The kids seem like they’re taking a backseat in the story “Grown Ups 2,” but that doesn’t mean that the new Adam Sandler movie is leaving the childish antics behind. A trailer for the upcoming comedy has been released, and it comes replete with penis jokes and a scene of Sandler getting peed on by a deer.
That being said, “Grown Ups 2” might have grown up a bit from its 2010 prequel. This movie follows Sandler’s character Lenny Feder as he moves back to his childhood town with wife Roxanne (Salma Hayek). There he and friends Eric Lamonsoff (Kevin James), Kurt McKenzie (Chris Rock) and Marcus Higgins (David Spade) run into the likes of angry frat boys (played by Taylor Lautner and Milo Ventimiglia) and flamboyant male cheerleaders (led, of course, by Andy Samberg).
Considering “Grown Ups'” $162 million box office intake in the United States, there clearly is still an audience for Sandler’s brand of comedy. Hopefully the fact that there is only one deer-peeing-on-a-face level joke in this trailer is indicative of the fact that Sandler steered away from potty humor here and strived for something a bit funnier. The scenes with Lautner and Samberg were actually pretty funny, and hopefully additional cameos from the Sandler group of friends will make this a movie worth checking out.
“Grown Ups 2” comes out on July 12. What did you think of the trailer?
