Despicable Audience: “Grown Ups 2” Grosses $42 mil at Weekend Box Office

Adam Sandler's “Grown Ups 2” earned an abyssmal 7% rating from the movie critics on Rotten Tomatoes, an abyssmal 4.85 rating from the moviegoers on IMDb, and still managed to gross $42 million at the weekend box office—enough to finish just behind the second weekend of “Despicable Me 2” ($44.7 million), and just ahead of the sci-fi blockbuster “Pacific Rim” ($38.3 million), which earned ratings of 71% and 8.0, respectively.

What does this mean? Apparently not everybody's online and voting yet. Or reading. Or caring.

I was bummed to hear that “GU2” grossed $16 mil on Friday. I wanted Sandler to be over and done with. I wanted a fork in him. Here are the total domestic grosses for his last four comedies:

  • Grown Ups: $162 m
  • Just Go With It: $103 m
  • Jack and Jill: $74 m
  • That's My Boy: $36.9 m

Going down, down, down.

Then this.

It's like something is pissing in our face.
