Have you seen Grown Ups 2? What did you think? Would you like to see a Grown Ups 3 shot in Marblehead in three years?
The Adam Sandler movie, filmed in Marblehead and Swampscott last summer, made money, lots of it — $42.5 million — in its opening weekend, July 12-14.
It also took it on the chin from critics who reeled off a spate of stinging reviews.
Still, a large percentage of those who went to see Sandler, Kevin James, Salma Hayek, Chris Rock, David Spade and the rest of the star-filled cast liked wht they saw.
By some estimates 90 percent of them gave the movie a thumbs up, according to the Indianapolis Star.
Which brings us back to you. Did you like it? Did you see much of Marblehead in it? Maybe you saw yourself in it, as an extra.

Grown Ups 2 what just okay. Not as good as the first. There was no real plot to the second one. Just a compilation of somewhat funny clips. We really just went to see it to see Marblehead and some friends who played extras.

A walk down memory lane. Great memories, even of my frat brothers at WPI, the J. Geils Band. It's helping with my recovery, and soon I'll be able to walk Mohawk to get to the 'old homestead'.

it was terrible sandler should take a break for a while hes ruining his appeal with junk like this if it didnt get filmed here nobody would care ... 3rd one would be worse ....

Enjoyed by the kids in the audience...my husband walked out part way through. I could hardly stay all the way through the silliness...I just wanted to see the Marblehead scenes. I would not go to see Grownups 3.

Not the worst movie I've ever seen, but by far not the best. There really was no plot, as another comment stated. I didn't love the first one, but it was better than the second. Maybe a third would be OK if they moved to revolving the story around the children? I wouldn't love the disruption of a third film being shot in town, but if the cast and crew want to come spend another summer here, supporting the local economy, what's there to complain about?

BRING IT ON... I get the feeling there are some that would not be in favor. Next time maybe they could have a debate before discarding any of the sets that are donated.

I thought it was ok but it needed more plot, but i did find it funny. There was too many characters and to much going on, yet there was no actual plot, I think there should be a third movie because if Adam Sandler saw the faults they could be improved on and the series could end with a good film.

1st im sick of hearing everyone say this movie has no plot cause thats not true the plot is lennys everyday life since he moved home 2nd even if this movie didint have a plot why id that bad every movie has a lesson or a surprise ending or someone saves the day and the one time we get a movie were its just life funny life thats so terrible. I dont get that but I do think this film has a plot also its one of the funniest films I ever seen and I saw step brothers and campaign and ted and all 3 hangovers and ther hilarious yet grown ups 2 was funny without language or dirty parts (not that I mind those things) and so its like family funny a for it to be family funny and be like in my top 5 of funniest movies thats pretty good now I loved grown ups 1 and I loved part 2 way better so yes they should make a part 3 and judging on there box office performance they will and also sandler has never had a film loved by critics

I think you can all expect to have the boys return for GU 3 since 2 is a huge box office success grossing over 200 MM so far YTD.

i think it was great they need to make another one to please the fans

For those who didn't like either Grown Ups or Grown Ups 2 it is safe to say they didn't understand the whole "Grown Ups" thing. The coach that took them to his only championship told them to live there lives like they played that game. They are in fact Grown Ups now just like the title of the 2 movies. Need I explain more?

I love grown ups and grown ups 2 I couldn't stop laughing it was so funny I would love to see a grown ups 3 that would be awesome I hope they make a grown ups 3 with all the same cast members

Stina- I would bet the farm that there will in fact be a GU 3. Check out these box office numbers: As of 10/17 the movie has grossed $ 241 million. The cost to make it was $ 80 million of which Mr. Sandler was paid $ 20 million. The $ 241 million is before DVD's and downloads on iTunes, etc.(which I downloaded last night for $ 14.99) which was released this past Tuesday. This movie was a monster hit, FINANCIALLY.... Not too shabby for another Adam Sandler 1 star production that was rated a 7 % from rotten tomatoes. The original was a 10 %

I absolutely loved this movie! Adam Sandler is by far the best actor. The whole cast works well together and I laughed the entire time! It's better than the hangover, step brothers etc. They could make a TV series out of it and I would watch every episode faithfully like I do with sons of anarchy. Bring on grown ups 3!
Maddie Isabel Stringer November 12, 2013 at 02:35 AM
is there gonna be a grown ups 3 please make one i love it
FAKE NAME # 347 November 13, 2013 at 06:38 AM
The money sander made on this will help his re coup his loss on the other horrible movie that's my boy .....

I love the movie. I hope they make a part 3!

Fake Name #347, That's My Boy was hilarious and did well at the box office and DVD sales.

Was recently told by a local kid that Sandler announced a GU3 at the Kids' Choice Awards. I wonder if they'll film it here?
