Netflix Challenge Day 11 - Grown Ups

 photo GrownUps_zps3073dc31.jpg

Five childhood pals reunite after 30 years at a lake house to mourn the loss of their old basketball coach, and act quite juvenile for their age.

A group of 5 childhood friends are the only team to ever win under coach Buzzer. Jump 30 years and they are all grown up with families of their own. Lenny Feder is now a talent agent and married to a Roxanne Chase who is a fashion designer, they have 3 kids. Eric Lamons off is married to Sally and seems to think he is the manager of the store he works in they have 2 kids (Sally still breasts feeds the youngest). Kurt McKenzie is married to Deanne (Kurt is a house husband and Deanne is the worker). Rob Hilliard is married to a woman 30 years older then him (she is his 4th wife) and last but not least is Marcus Higgins who is a lazy jobless womaniser.

They all find out that the coach has passed away and attend the funeral where they all meet up for the first time in years and that is where the shenanigans start with the name calling to start with but when they get to the lake house a whole host of pranks and tricks kick off. Arrow roulette anyone?

I only really wanted to watch this as I saw the trailer for Grown Ups 2 and couldn't stop laughing while watching it. Grown Up really is a feel good movie for all ages even if it does have some moments the younger ones will question.

If you want a film where you don't have to think much and want a laugh every 10 mins then get this on.
