Boys will be boys. Some longer than others.
Grown Ups is a 2010 American comedy film starring Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock, David Spade and Rob Schneider. Rock, Schneider, Spade and Sandler (as well as co-star Tim Meadows) all joined the cast of Saturday Night Live in the 1990-91 season; other actors Colin Quinn, Maya Rudolph, and Norm MacDonald have also been SNL cast members. Sandler and Fred Wolf wrote the script and Dennis Dugan directed. The film was produced by Sandler's production company Happy Madison and was distributed by Columbia Pictures.

Thirty years after graduating from high school, five former basketball teammates Lenny Feder (Sandler), Eric Lamonsoff (James), Kurt McKenzie (Rock), Marcus Higgins (Spade) and Rob Hilliard (Schneider) gather at the lake house where they celebrated their biggest victory to mourn the passing of their late coach. Over the course of the Fourth of July weekend, the five friends realize that just because they've all grown up and started families doesn't mean that they've lost that old spark. Adulthood is what you make of it, and no one at the lake house is eager to be the grown-up of the gang.

A sequel was released in July 2013, where only Sandler, James, Rock and Spade returned (Schneider was unable to reprise his role due to scheduling conflicts and his wife was pregnant during production). The sequel got extremely negative reviews and was a box office bomb.

Not to be confused with Jaleel White's short-lived UPN show.
