The new UK Trailer for Grown Ups has hit the web, and it promises to feature more of the generic, mind-numbing humor that have become the hallmark of the careers of the featured comedians. Seriously though, this one features more jokes relating to the kids. Other than that, you can see most of the scintillating scenes on display in the earlier trailer of the film. Hit the jump for the trailer, and leave your thoughts in the comments.

Columbia Pictures has released the teaser trailer for the new Adam Sandler comedy Grown Ups. The film stars Chris Rock, Kevin James, David Spade, Rob Schneider, Salma Hayek, Steve Buscemi, Maria Bello, Gary Busey and David Spade, and is directed by Dennid Dugan, the filmmaker behind of some of Sandler’s earlier films like Happy Gilmore and Big Daddy, but who recently has been responsible for some comic clunkers like I Now Pronouce You Chuck & Larry, and You Don’t Mess with the Zohan.
Five friends and former teammates reunite years later to honor the passing of their childhood basketball coach. With their wives and kids in tow, they spend the Fourth of July holiday weekend together at the lake house where they celebrated their championship years earlier. Picking up where they left off, they discover why growing older doesn’t mean growing up.
It looks like a fairly generic comedy, even more so than the recent Sander efforts. Almost makes you wish that Sandler was still making second rate romantic comedies with Drew Barrymore again. You know, when they at least featured a few good jokes. And what is that on Kevin James’ face? That can’t be a beard, is it? Watch the full teaser trailer after the jump, and leave your thoughts in the comments ago.
You’ve seen Red Dawn, but you haven’t seen anything until you’ve seen Naked Dawn, Jake Szymanski‘s new Funny or Die’s parody which stars Rob Schneider, Mena Suvari and Vinnie Jones. Can you imagine an 80’s action movie at a nudist’s camp? What if the Russians attacked the U.S.? What if Rob Schneider was our last hope? What if he was naked? NSFW! Watch it after the jump.

Rapper Busta Rhymes’ new movie Order of Redemption started shooting yesterday WITHOUT Rhymes. Apparently the NYPD scared the rapper away: “The production agreed that Busta Rhymes would not be participating in the scenes shot here after the Police Department raised public safety concerns.” Director Jeff Celentano is pissed: “This is tremendously unfair to Busta, who has been nothing but professional during this project. This is a bigger loss for the city of New York.”
Neil LaBute (In the Company of Men) is in negotiations to direct and Ashton Kutcher is in talks to co-star in Screen Gems’ thriller Lakeview Terrace, which follows an LAPD officer (Samuel L. Jackson) who will stop at nothing to force out the interracial couple (Kerry Washington & Kutcher) that moved in next door.
