It really depends on what you're looking to see.

This may be enough for you:

dsquery group -samid "Domain Admins" | dsget group -members -expand | dsget user -display

That will find the Domain Admins group and list all of the members display names.

This is VBS code that will dump the groupmembers from a group.     It was in my library of sample code but I don't know where I originally got it otherwise I'd credit the author....  

Basically save the script as 'listusers.vbs'
Then run
CSCRIPT listusers.vbs <groupname>

On Error Resume Next
Dim objGrp, colArgs, objNetwork,objShell
Set objShell=CreateObject("wscript.shell")
set objNetwork=CreateObject("WScript.Network")
set colArgs=wscript.Arguments
 
'you can pass a group name as a parameter, otherwise you will be prompted.
if colArgs(0)="" then
 strGrpName=InputBox("Enter the name of the group to dump.  You quotes around names with spaces.",_
 "Group Info",CHR(34) & "Domain Admins" & Chr(34))
 else
strGrpName = colArgs(0)
end If
 
Set objGrp = GetObject("WinNT://" & objNetwork.UserDomain & "/" & strGrpName & ",group")
 if Err.Number <0 Then
  wscript.echo "Failed to connect to " & objNetwork.UserDomain & " or find group " & UCASE(strGrpName)
  wscript.echo "Error #"&err.number
  wscript.echo "Error Description (if available): " & err.description
  set objGrp=Nothing
  wscript.quit
 end If
icount=0
set memberlist=objGrp.Members
for each member in memberlist
'display member name and class, such as user or computer
  wscript.echo member.Name & "," & member.Class 
  icount=icount+1
Next
 
strMsg="Counted " & icount & " members of " & objNetwork.UserDomain & "\" & strGrpName
objShell.Popup strMsg,10,"Group Info",0+64
 
wscript.quit
 
'EOF
