That's My Boy

Critics 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.

All Critics (114) | Top Critics (30) | Fresh (23) | Rotten (91)

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

    Sep 5, 2012 | Rating: 3/5
  • It points you toward the irresistible conclusion that for all his success Sandler feels only contempt for his audience and tremendous insecurity about his own stature in the comedy universe.

  • Surprisingly mean-spirited from start to finish.

  • Sandler's latest wicked pissah, a paean to let-it-all-hang-out party-guy sloppiness...

  • If someone told you about almost every joke in That's My Boy, you would think they were either a sociopath or a budding serial killer.

    Jun 16, 2012 | Rating: 0/5 | Full Review…
  • Vulgar, tasteless, mean-spirited and most offensive of all--not funny.

    That's My Boy started off hilarious & was funny up until the teacher went off to prison & the kid grew up.After that the movie started going downhill.It did have a ton of funny LOL moments but it's just not a movie I'd rent, buy or ever watch it again.I guess the start of the movie got my hopes up that I thought I was going to like this movie so I was disappointed that I didn't.Too be honest, I can't even remember the last Adam Sandler movie I actually liked

    Dealing with the penalties of unplanned parenthood as well as the consequences of abandoning his teen aged son Todd "Han Sol Berger" Peterson (Andy Samberg), Donny Berger (Adam Sandler) is forced to re-unite with his son for financial reasons. To clear his debt he arranges to see the woman (responsible for his son's birth and his deflowering process...) along with his son at a location where Todd's mother is doing time. Low brow comedy is what keeps this movie somewhat afloat. Seeing this will help to pass the time as you discover the collage of stars that you remember from way back when they were stars...LOL! Have fun trying this one on for your viewing displeasure.
