Grown Ups 3? It is a well accepted fact that Adam Sandler will occasionally create a cheesy comedy in order to have a paid vacation with his pals. ‘Grown Ups’ is an example of this type of humor.
The story follows five lifelong friends who reconvene three decades later for a 4th of July weekend after learning of their mentor’s death. One would expect ‘Grown Ups,’ which stars Sandler with Kevin James, Chris Rock, David Spade, Rob Schneider, and Nick Swardson, to be a comedy with a lot of chuckles.
However, the film’s plot has split reviewers and the public. Critics panned the picture because of its predictability, immaturity, and lack of self-awareness. On Rotten Tomatoes, it has a dismal 10% approval rating.
It was, nonetheless, a huge commercial success. ‘Grown Ups,’ which had a budget of $80 million and made $271.4 million, is Sandler’s highest-grossing picture to date. In 2013, a sequel was released, which reunited the ensemble and took place three years after the events of the original film.
The film was once again slammed by critics, who gave it a 7% Rotten Tomatoes score and called it sluggish, dull, and even nasty. ‘Grown Ups 2’, on the other hand, was a huge box office hit, generating $247 million worldwide on an $80 million budget.
It’s been over seven years, and we’re wondering if the series will be expanded into a trilogy. Is there anything else in store for us? Here’s what we know thus far.
What Could the Plot of Grown Ups 3 Be About?
There have been rumors and suspicions regarding a third installment of ‘Grown Ups,’ but nothing has been verified. As a result, there’s no way of knowing what route the picture will take if it ever gets made.
However, given how the previous two portions function, we may expect to see the five buddies reunite once more. Sandler’s Lenny returns to Connecticut with his family in the sequel to be closer to Eric, Kurt, Marcus, and Rob. However, as things take an unexpected turn, the five must conquer new hurdles.
Roxanne also becomes pregnant in the film. Lenny ultimately comes to his senses near the end of the film, apologizes to her, and the two reunite. It’s fair to presume that the story will be continued in a third installment. It might either focus on Roxanne’s pregnancy or, like it did previously, take a time jump.
Tom Sharping, for example, took to Twitter last month to offer a funny spec script he wrote for ‘Grown Ups 3’. In his leisure time, he wrote the 52-page screenplay for a good chuckle and, of course, to commemorate the series.
It begins with Lenny, Eric, Kurt, and Marcus attending Rob’s funeral, only to breach the fourth wall to show that the scenario is actually being filmed for ‘Grown Ups 3’.
Sandler, Spade, James, and Rock ultimately travel on another vacation, only to discover that there is a serial murderer on the loose. Check out Sharping’s spec script here if you’re looking for a good chuckle.
Who Could Be in the Cast of Grown Ups 3?
Sandler plays Lenny, Kevin James plays Eric, Chris Rock plays Kurt, David Spade plays Marcus, and Rob Schneider plays Rob in ‘Grown Ups.’ Roxanne is played by Salma Hayek, Sally is played by Maria Bello, Deanne is played by Maya Rudolph, and Gloria is played by Joyce Van Patten.
It also includes Jake Goldberg, Cameron Boyce, and a number of other actors. Schneider did not return for the sequel, and was replaced by Nick Swardson, who plays Rob’s brother, Nick. If a sequel to ‘Grown Ups’ is ever made, the cast will have to repeat their roles as they did in the previous two films.
While a sequel to ‘Grown Ups’ has yet to be announced and may never be, both Salma Hayek and Maria Bello have revealed in the past that they have discussed developing one. However, whether or if one will ever materialize is a matter entirely.
Who Could Be Behind Grown Ups 3’s Crew?
Dennis Dugan directed both ‘Grown Ups’ pictures, which were based on a story by Adam Sandler and Fred Wolf. Sandler and Jack Giarraputo are co-producers on the movie.
Dugan is well-known for his collaborations with Sandler, and the two have worked together on a number of films, including ‘Big Daddy,’ ‘You Don’t Mess with the Zohan,’ ‘Happy Gilmore,’ ‘Just Go with It,’ and others. If a third installment of ‘Grown Ups’ is ever made, we may anticipate Dug and Sandler to reunite.
When Is Grown Ups 3 Going to Be Released?
With a great performance in the highly praised ‘Uncut Gems,’ Adam Sandler has recently regained his charm. ” That’s how I get my hands on them.” While this was most likely said in fun, it does give ‘Grown Ups 3’ some optimism, given there hasn’t been much more mentioned in the movie.
Except for sharping’s amazing spec script, which recently went viral on Twitter. Now, if the script could be brought to life, it would be a dream come true. It does, however, appear to be a little far-fetched at the time. But, well, who knows? If we do get a third installment of ‘Grown Ups,’ it won’t be until 2024 or later.
