Five tired comic actors (Kevin James, Rob Schneider, Chris Rock, Adam Sandler, David Spade, in approximate order of increasing lassitude), in a matchingly washed-out image, assemble for the funeral of their childhood basketball coach, panning for a few grains of middle-aged masculine truth and coming up completely empty, everything strained, forced, formularized into falsity. Not to be mistaken for Mike Leigh’s early, hilarious, truthful, and properly punctuated Grown-Ups. Salma Hayek, Maya Rudolph, Maria Bello, Steve Buscemi; directed by Dennis Dugan. (2010) — Duncan Shepherd
