The parking lot was full tonight at the mall and there were long lines to see the romantic vampire movie. We, though, went to see "Grown Ups", the new Adam Sandler movie with his usual cast plus many, many more. This movie is different from his other movies in that he said he wanted to make a movie that his kids could watch. It is one of those movies that doesn't have big laughs, but you smile all the way through. It has about three stories going at once. 1. It is about old school buddies who get together at their coach's funeral. 2. It compares kids today with video, texting, etc. to the outside games of the past. 3. It shows couples and families re-connecting from lives that are too busy. The jokes and pranks are in the seams. For those who wonder it is PG. Yes, it does have plenty of junior high Adam Sandler scenes.
A good summer movie that takes place on the 4th of July.
I give it **3/4 for 2010 movie #26
Yes, There are HUGH crowds at the romantic vampire movie!
