Adam Sandler and Friends Return in 'Grown Ups 2' Trailer

Grown Ups 2

In excellent news for fans of Adam Sandler and animal flatulence (two groups that, come to think of it, probably include many of the same people), Columbia Pictures has dropped the first trailer for this summer's Grown Ups 2.

The inevitable sequel to 2010's Grown Ups, which grossed nearly $275 million in spite of downright scathing reviews, Sandler's latest ensemble comedy reunites him with Kevin James, Chris Rock, and David Spade for another round of pratfalls and sight gags about what happens when childhood friends grow up and stuff.

As you might expect, the trailer doesn't waste a lot of time setting up the premise or the plot -- basically, this time around, the gang moves back to its hometown -- but plot is at least secondary with movies like this; what the audience wants is Sandlerfied laffs, and the Grown Ups 2 trailer shoots them out in bite-sized bits that also happen to include a dizzying blur of cameos from the likes of Shaquille O'Neal, Taylor Lautner, and Andy Samberg.

Watch it all unfold below -- and know that even if you aren't in the audience when Grown Ups 2 debuts on July 12, it's probably still going to make more than enough money to guarantee a Grown Ups 3.
