Abstract

The American film "Grown-ups", directed by Dennis Dugan and starring Adam Sandler and Kevin James, is a comedy set in an American town. It was released in the United States on June 25, 2010 and welcomed as a wonderful comedy movie. As far as the narrative style of the film is concerned, "Grown-ups" is in line with the classic narrative mode of comedy movies, and provides a good model for Chinese comedy movies. This paper interprets the theme of family love in the film from three perspectives of flash back narrative, hidden narrative and multi-cue narrative, which shows the various problems of kinship, friendship, love and work that people need to face when people grow up. The film makes people laugh, brings back their memory of childhood and touches people’s heart. It is an enviable life comedy, and touches people deeply by the love of the family.
