in which I would enjoy. This film surprised me however I ended up enjoying this more than I expected. I liked that this film had a Romeo and Juliet vibe with the families not liking each other however the children both being in love with each other and feeling that their families were the reason in which they couldn't be together. I also thought it was clever having the gr

Adoring the first film and having watched it a few days prior I was excited to see what happens in the second movie and if it would live up to first movie. I love that  Ralph Breaks The Internet continues on from the first movie really well and tells us that it has been six years that the main characters have been friends for and how Vanellope is starting to get bored of her game and wants more excitement in her life. By also showing how Wi-fi became a part of the a
