In this article we will discuss about all we know about Grown Ups!
It is a well accepted fact that Adam Sandler will occasionally create a silly comedy in order to have a paid vacation with his pals. ‘Grown Ups‘ is exactly that type of comedy. The plot revolves around five lifelong friends who meet three decades later for a Fourth of July weekend after learning that their mentor had died.
One would expect ‘Grown Ups,’ starring Sandler and other brilliant comedic artists like Kevin James, Chris Rock, David Spade, Rob Schneider, and Nick Swardson, to be plenty of chuckles. However, the film’s plot has split reviewers and the general public. Critics panned the picture for its predictability, immaturity, and lack of self-awareness. It was, nonetheless, a huge commercial success. ‘Grown Ups’ earned $271.4 million against a $80 million budget, making it Sandler’s highest-grossing film to date.
In 2013, a sequel was released, reuniting the cast and taking place three years after the events of the original film. Once again, critics slammed the picture, giving it a 7% rating and labeling it lazy, dull, and even filthy. However, ‘Grown Ups 2‘ was a huge movie office hit, collecting $247 million worldwide against a $80 million budget. It’s been over seven years, and we’re wondering if the series will be expanded into a trilogy. Is there anything else in store for us? Here’s all we know thus far.
What Is the Plot of Grown Ups 3?
While there have been discussions and rumours regarding a third installment of ‘Grown Ups,’ nothing has been confirmed. As a result, there is no way of knowing what route the picture will take if it ever comes to fruition. However, given how the other two sections function, we will almost certainly have five buddies reuniting.
In the sequel, Sandler’s Lenny returns to Connecticut with his family to be closer to Eric, Kurt, Marcus, and Rob. However, as events take an unexpected turn, the five must overcome new hurdles. Roxanne also becomes pregnant in the film. Lenny ultimately comes to his senses near the end of the film, apologizes to her, and the two reunite. It is logical to presume that a third installment would undoubtedly continue the story. It may either focus on Roxanne’s pregnancy or take another time jump, like it did previously.
Interestingly, Tom Scharpling came to Twitter last month to offer a humorous spec script he wrote for ‘Grown Ups 3’. In his leisure time, he wrote the 52-page screenplay for a good chuckle and, of course, to commemorate the series. It begins with Lenny, Eric, Kurt, and Marcus at Rob’s funeral, only to break the fourth wall to show that the scenario is really being filmed for ‘Grown Ups 3‘. The plot finally follows Sandler, Spade, James, and Rock on another vacation, only to discover that there is a serial murderer on the loose. If you’re looking for a good chuckle, check out Scharpling’s spec script here.
Grown Ups 3 Cast: Who Can Be In It?
Sandler plays Lenny, Kevin James plays Eric, Chris Rock plays Kurt, David Spade plays Marcus, and Rob Schneider plays Rob. Salma Hayek plays Roxanne, Maria Bello plays Sally, Maya Rudolph plays Deanne, and Joyce Van Patten plays Gloria. It also stars Jake Goldberg, Cameron Boyce, and a number of other actors. Schneider did not repeat his parts in the sequel and was replaced by Nick Swardson, who portrays Rob’s brother, Nick.
If there be a sequel to ‘Grown Ups,’ the cast must repeat their roles as they have in the previous two films. While ‘Grown Ups 3’ has yet to be announced and may never happen, Salma Hayek and Maria Bello have both acknowledged in the past that there have been discussions about creating one. The question of whether one will ever materialize is something another.

Grown Ups 3 Release Date: When Can It Premiere?
Adam Sandler just earned back his charm with outstanding performance in the critically acclaimed ‘Uncut Gems’. Interestingly, when Sandler appeared on ‘The Howard Stern Show’ he joked that he would make a poor movie if he doesn’t receive an oscar nomination: “If I don’t win it, I’m going to f***ing come back and do one again that is so bad on purpose just to make you all pay. That is how I obtain them.”
While this was most likely said in fun, it does provide some optimism for ‘Grown Ups 3’ given little else has been mentioned about the picture. Except for Scharpling’s amazing spec script, which recently went viral on Twitter.
