Review: ‘Grown Ups 2’ Starring Adam Sandler and Friends is One of 2013’s Worst Movies

Posted: July 12, 2013 at 12:53 pm   /   Film, Local, Movie Reviews, Tom O'Keefe Movie Reviews

The opening joke of Grown Ups 2 (not opening scene mind you but opening joke) features a deer pissing in Adam Sandler‘s face.  I envy that deer. The original Grown Ups reunited Sandler with many of his SNL cohorts including Chris Rock, David Spade, Rob Schneider, Colin Quinn, and Tim Meadows.  Kevin James (though not […]

Movie Review: ‘Grown Ups 2’ Starring Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, David Spade, Kevin James

The first Grown Ups hit theaters some three years ago, and as is the trend is in Hollywood, sequels have become something of an inevitability. Some sequels can stand up on their own merits, while others do absolutely nothing to progress a franchise, but rather bring about negative stigma to it’s name. In the genre of […]

Movie Review: ‘Hotel Transylvania’ Starring Adam Sandler, Andy Samberg, Kevin James

Posted: September 28, 2012 at 7:12 am   /   Featured, Local, Tom O'Keefe Movie Reviews

It’s fitting that a movie featuring classic monsters is assembled from so many parts that you’d half-expect to discover it was directed by Doctor Frankenstein himself. Such is the case with Hotel Transylvania. Let’s count them off, shall we? Adam Sandler voices Count Dracula, an over protective father scared of letting his child face the […]

Roger Qbert Reviews “Grown Ups” Starring Adam Sandler

I’m a comedy snob. You should probably know that. That’s not too say I can’t enjoy a good pratfall or I only laugh if someone makes a reference to Kierkegaard. But give me Saturday Night Live over MADtv any day of the week. And I’ll take Kids in the Hall over both of them. Or […]

Review of “Grown Ups” starring Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, David Spade, Kevin James and Rob Schneider

Like “arrow roulette” that we see in the movie, GROWN UPS is joke roulette; some Jokes hit, some miss. Last week I wrote a review about Toy Story 3 which took me back to my childhood and growing up.  This week I went and saw Grown Ups. I know most of the movie critics will […]

Grown Ups

Posted: June 25, 2010 at 7:17 am   /   Featured, Local, Movie Reviews

Grown Ups tells the story of five friends who were inseparable growing up, but have drifted apart over the years. Unfortunately, it feels more like an SNL cast member reunion show than a solid film, and lacks any serious focus. The film opens with a flashback of a championship grade school basketball game. The team […]

This feels like an early 90s reunion of SNL, with the exception of Kevin James. It is hard to believe that Rock and Sandler once worked together on the popular sketch show, and even harder to believe they were let go. Now, both Rock and Sandler are two of the biggest names in comedy. Spade […]
