"Grownups"

I usually get pretty pumped about ensemble comedies, but I have to say this movie looks pretty terrible. Anyone optimistic about it?

Ha Ha!! I haven't seen any ads for it except for the billboards on the highways. I love the cast, so I really want it to be good!

I too really want it to be good, but I'm afraid it won't be. Sometimes even bad Adam Sandler movies can be pretty good though.

Just found this:

Critical Reception

The film has received mostly negative reviews. Review aggregate Rotten
Tomatoes
reports that 10% of critics have given the film a positive
review based on 103 reviews, with an average score of 3.2/10.[6]
Another review aggregate Metacritic
awarded the film an average score of 30 out of 100 based on 30 reviews,
indicating "generally unfavorable reviews".[7]
Some of this film was filmed in Gloucester, Massachusetts.

...ouch

The critics have panned many movies that have gone on to be box office successes. I prefer to watch and make my own mind up.

10% on RT is pretty bad though.

I agree..it's one of those movies that has so much potential..but I know is probably going to be horrible. (Says the girl with Hot Tub Time Machine on her Netflix queue).

Hot Tub Time Machine was decent...not great, but it had funny parts that were not shown in the trailers!

I don't tend to go by any one critic, but when the rating on rottentomatoes is high or low, that's usually a pretty good indication...
