Typical Adam Sandler -- charm mixed with crude humor.
June 2, 2008
Ending is predictably gooey but Sandler's edge staves off the sludge for long enough in an otherwise fresh and funny piece.
June 2, 2008
This light yet earnest drama starring Adam Sandler deals openly with one of the most insidious elements in popular filmmaking -- the male screenwriter's relationship with his own father.

Those expecting another run of the mill Sandler film will either be pleasantly surprised or disgusted by this foray of his into new and different territory.

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.

Funny-sweet, understand, not bleccchh sweet.

Sandler continues to bring a sweetness, irreverence and unpredictability to the screen that make hits out of his films.

I wouldn't call it good, but I'd surely call it a good time.

Sandler's latest film isn't much of step up from those previous encounters, but it retains all of their good-natured affability.

A sure sign of a pending apocalypse: I enjoyed Adam Sandler's new movie.
January 1, 2000
Adam Sandler's sweetness just busts out all over. It's a wondrous thing to watch.

Big Daddy is clear evidence that -- for the moment at least -- this pony doesn't need a new trick.
January 1, 2000
Funny and cute!
January 1, 2000
Big Daddy is surprisingly sentimental and consistently amusing.

A sweet, sentimental and broadly entertaining salute to fathers and sons.
