Because 1 huge load of shit was not enough:
The all-star comedy cast from Grown Ups returns (with some exciting new additions) for more summertime laughs. Lenny (Adam Sandler) has relocated his family back to the small town where he and his friends grew up. This time around, the grown ups are the ones learning lessons from their kids on a day notoriously full of surprises: the last day of school.

Grown Ups 2... the answers to questions no one asked.

Usually Hollywood makes a shameless cash grab sequel. Now they're making sequels of shameless cash grab movies.

Looking at the cast list is more puke inducing.

It has Colin in it, I'll probably see it. It also stars Sandler's entire family, which is weird.

Who wants to take bets that the budget for this film comes out to $100 million?

What a repugnant cash grab by a hook nosed schnook!

Hudson who do you blame?
So this essentially funded a vacation for Sandler's family?

Chris Rock has the integrity of a 19th Century Congolese slave capturer.

HA! A deer pees in his face!

The way that Spade is wearing that hat on his wig makes me so mad.

I need to know why anyone would want to see this movie in the theaters on purpose.

I actually didn't see this trailer here first... I saw it last night, with a bunch of people in a movie theater waiting to see This is the End. Two things:

-People in the theater were genuinely laughing at the clips. I mean, guffaws. It was disheartening.

-When your movie trailer devotes more than 10-15 seconds rehashing the first movie, you know the second movie will be pure dogshit.

They did the car wash scene with Warrant's Cherry Pie. If that doesn't say 5 Star Classic, what does?

That whole trailer is coasting on the feel-good vibe associated with The Doobie Brothers, J. Geils, Poison and Warrant. It's like the equivalent of a sitcom laugh track. It even has TWO of the "Stop the music because here comes the funny!" scenes.

YouTube clips of sitcoms stripped of their laugh tracks are wretched. I'd love to see how this same trailer plays in theaters without the music.

Adam Sandler - Adam Sandler Attacked By Cheetah In South Africa
10 July 2013
Adam Sandler had a close encounter with a cheetah during a recent trip to South Africa when the wild animal turned on the actor and attacked him during a feeding session.
The Grown Ups star was in town filming new movie Blended with Drew Barrymore when he took a day off to enjoy a private safari, where he was allowed to get up close and personal with the native wildlife.
Under the supervision of an animal specialist, Sandler was invited to help feed a cheetah, but things quickly went awry when the feline became aggressive and jumped on the actor's back.
Sharing a clip of the experience with viewers during an appearance on U.S. programme Late Night With David Letterman on Tuesday (09Jul13), he explained, "They were very nice people at this place (the wildlife park), they let me in with a cheetah... and said I could feed the cheetah water with my hands. So I did it and something went a little bit wrong."
The owner ran in to pry the cat off the 46 year old, who remained remarkably calm throughout the ordeal, and he said, "What happened was they said you're not supposed to bend down low by the water and that's why he got mad... I played it off real good... (but) I was very nervous... I swear to God when he jumped on me all I was gonna do was let him eat me, there was not one part of me that was gonna fight back. I was like, 'Alright, this is how I'm dying.'"

The reviews are rolling in...

Variety:
Among the slackest, laziest, least movie-like movies released by a major studio in the last decade, "Grown Ups 2" is perhaps the closest Hollywood has yet come to making "Ow! My Balls!" seem like a plausible future project.
Hollywood Reporter:
Throughout, gags are cartoonishly broad and afforded so little time for setup and delivery we seem to be watching less a story than a catalog of tossed-out material.

And others:

Almost aggressively more of the same. If you hated the last one, you'll be in misery all over again. If you took to the predecessor, you'll find this one a fitting continuation.
Yes, it's time for another visit to the Adam Sandler Death-of-Cinema Fun Factory, the big-screen version of a terrible sitcom where laugh tracks are replaced by the co-stars chuckling at their own awful material.
A phoned-in ode to lazy comedy and staggering stupidity.
The most horrifying depiction of inhuman behavior since That's My Boy. Or maybe Jack & Jill. Or maybe Blue Velvet.
Another lowbrow make-work project for Sandler's jock cronies, SNL has-been hangers-on and Dan Patrick.

David Spade came in today to talk about the business and some things. .
ONA brought up Sharknado and Atlantic Rim as well.

And the rubes in the audience last night were like "That was hilarious!" "Funniest movie ever!" "Usually comedies don't sequel very well, but this was great."

Ugh.
