Correct me if I'm wrong, I don't remember two women talking about something other than a man. Even if two women did, I still think this movie flops completely. The women in this movie were either shamelessly objectified, or were portrayed as mindless dummies who did nothing but fawn over the men. The scene with the fitness instructor was particularly cringe worthy. I was very disappointed in this movie, considering the first Grown Ups passed this test with flying colors. FAIL!

"Even if..." it did pass the test, I think it shouldn't. Then make up your own test and rate it.

Three women had a conversation about having children in the beginning of the fitness instructor scene.

I disagree with the rating. The women talked about their kids and families in the movie, so I would say it passed the test.

I don't remember their names, but Chris Rock's daughter and Kevin James' daughter talk about being excited to be sophomores in high school.
