You've got a point there
You see in this filmmaking world there's two types of people my friend. Those with the knowledge of film and those who think they do but really don't.

I knew this would get nominated for the People's Choice Awards for "Comedy Movie" and "Comedic Star"(Sandler),but I don't know the odds it has.

What little? How can they call themselves People's Choice? We don't like movies about p****** and passing gas! Where's the appeal in Adam Sandler?!

He's the posterboy for movie-goers who just want to turn off their brains and laugh at stupid s*** that even a two year old could write at 2 in the morning.

Examples of the kind of people you referred to (movie-goers who just want to turn off their brains and laugh at stupid s***) include: 
 
My cousin -- seriously he's 18 and should be more open to classics (however unlikely that is). Thankfully I have another cousin who's his opposite. 
 
Young kids 
 
Twihards and gore porn-holics 
 
This begs the question... HAVE MOVIEGOERS REALLY SUNK THIS LOW?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

In this day and age of remakes/reboots/sequels and other half-assed jobs Hollywood is making, if an okay/kinda good/or so-so movie comes along, people act like it's the second coming of "Gone With The Wind". Others just want to be entertained, and the people you listed are the ones that are easily entertained by Sandler and his stupidity.

Yeah, coz unlike us they don't seem to notice the fact that Adam Sandler in his 'Forrest Gump only more Retarded' mode (where's Paul Thomas Anderson when you need him) is so bad it makes any Disney Channel comedy actor look like one of our British stand-up comics (we have a long list of these guys).

1)FORREST GUMP was "slow," not retarded...  

2)The male cast of "SONNY" WITH A CHANCE is funnier than Russell Brand. Oh,snap!

GROWN UPS is, hands down, the worst movie I've seen this year.

I would agree, but there are a couple of highly likely Razzie nominees that I haven't seen yet, so I am reserving final judgment...

Yeah, but like Miguel and I said, many of the main contenders are already on DVD for our viewing "displeasure."

I just saw it.

Not only it's the worst Sandler movie,it's so bad you can now proof to his fans why:
1)The concept of "good comedy" is very subjective because we all have different taste in humour.But here,even if you find it funny,you can't deny the jokes are predictable(specially when Steve Buscemi tries that stunt at the waterpark)and we've seen them all.And if that doesn't work,point out that there's not one but two rape jokes.
2)The scripts always come with flaws.But here,the plot is virtually non-existent(what the f*ck is this movie about?!).Everytime there's about to be a dramatic moment,it gets solved before it even starts,so the movie lacks any real conflict.
3)I get why people think he's funny.But here,he has a straight face the whole movie(except a scene where they run in panic and he has the most stupid face you can imagine).At least in other movies he tries every 20 minutes or so.By the way,how was he not nominated but Schnider was when he was average?James,Rock and Spade do their usual things,and they're passable.

Also,during the last part,the messages arrive,but they don't make sense at all.

I give this 1/10.
