Grown Ups: aptly titled :)

the Plot:
In 1978, five childhood friends won their junior high basketball championship. During the celebration at a rented lake house, their coach "Buzzer" (Blake Clark) encourages them to live their lives in a similar way to how they played the game.

Thirty years later, the five friends, who had remained close companions up until their graduation, have since separated.

Lenny "Hollywood" Feder (Adam Sandler) is a high-powered Hollywood talent agent who is married to Roxanne Chase (Salma Hayek), a fashion designer, and has three children. His two sons, Greg and Keithie (Jake Goldberg and Cameron Boyce) have become very spoiled, much to his annoyance. His daughter, Becky (Alexys Nycole Sanchez) on the other hand is a sweet angel.

Eric Lamonsoff (Kevin James) claims he is now a co-owner of a lawn furniture company, is married to Sally (Maria Bello) and has two children, Donna (Ada-Nicole Sanger) and Bean (Frank and Morgan Gingerich).

Kurt McKenzie (Chris Rock) is a stay-at-home father who is married to Deanne (Maya Rudolph), the primary breadwinner of the family and has two kids. Deanne is pregnant with another child and her mother (Ebony Jo-Ann) also lives with the family.

Rob Hilliard (Rob Schneider) has been divorced three times and has three daughters Jasmine, Amber, and Bridget (Madison Riley, Jamie Chung, and Ashley Loren) from those marriages. His wife, Gloria (Joyce Van Patten), is 30 years older than him.

Marcus Higgins (David Spade) is a lazy womanizer/bum and unmarried.

All five of them regularly harass each other in comedic fashion throughout the film: Lenny for being rich, Eric for being overweight, Kurt for being skinny and not being more useful, Rob for his way of saying "Hey!" and for having a much older wife, and Marcus for being a slacker.

During a 4th of July weekend, they reconvened to the lake house and spent some times reconnecting along with their families and meeting some old adversaries.
