A single father finds his lackluster parenting skills coming back to haunt him in this Adam Sandler comedy directed by Sean Anders (Sex Drive). As a teenage father, Donny (Sandler) struggled to raise his son Todd (Andy Samberg) until Todd was old enough to strike out on his own. Subsequently estranged from his father for years, Todd is about to marry the love of his life when Donny turns up determined to form the father-son bond they never had. Now the harder Donny tries to connect with his long-lost son, the more furious Todd's future bride grows with the unwelcomed intruder and his obnoxious antics. Leighton Meester and James Caan co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
Not sure what Adam Sandler was thinking here. By far one of his worst movies. My wife and I have always laughed at his films, unfortunately this was a giant exception. Very poorly written and definitely not funny. My wife wanted to walk out at the half way mark. It never got better, we should have left when she wanted. Complete waste of time.
One of the weakest films that Adam Sandler has done, That's My Boy is partially amusing when it's not busy silencing guts much of the time. There are many jokes here that don't work well. Crude and obnoxious characters rise up front throughout the movie.
I have been quite disappointed by most of the recent Adam Sandler movies, I thought they were no where near as funny as the trailers made them out to be, BUT I thought this movie was GREAT and FUNNY, I actually laughed out loud a few times, something I rarely do. Usually I only have a little chuckle while watching comedies. Of course this is a stupid unrealistic movie, but it actually made me laugh and enjoy watching it.
HYS---TERICAL! Hands down Adam Sandler's BEST and funniest movie. Every scene was funny - It's like 2 hours of laughter! Sandler's Boston accent is AWESOME! Ever wonder about the circumstances behind HOTT teacher-student relationships that are ALWAYS in the news? Or the children that are the result of them? How about incest? Intercourse with elderly ladies? HAHA! All these are hysterically portrayed in the movie. Vanilla Ice was awesome! Apparently, he now works deep frying chicken nuggets at concession stand. They even pulled out Vanilla Ice's 5.0 Mustang Convt from his Ice Ice Baby video. Andy Samburg, James Caan, Todd Bridges (Willis on Different Strokes) were very funny. Dude - even Rex Ryan, NY Jet's coach, has a part in the movie. YO - toke a little - then watch it - you'll laugh your azz off!!!
This is a unique film. Not often can the subjects of child abuse, pedophilia, and incest be combined into a "comedy".
Adam Sandler must have been trying to see how far he could push an audience and still have them sit through the film.
I can understand "stars" like Vanilla Ice and Todd Bridges doing anything for a quick buck, but for actors like James Caan to go from the Godfather to this - in one lifetime - is a bit depressing.
Susan Sarandon should be asked to return her Oscar for even participating in this mess.
It was good to see Tony Orlando in his role, even though he looks like he ate Dawn.
To Adam Sandler fans, this film makes Little Nikki look like Shakespear. View at your own risk.
This was bad even by Adam Sandler standards! I thought I'd give this a chance because we thought his last one Jack and Jill was okay and had funny moments...but this was really really bad. To the point of really being awkward and unwatchable.
very disappointing, esp. given the trailers. has a plot that just drags and is not very funny. I don't mind stupid comedies but when it's just stupid period, it's not worth watching and that's what this movie was. I shut it off before the halfway point because it was that bad unfortunately.
