'Grown Ups 2' has worlds-greatest '80s party scene



Adam Sandler has an '80s fetish that casts a tremendous shadow over Stuck in the '80s. Afterall, it was his 1998 flick The Wedding Singer that first relit my fire for the music and culture of that decade. Sandler almost without exception uses '80s music in every film, but he surpassed himself by staging an all-out '80s Party in Grown Ups 2.

Chris Rock as Prince. Sandler as Bruce Springsteen. David Spade as Oates (with his son as Hall). Kevin James at Meatloaf. Also in attendance, amazing costumes for Donald Trump, Richard Simmons, Papa Smurf, Boy George, Hulk Hogan, Mr. T, Indiana Jones AND ... a special concert performance by the J. Geils Band.

If you EVER want to throw an '80s-themed party, watch Grown Ups 2. It's your template.
