Grown Ups

It is supposed to be a funny movie and it tries very hard at achieving that end. It should have been called Half-Baked, not Grown Ups. Wait, there is already a movie called Half-Baked and it is more grown up that Grown Ups.

I cannot believe this movie has been in the oven for this long(James Farly was slated for the role played by Kevin James before his untimely death and production of this film was shelved indefinitely), it had the potential to be a good comedy movie considering the main cast - Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, Kevin James, Rob Schneider and David Spade are all actors known for their comic talents. Over and above that Adam Sandler is one of the writers, but the script is hodge podge, there are one liners at awkward places, with no cohesion between the script and story, nothing much for actors to do. It looks as if the actors came for a day job, mouthed their lines in between the breaks from their real life and left in the evening.
