While in his teenage years, Donny fathered a son, Todd, and raised him as a single parent up until Todd’s 18th birthday. Now, after not seeing each other for years, Todd’s world comes crashing down when Donny resurfaces just before Todd’s wedding.
You can always be guaranteed for a good laugh with an Adam Sandler film and That’s My Boy is no exception, even though the film does touch on the border line with the young Sandler character being seduced by his teacher who in turn gives birth to a child that he has to bring up on his own.
You’re not going to get as many belly laughs that you may have had with some of the earlier Adam Sandler movies, but there are still plenty of laughs to have you laughing out loud in the cinema.
Some of the regulars that you see in most Sandler movies are here in this one such as Blake Clark, but sadly no Scheinder.
But there is a brilliant part for Vanilla Ice as himself and he pokes fun at himself brilliantly as “Uncle Vin”, I was it fits and giggles each time he came on the screen and there is a good comedic chemistry with him and Adam Sandler.
There’s plenty of those one-liners and gags to have you laughing and Sandler is playing his part with that Little Nicky style voice that is not only annoying to listen to but strangely comic at the same time.
A little bit of bad taste is thrown in for measure such as the “tissue scene” with a photograph of Grandma D, that’s all I’m saying about that one, you’ll have to see the it to now what I’m talking about
I have to say that Adam Sandler still has what it takes to bring us a good comedy and That’s My Boy does have some rather funny moments, like I said it’s not his best movie, but it’s a film that will certainly bring a nice smile to your face.
Overall Thoughts For That’s My Boy
Not one of Adam Sandler’s best movies, but it’s still going to bring you some giggles along the way. Go see this if you like Adam Sandler and love daft films.
