In hindsight, 1990 was a particularly momentous year for the cast of Grown Ups 2. That was the season that Lorne Michaels made Adam Sandler, Chris Rock and David Spade regular cast members on Saturday Night Live, the show that launched each of their careers and made them household names. Rob Schneider was also cast that season, but since he doesn’t appear to be in this sequel, we are more than comfortable forgetting about him.
Many other Grown Ups 2 players are also SNL alums: Maya Rudolph, Colin Quinn, Andy Samberg, Bobby Moynihan and Taran Killam all show up in varying capacities. That probably makes it pretty awkward for Kevin James, who has never appeared on the show. Sorry, Kevin.
Of course, for many of these comedians, SNL marked the highlight of their careers, and some haven’t been all that funny since. Let’s take a look back at their best moments from the sketch-comedy staple, and try to forget how far they’ve fallen in the years that have passed. We can’t promise that watching these clips will make you forget about That’s My Boy, but it couldn’t hurt.
Notes to Maya Rudolph and Andy Samberg: You guys are still funny. Just stop taking meetings with Adam Sandler’s agent. Chris Rock, you’re on probation. Maybe you should give Kevin Smith a call. You were awesome in Dogma.
