The Glorious Life of a Man Child, as Seen in Movies

Old rivalries never die.

The movie: Grown Ups (2010)
The player(s): Adam Sandler, Kevin James, Chris Rock, David Spade and Rob Schneider

If you've ever imagined what the kids in 1979's Meatballs might be doing nowadays, Grown Ups is it. The SNL orgy (plus Kevin James) reunites a group of childhood friends 30 years after high school graduation to relive the glory days of a 1978 basketball championship and, of course, stage a rematch against the guys they beat (with Colin Quinn as their opponents' ringleader). Three decades does much to hurt a man's athletic abilities.
