When you think of cheesy American comedy, you automatically think of Adam Sandler’s Grown Ups. But, will Grown Ups 3 ever be released?
Will the third instalment of Grown Ups ever be released after its great and somewhat surprising box office success for two consecutive films? Let’s see what we can find out!
Expected Plot of Grown Ups 3
The original Grown Ups film starred Lenny, Eric, Kurt, Marcus, and Rob, five boyhood friends who reunited after 30 years at the funeral of their basketball coach, ‘Buzzer.’
The pals reminisce about their troubled marriages, alienated children, and a lot of immature jokes as they disperse the ashes of their beloved coach! Grown Ups 2 was the sequel to the previous film, which centred on Lenny’s trip as he returned to his hometown to see his wacky buddies — for the second time!
Every minute was loaded with humour, and the audience was crying – just like in a comedic cult film. Perhaps it is for this reason that most critics labelled this comedy as “immature.”
Grown Ups 3 Possible Story
Of course, no official announcement for Grown Ups 3 has yet been made, but it appears that fans are ahead of the game’s creators. They believe the third act of the film will pick up where the second left off.
Lenny is expected to return to Connecticut to reunite with his buddies for the last time, however each will face their own challenges. Roxanne Chase-Feder was pregnant in Grown Ups 2. So perhaps Grown Ups 3 will focus on some of that trip. Sandler’s production firm, Happy Maddison Productions, produced the film, which was distributed by Columbia Pictures.
Cast of Grown Ups 3
Who will be in the cast of Grown Ups 3? Since the release of the second instalment, fans have been asking this question. If the third instalment is released, most of the original cast members are anticipated to reunite. After all, why wouldn’t they?
They had a lot of success thanks to the film franchise. Among the classic Grown Ups cast members were —
- Adam Sandler as Lenny Feder
- Kevin James as Eric Lamonsoff
- Chris Rock as Kurt McKenzie
- David Spade as Marcus Higgins
- Loot Schneider as Rob Hillard
- Salma Hayek as Roxanne Chase-Feder
- Maria Bello as Sally Lamonsoff
- Maya Rudolph as Dean McKenzie
These were the main show-stoppers. However, there was a slew of others who provided comedic relief. Not to mention the fact that Adam Sandler was one of the writers! If a third installment of the comic film is ever made, the original cast members should reprise their roles.
In fact, both Salma Hayek and Maria Bello have stated that they would love to star in a Grown Ups 3 sequel. And the fans are overjoyed! Both parts of Grown Ups are currently available to watch on Netflix.
Did The Grown Ups Franchise Win Any Awards?
Being the light-hearted comedy, it’s obvious that Grown Ups franchise won’t be up for an Oscars. But it did get nominated in weird categories. Like when Rob Schneider got nominated for the Razzie Award for the Worst Supporting Actor! And guess what?
He didn’t win that as well and lost to Jackson Rathbore for The Last Airbender and Twilight Saga- Eclipse. But Grown Ups did win the 2011 MTV Movie Awards for the Best Line in a Movie category for the dialogue, delivered by the character Becky.
Reviews And Ratings
The Grown Ups franchise may be adored by fans but it did not go down well with critics. With a 3.5/10 score on Rotten Tomatoes, critics claimed the film to have flat direction and a stunted script. But this review sure did not affect the Box Office collections by any means!
Grown Ups 1 made $162 million dollars in America alone! The profit margin was so much that after the success of the first movie, Adam Sandler gifted his 4 co-stars a brand new Maserati sports car each!
Is Grown Ups 3 Really Happening?
Despite the film franchise being a conversation starter, the possibility of Grown Ups 3 seems a little far-fetched. Adam Sandler recently won back his acclaim after his mind-blowing performance in Uncut Gems. But unfortunately for fans, Grown Ups 3 is not a conversation anymore. If you ever feel like a good laugh, you can always go back to binging the first two parts of this iconic comic movie.
