The new trailer for Grown Ups 2 dropped today. I truly hated the first one—really, really strongly disliked it on a Jack and Jill level—however it pulled in almost $300 million, so some people must have dug it. To each low-brow comedy his own. Tomato, tomata.
What is inarguable is how weird this cast is. You've got the four stalwarts leading things off: Sandler, Rock, Spade and James. Nothing too funny there. Then Salma Hayek and Maya Rudolph are back as two of the wives.
But then it gets weird: Shaquille O'Neal, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Steve Buscemi, Patrick Schwarzenegger (Arnold's son), Taylor Lautner, Bobby Moynihan, Andy Samberg, Erin Heatherton (you're welcome for the link) veteran standup Chris Hardwick, the YES Network's Michael Kay, and, uh, Jimmy Tatro. Paulina Gretzky was also attached at one point, but I don't see her on the film's IMDB page.
I'm sure it'll be terrible. But I can't say I'm not intrigued.
