Film Critic Quote of the Week

Dan Fienberg on "Grown Ups":

"Grown Ups" is the least funny theatrical release that any of its stars have ever been a part of. 
I just want to let that sink in, because Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock, David Spade and Rob Schneider have combined to be in some truly unfunny movies.
"Grown Ups" has fewer laughs than "The Benchwarmers," "Little Nicky" or "Lost & Found." It has fewer chuckles than either of the Deuce Bigalow movies. It has fewer chortles than "Paul Blart: Mall Cop" and fewer guffaws than "Head of State."..

[Note: I haven't seen Schneider's direct-to-video prison rape comedy "Big Stan," so I added the "theatrical release" proviso just in case.]

Put that on the poster- "'Grown Ups'- Better Than Prison Rape!"
