Apparently the world demanded another family-friendly version of “The Hangover,” one that combined scatological comedy with smarmy sentimentality. So Adam Sandler has obliged with this sequel to 2010’s “Grown Ups.” I guess the world should be grateful that he didn’t make a sequel to “Jack and Jill” (2011).
Since last seen on the screen, super-agent Lenny Feder (Sandler), waxing nostalgic after a visit to his rustic hometown in New England and missing his childhood pals, has given up his fast-lane Hollywood life and moved back to the old neighborhood with his wife, Roxanne (Salma Hayek), and three kids. Besides, how else can a film open with a rampant deer peeing on someone unless it takes place in the country? As someone once said, there’s no place like home.
