Who's the funny man in "Grown Ups"?

Who makes the reunion comics playing "Grown Ups" laugh most when they're offscreen?
That's what I asked Adam Sandler, David Spade, Chris Rock and Kevn James durig a recent press conference for the film, which opens Friday.
Here's how they answered:
Sandler: "Everyone has their own thing. I'll tell you that Spade is incredibly funny. He drops the most destruction bombs on you. He's quick as hell.

"Everybody has their moments. KJ is incredibly funny and has different ways of being funny in conversation. How's this, when KJ texts me I laugh like a baboon for like five minutes alone and I don't write that LOL, because I'm a comedian and I think that other comedians will go, 'Are you (friggin') kidding me? You wrote LOL?' So I just write back, 'Good one!'
"Rock is one of the funniest guys I've ever seen in my life with just summing up something and just having a different slant on it where you're just like, 'That is amazingly accurate and I can't believe that I've never said that out loud or never even thought that,' but he makes you think. For the record, (Rob) Schneider (who was unavailable to talk to the press) is one of the funniest guys you'll ever meet. He's ridiculously fast and funny and we miss him here right now."

Rock: "Sandler in "Chuck and Larry" is about the hardest I’ve ever laughed in person."
James: "Some of the hardest laughs I’ve ever had in my enter life came from the Sandman. Honestly, I mean, just crying. As a comedian you get used to it, but when he makes you laugh out loud . . . I mean, it's something else."
Spade: "If you think even two of the five of us are funny, you'll be fine with this movie. And Schneider is a great cook."

I'm not a big Rob Schneider fan. I haven't seen the movie yet - does he keep up with the rest of these guys in this movie? He just doesn't seem to be of the same caliber.
