Is Adam Sandler in That's My Boy still our funny man or, in this case, boy?
Adam Sandler plays Donny Berger, a high school student who had an affair with his teacher, Mary McGarricle (Eva Amurri Martino). After she is caught and flung into jail and him high-fived for his "cool" feat, one would have thought he might get away with this except that a child is borne out of this fling. His son, Han Solo Berger, leaves him at the age of 18 and the young dude feels no need to chase after him. But now with the choice of paying up his hefty debt of $43,000, or going behind the bars, he seeks his son, now named a swankier Todd Peterson (Andy Samberg), a successful, wealthy hedge fund manager about to wed his lovely wife (Leighton Meester).
Sandler used to be such a funny man and every movie he starred in was great entertainment for both family and friends. Sadly, his recent works seem to be less and less entertaining and more so a joke in itself.
Feminists will be greatly offended by how females are portrayed in this movie – mainly a nymphomaniac. And slapstick film buffs may not be able to take the extent or how ridiculous the jokes are, whether off-colour, racist or embarrassment jokes. Not the mention, the jokes are outdated as well.
Sorry, Sandler and fans, but That's My Boy is best left unwatched.
