That's My Boy (2012)



Critic Consensus: While it does represent a new foray into raunch for the normally PG-13 Sandler, That's My Boy finds him repeating himself to diminishing effect - and dragging Andy Samberg down with him.

Movie Info

While still in his teens, Donny (Adam Sandler) fathered a son, Todd (Andy Samberg), 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 on the eve of his wedding when an uninvited Donny suddenly shows up. Trying desperately to reconnect with his son, Donny is now forced to deal with the repercussions of his bad parenting skills. -- (C) Sony

All Critics (113) | Top Critics (31)

The basic joke keeps on giving and the sweetness of the parent-child bonding scenes plays well.

There is nothing creative, amusing, valuable or interesting about Sandler's work. That's My Boy isn't the worst film I have ever seen; it's just one of the saddest and most exhausting.

Full Review… | November 25, 2013

This crude and unfunny comedy is easily the worst movie of 2012.

Big Hollywood

Yet again Adam Sandler has taken a fairly clever concept for a broad comedy and just detonated it with some of the stupidest, most repetitive gags imaginable.

Full Review… | February 12, 2013

Crass comedy That's My Boy adds close-to-the-knuckle raunchiness to Sandler's usual mix of stupidity and sentimentality.

Audience Reviews for That's My Boy


Not as bad as it could have been... Somewhere in this movie is a tolerable story about an estranged father and son, and around it is the usual Sandler frat boy schtick. It's immature, it's gross, but I've got to admit: I laughed. Nowhere near as bad as Bulletproof, I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry, or Little Nicky, but can't keep up with Happy Gilmore or Billy Madison either. What you see is what you get: Sandler using the money from his past successes to give younger, funnier actors an opportunity and to keep his usual crew employed. It's forgettable, disposable work, but honestly... were you expecting anything better?

two stars!

Yep, another Sandler stinker. I honestly don't know why I keep doing it to myself. It's clear he's never going to make another Wedding Singer.
