GROWN UPS (2010)
Grown Ups || In 1978, five childhood friends Lenny Feder, Eric Lamonsoff, Kurt McKenzie, Marcus Higgins and Rob Hilliard win their junior-high-school basketball championship. Afterwards they celebrate at a rented lake house. The friends’ coach, Robert Ferdinando, whom they nickname “Buzzer”, encourages them to live their lives in a similar way to how they played the game. 30 years later, Lenny has become an ambitious Hollywood talent agent who lives with his fashion-designer wife Roxanne and their daughter Becky and sons Greg and Keith. Much to his chagrin, his boys act like divas in his mansion.
Eric claims that he’s now co-owner of a furniture company and hates that his wife Sally still breastfeeds their 4-year-old son Bean (their older child is daughter Donna). Kurt is a stay-at-home dad to Andre and Charlotte; his wife Deanne, the family’s primary breadwinner, is pregnant again and her own mother Ronzoni lives with the family. Rob, nicknamed Carrot, has been divorced three times and has custody of daughters Jasmine, Amber, and Bridget; his current wife Gloria is 30 years his senior. Marcus is a slacker and lothario. All five friends regularly harass each other in comedic fashion: Lenny for being wealthy, Eric for being overweight, Kurt for being henpecked, Rob for his continuous use of the joke “Maize!” and for having a much older wife, and Marcus for being sexually juvenile.
When the friends learn that Buzzer has died, they reunite in their hometown with their families, a first in three decades. Intending to pay tribute to Buzzer at a private funeral, Lenny rents the lake house for the Fourth of July weekend for his friends. But Roxanne has planned a fashion show in Milan, forcing Lenny to leave early.
