Despite a toungue lashing from critics for the previous two instalments, director Dennis Dugan still has plans to make a third film in the Grown Ups franchise.
“There’s been talk of another Grown Ups, but I don’t know where that stands,” Dugan told The Hollywood Reporter.
Dugan is also not keen on the movie critics who trashed Grown Ups 2 upon its release, feeling that websites and magazines should have “critics who specialize in critiquing comedy”.
“To hate Grown Ups is just ludicrous,” he says. “It’s a funny movie. We didn’t mean it to be anything else but a hang-out movie, where you go sit down and get a lot of laughs from a bunch of guys just hanging out. I don’t give a fuck what [critics] think. I give a fuck that almost every one of my movies opens up number one and makes a giant profit for the studio, and people buy them, rent them, quote them and have a good time seeing them.”
Grown Ups 2 made over $246 million worldwide when it was released in 2013.
With his collaborator Adam Sandler’s latest film Pixels failing at the box office, Dugan jumped to his defense saying: “How fucking dare anybody say that he’s a shitty [entertainer].”
