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

Not nearly as terrible as burped-out Sandler disasters of recent years, there's enough funny stuff here to remind us of his talent.

Say what you like about Sandler - his fans simply ignore all the critical contempt - his ability to get A-list talent to dive into his comic world is extraordinary...Leighton Meester deserves a special bravery award for signing up to do this.

A father-and-child reunion so ridiculous, it's kind of sublime.

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

Let's talk about Sandler, because he's doing a character here. You wonder is it gonna be a Little Nicky thing, Jack and Jill, where it gets annoying? No, I laughed and never got sick of this character.

Everything about That's My Boy is offensive. I cannot explain why I liked it. I guess even playing an offensive, vile, self-centered cretin, Sandler is likable.

Adam Sandler just might have made the funniest movie of his career: a dysfunctional father-son comedy that also rather astutely comments on the public's perception of Sandler himself.

God help me. I actually liked an Adam Sandler movie! OK, let me re-phrase that. I didn't hate an Adam Sandler movie, for once. (Full Content Review for Parents also available)

Laughs aren't guaranteed, but the movie provokes (which is a big step up).

Their film is a huge, sloppy mess, far too long, but with some rowdy and rambunctious laughs.

Of course, it's no Punch Drunk Love, but you gotta pay the bills somehow. I get it.

[I'm] the kind who needs Adam Sandler to keep making deplorable garbage like this. I will watch it and I will enjoy myself and I will have no excuse for it and I will remain un-sorry.

That's My Boy lazily exists in a fantasyland of Adam Sandler's perpetual adolescence, even as it generates some moderate comic friction from Sandler and Andy Samberg's testy back-and-forth.
June 15, 2012
On some level I marveled at the conviction that Adam Sandler pours into playing a character like Donny Berger, a boneheaded, loud-mouthed alcoholic loser from Boston.

The funniest movie Adam Sandler has made since 50 First Dates.
June 14, 2012
That's My Boy turns out not only to be the title of the movie, but something Sandler's poor, suffering fans can say to each other as they acknowledge that their hero is back.

"That's My Boy" isn't "Happy Gilmore" or even "The Waterboy," but it's got its moments.
June 14, 2012
I wouldn't dare recommend That's My Boy to the average filmgoer. It's reserved for Sandler fans who've come to expect a certain velocity of stupidity from their doofus king.
June 14, 2012
Despite their assorted vulgarities and lack of polish, the films of Adam Sandler are remarkably consistent in their own particular way.
