They’re back – Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock, and David Spade re-team for 'Grown Ups 2'.
Sandler’s most successful comedy in his long career, the 2010 film 'Grown Ups' took the box office by storm as audiences laughed their way to more than $260 million worldwide.
So, after more than ten years of blockbuster comedies, Sandler is doing something he’s never done before: a sequel.
Director Dennis Dugan, who helms his eighth Sandler film with 'Grown Ups 2', says that there are several reasons why the time is right.
“It was just exciting to bring everybody back together,” he says. “All the characters and relationships were so rich and funny, we knew there were lots more stories to be told. It’s like visiting old friends.”
For Chris Rock, re-teaming with his fellow funnymen meant the chance to be an especially funny movie.
“It’s a playful competition,” he says. “I wanted to be funnier than Spade, Spade wants to be funnier than Kevin, and Kevin wants to be funnier than Adam. You just can’t help it, if you’re a comedian. But the positive side is that I think we really do make each other funnier.”
'Grown Ups 2', which also stars Salma Hayek, Maya Rudolph, Maria Bello, Steve Buscemi and Shaquille O'Neal, hits Indian screens on September 13.
