Joe Dirt 2: Beautiful Loser Trailer


Still stuck with a fairly ridiculous mullet, Joe Dirt returns after an unsuccessful attempt at reconnecting with his parents, who abandoned him as a child by the Grand Canyon. He seems to be in a better place now, living in a trailer with his new wife Brandy and their three triplet daughters, but things are about to be turned upside down yet again when a terrifying twister hits Silvertown. In Wizard Of Oz style, he finds himself suddenly transported into unfamiliar territory, which he soon discovers is the mid-sixties. Desperate to be re-united with his family, he sets out on a long journey hitting many obstacles along the way; from an angry group of bikers to his present day gangster friend, who was apparently less than interested in being buddies in his younger years. But that's not the biggest threat to him; if he's not careful, he could prevent his future's domestic bliss from ever occurring.

Grown Ups 2 Review


Terrible

There was nothing remotely notable about 2010's Grown Ups, and now we have a sequel that's even lazier. Without any actual plot to speak of, the movie merely strings together a series of unfunny scenes that include cheap gags and childish vulgarity but never a punchline. Sure, the scattershot approach might occasionally touch on recognisable situations, but there isn't a genuine laugh in the whole film.

After the reunion in the original movie, Lenny (Sandler) has moved back to his hometown with pals Eric, Kurt and Marcus (James, Rock and Spade). They're planning a big party just like in the old days, complete with a 1980s theme. But their children are getting older and have their own issues, including first dates and driving tests. And in Marcus' case, the kid is a teen thug (Ludwig) he only just discovered he had. But the real problem is that the guys have just sparked a turf war with a gang of idiotic fratboys from the nearby university. And now they have to prove once and for all who's really cool.

As with the first movie, you get the feeling that everyone on screen has somewhere better to be. There's no character development at all, since there are so many people spread across so many short scenes. Hayek, Bello and Rudolph are back as the guys' wives, but get exactly one thankless thing to do each. And it's not much better for the supporting cast of A-list cameo players like Buscemi (as a driving instructor), Lautner (as the fraternity leader) and so many more recognisable actors that you begin to wonder what dirt Sandler has on all of them.
