GROWN UPS 2 is a comedy about a group of friends who try to rediscover their childhoods but end up in a running feud with the local college kids. It is rated 12 for crude humour and comic violence.

One of the film's recurring jokes involves breaking wind and is fairly typical of the type of humour employed. Other scenes include: a man ogling a group of women in an exercise class; the men in an audience ogling a female dance teacher as she performs with their children; and a group of scantily clad men washing a car as they press their crotches and buttocks against the car windows. All of these scenes include close up shots of cleavages, backsides and crotches, albeit that no nudity is shown.

The comic violence is mostly confined to the confrontations between the main adult characters and the local college kids. The men are forced to jump naked into a quarry pool, while a mass brawl shows the rival groups exchanging punches, kicks and wrestling throws. Nobody is seen to incur any injury as a result of the violence and it is egos rather than bodies that end up bruised.

No-one younger than 12 may see a 12A film in a cinema unless accompanied by an adult. No-one younger than 12 may rent or buy a 12 rated video or DVD.
