Movies: ‘Grown Ups’ ‘Knight and Day’

The World

Takeaway film contributor, Rafer Guzman reviews this weekend’s big movies.

The Adam Sandler powered “Grown Ups” is positioned to lead the box office. The film follows Sandler and fellow comedians (Kevin James, Chris Rock, David Spade and Rob Schneider) who play childhood friends who still can’t quite grow up. But, says Rafer, don’t expect any surprises from this one.

In “Knight and Day” Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz join up in the fast-paced, action-comedy; and although the plot is implausible, Cruise is at his best in a long time.
