    Plot: Another vampire spoof comes to life in "Vampires Suck", from Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer, the guys responsible for other popular spoof flicks such as "Date Movie", "Epic Movie", "Disaster Movie" and "Meet The Spartans". In the movie, teenager Becca (Jenn Proske) finds herself torn between two boys (Matt Lanter & Chris Riggi). As she and her friends wrestle with a number of different dramas, everything comes to a head at their prom.


    THE VERDICT


    There isn't much to talk about this shit. I guess by watching the video below will partially summarize my thoughts. Additionally, I thought the story is pointless and trying so hard to give Twilight some deadly blow but even someone like me who never liked any of the Twilight saga installment felt that all the three Twilight movie (so far) were better than this one. Otherwise, Ms Jenn Proske's attempt to imitate Bella Swan (Kristen Stewart) should be the only credit i give. Otherwise, a total trash. Enough said.

    GROWN UPS (English/PG13)
    Genre: Comedy
    Release Date: 26 August 2010
    Distributor: Sony Pictures
    Running Time: 103 minutes
    Director: Dennis Dugan
    Producers: Jack Giarrapulo, Adam Sandler
    Writers: Adam Sandler, Fred Wolf
    Casts: Adam Sandler, Chris Rock, Kevin James, David Spade, Salma Hayek, Rob Schneider
    Plot: "Grown Ups" starring Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock, Rob Schneider and David Spade, is a comedy about five friends and former teammates who reunite years later to honour the passing of their childhood basketball coach. With their wives (Salma Hayek, Maria Bello, Maya Rudolph) and kids in tow, they spend the Fourth of July holiday weekend together at the lake house where they celebrated their championship years earlier. Picking up where they left off, they discover why growing old doesn't mean growing up.

    THE VERDICT

    Grown Ups in general serves no differences from any of the other movies that made Adam Sandler who he is today. It is a bold attempt to recycle the same old scanty and slapstick humour for more poking jokes. It is still a movie with lots of feel good in it tainted with some rubbish comedy that means exclusively for Sandler's fan. Enjoyable but not the best we have seen from Sandler.
