Adam Sandler and his ‘Happy Madison’ production company have been on a steady roll since the mid 1990s and their string of films starring Sandler himself. As of late, the company has been known for smaller, yet equally humorous, films such as Grandma’s Boy and the Deuce Bigelow franchise.
Now, the team is reuniting with Sandler’s cast of regulars and newest on-screen partner Kevin James for a brand new comedy called Grown Ups. The film is about a group of five boys who grow apart over the years and finally come together to reconnect and find their childhood once again. I like to call this one something like The Sand Lot: 30 Years Later.
Sandler takes the lead in this one, in his first comedy role since this year’s Funny People, with a familiar cast of characters joining him. David Spade, Rob Schneider, Chris Rock, and Kevin James are all in the cast as the group of boyhood friends. It almost seems like James is filling the role of the late Chris Farley here, as he’s the only one of the group who did not work on Saturday Night Live in the 90s.
The rest of the cast is filled out by Salma Hayek, Maria Bello, Steve Buscemi, Maya Rudolph, and Gary Busey. Check out the first full trailer after the jump. Catch Grown Ups in theaters on June 25th, 2010.
