Amiable, schizoid and disposable, Big Daddy is just as formulaic as you might imagine.
December 22, 2010
Typical Adam Sandler -- charm mixed with crude humor.
November 29, 2009
The heavy-handed sentimentality provokes a most violent gag reflex.

Ending is predictably gooey but Sandler's edge staves off the sludge for long enough in an otherwise fresh and funny piece.

This lightweight, bubblegum caper synthesises robust, physical humour, self-deprecation and witty one liners. The main problem, as with most other dumb boy pictures, is that the supporting characters are underwritten.

Things roll along quite charmingly, until the action hit the courtroom and gets bogged down in a boorish, maudlin custody case.

Funny-sweet, understand, not bleccchh sweet.
April 9, 2005
An essentially mean-spirited comedy.
May 20, 2003
Sandler continues to bring a sweetness, irreverence and unpredictability to the screen that make hits out of his films.
February 8, 2003
Though there are several truly funny moments in Big Daddy, they're all included in the trailer, so if you've seen it, that's all you need.
October 15, 2002
Not so bad.
September 26, 2002
...you just might wind up with a new found respect for Sandler.

Don't expect La Dolce Vita and you'll love Big Daddy.

I still enjoyed myself at Big Daddy, but I didn't leave the theater marveling at how Sandler is able to make me laugh every time.
