Adam Sandler has a tendency to create a cheesy comedy every now and again in order to have a paid vacation with his pals. Grown-Ups’ is exactly the type of comedy you’re looking for. The story revolves around five long-time friends who get together for a 4th of July weekend three decades later after learning of the death of their mentor.
One would expect ‘Grown Ups’ to be a comedy goldmine with the likes of Kevin James, Chris Rock, David Spade, Rob Schneider, and Nick Swardson in the cast. Critics and the general public were split by the film’s true content. Its predictability, immaturity, and lack of self-awareness were among the film’s many flaws. On Rotten Tomatoes, it gets a dismal 10% rating. Despite this, it was a huge commercial hit. ‘Grown Ups,’ which cost $80 million to make, ended up collecting $271.4 million worldwide, making it Sandler’s most successful picture to date.
Three years later, in 2013, the actors were all back together for a sequel set three years after the original’s events had concluded. A 7 percent Rotten Tomatoes approval rating was given to this picture by critics, who called it sluggish, dull, and downright awful. Though it cost just $80 million, ‘Grown Ups 2’ was a huge financial success at the box office, earning $247 million worldwide. Almost seven years later, we’re wondering if the series will evolve into a trilogy. It’s possible there’s more to come. Everything we know is here.
Grown Ups 3 Plotline
When it comes to “Grown-Ups,” there has been debate and conjecture, but nothing has been verified. As a result, there is no way of knowing how the picture would turn out if it were ever made. However, given how the other two portions function, we can be sure that our original group of five buddies will reunite.
In order to be closer to Eric, Kurt, Marcus, and Rob, Sandler’s Lenny returns to Connecticut with his family in the sequel. However, as things take an unexpected turn, the five must conquer new hurdles. In addition, Roxanne becomes pregnant in the movie. Eventually, Lenny comes to his senses and apologizes to her, which leads to the two of them reconciling at the film’s conclusion. It’s safe to presume that the story will continue in a third installment. Alternatively, it might center on Roxanne’s pregnancy, as it did previously.
Interestingly, Tom Scharpling shared a funny spec script for ‘Grown Ups 3’ on Twitter last month. In his leisure time, he penned the 52-page script as a joke and, of course, as a way to commemorate the series. It begins with Lenny, Eric, Kurt, and Marcus attending Rob’s funeral, only to reveal that the scenario is actually being filmed for ‘Grown Ups 3’.
Grown Ups 3 Cast
Chris Rock portrays Kurt, David Spade portrays Marcus, and Rob Schneider portrays Rob in the comedy ‘Grown Ups,’ which also includes Adam Sandler as Lenny. Salma Hayek, Maria Bello, Maya Rudolph, and Joyce Van Patten round out the cast as Roxanne, Sally, Deanne, and Gloria, respectively. In addition to these, Jake Goldberg, Cameron Boyce, and a host of others appear. Nick Swardson, who portrays Rob’s younger brother, Nick, took Schneider’s position in the sequel.
If ‘Grown Ups’ ever has the third outing, the performers will need to return in their previous roles. Salma Hayek and Maria Bello have both said in the past that they’ve discussed producing a third ‘Grown Ups’ film, but it’s not yet official. It’s another matter entirely whether or not one will ever materialize.
Grown Ups 3 Release Date
Uncut Gems’ critically lauded performance by Adam Sandler has rekindled his popularity. Sandler joked on ‘The Howard Stern Show’ that if he doesn’t earn an Oscar nomination, he’ll produce a horrible movie:
“If I don’t get it, I’m going to f***ing come back and do one again that is so bad on purpose just to make you all pay. That’s how I get them.”
Despite the fact that this may have been mentioned in jest, there remains some optimism for ‘Grown Ups 3’ as little else has been revealed about the picture. Scharpling’s superb spec script, of course, is an exception to this. What a dream it would be if the script was made into a movie. However, at this point, it seems a little far-fetched. It’s hard to tell, isn’t it? ‘Grown Ups 3’ is unlikely to arrive until at least 2024, if at all.
