Disappointed

All in all the story reveals a sweet lesson at the end. Time with family and friends without phones & gaming devices can be a great experience and more fun than you can imagine. However,, the sexual content was way too much. These actors are awesome comedians and would've been even funnier without it. I watched this with my grandkids ages 11 and 14. A lot of times they would cringe at parts that were truly unnecessary. We all decided it wasn't that great of a movie and were disappointed in knowing that it could've been.

Very Good Movie

Very disappointing to see so many parents acting as if the title of the movie wasn't "Grown Ups". I even saw a parent mentioning how there was bad parenting. Yes, genius. That's the point of the movie. It is a hilarious movie that I watched when I was younger, and the more adult innuendos obviously went right over my head. Overall, it's about bonding as a crazy family and group of friends despite recurrent failures, but with slightly inappropriate gag humor.
