Opera House Cinema Series to screen ‘Grown Ups 2’

“Grown Ups 2,” starring Adam Sandler, Kevin James, David Spade and Chris Rock, is the next featured film in the Fredonia Opera House Cinema Series. It will be screened on Saturday and Tuesday at 7:30 p.m.

In “Grown Ups 2,” the all-star comedy cast from “Grown Ups” returns (with some exciting new additions) for more summertime laughs. After having the greatest time of his life three summers ago, Lenny (Sandler), decides he wants to move his family back to his hometown so his kids can grow up with his gang of childhood friends and their kids. But between old bullies, new bullies, schizophrenic bus drivers, drunk cops on skis, psycho grade school girlfriends and 400 costumed party crashers, he finds out that sometimes crazy follows you!

Adam Graham, in the Detroit News, says the film “preaches core values such as the importance of family and standing up for oneself. It’s all about Sandler and his posse, but there’s something about the warm, convivial on-set vibe that translates on screen. And for what it is, gosh darn it, it works.”

Elizabeth Weitzman, in the New York Daily News says “you know what you’re going to get, and that is, indeed, what Sandler delivers. It’s juvenile, it’s obvious and it’s crass. But with Sandler at the helm, it’s easy to like.”

Rated PG-13 for crude and suggestive content, language and some male rear nudity, “Grown Ups 2” runs 101 minutes.
