There is no Grown Ups 3 movie, not yet, but the script is written and everyone is talking about it.
Tom Scharpling is a successful comedy writer who loves Adam Sandler. He loves him so much that he says he thinks he saw Happy Gilmore something like thirty times in theaters.
While Scharpling does not defend every Sandler title, his obsession with him and his movies led him to tackle writing a version of Grown Ups 3, a movie he thinks we all deserve.
Tons of celebs like Adam McKay have been tweeting out Scharpling’s script, mostly because of how fun and weird it is. I took the morning and read it… it’s insane. The script starts out as a regular Grown Ups movie, with the gang attending the Rob Schneider character’s funeral, but it quickly shifts into slasher territory, with a ton of twists along the way.
I found the pages turning fast, and I laughed way more than I anticipated.
While there’s a slim chance anyone will ever make this movie, it’s worth the read.
