They're a glamorous family, the Caseys. Johnny Casey, his two brothers Ed and Liam, their beautiful, talented wives and all their kids spend a lot of time together - birthday parties, anniversary celebrations, weekends away. And they're a happy family. Johnny's wife, Jessie - who has the most money - insists on it. Under the surface, though, conditions are murkier. While some people clash, other people like each other far too much. Everything stays under control until Ed's wife Cara, gets concussion and can't keep her thoughts to herself. One careless remark at Johnny's birthday party, with the entire family present, starts Cara spilling out all their secrets. In the subsequent unravelling, every one of the adults finds themselves wondering if it's time - finally - to grow up?

What the critics say

It is charming, funny and poignant. But also profound, heartbreaking. If you already love Marian, this is her best yet. If you haven't read her, this is the one Nina Stibbe Messy, tangled complex humans who reminded me that few of us ever really sort out our lives at all Jojo Moyes Magnificently messy lives, brilliantly untangled. Funny, tender and completely absorbing! Graham Norton I loved every word of Grown Ups. I will be missing those gorgeous vibrant characters for many weeks to come.
