That's My Boy starts out in around 1984 with 14 year old Donnie Berger (Adam Sandler's younger self played by Justin Weaver) flirting with his teacher in high school, and having an inappropriate relationship with her. Culminating in a love child & huge court case where the child has to be brought up by Donnie until it's 18th birthday, which earned him flash in the pan fame & riches. As the story picks up again, a now 40 something Donnie has blown his money & in financial trouble with the IRS. Meanwhile, his estranged son Todd (Andy Samberg -Saturday Night Live) who wants nothing to do with Donnie, is a wealthy businessman on the eve of his wedding. In drops Donnie to rekindle his relationship with his son & make up for his bad parenting, comedy & mayhem ensue.

Overall That's My Boy is a minor improvement from previous offering Jack & Jill. The story itself is decent & has a mixture of good comedy situations, some taken out the pages from the likes of Couples Retreat & Wedding Crashers. The opening sequence was quite frankly seat squirmingly hilarious, and in places there were some genuine funny bits, but mixed in with some tumbleweed gags & inappropriate, sleazy vulgarity that just soured the whole thing in places. While some Sandler films do touch on bad taste content for it's humor, here it is done excessively & totally out of character for a Sandler film. And recalling an interview, it was Andy Samberg who helped persuade Sandler to make this, as it was up in the air at the time.

Adam Sandler returns to the screen as Donnie Berger who was famous as a child for having sex with his teacher (Eva Amurri Martino). While in prison she gave birth to their son Han Solo Berger, who left home at 18 and changed his name to Todd Peterson (Andy Samberg). Upon seeing a wedding announcement in the paper, Donnie crashes the bride's home. His son, embarrassed by his foul mouthed, rude, uncouth father introduces him as an old friend. Donnie is immediately recognized as his infamous self which allows the family to tolerate his vulgar ways. Donnie also needs $43,000 to avoid going to IRS prison, but this major plot point becomes secondary once the antic start. Not Sandler's best work, but certainly not his worst.

Unlike "Jack and Jill" I was able to sit through this entire film. In spite of the excessive bad language and low brow humor, the film did have some appeal to it.

Parental Guide: Excessive F-bombs, sex talk, brief nudity and sex.

Over the years I have had to keep some terrible secrets, but none has weighed more on me than this. I am an Adam Sandler fan. I find his base comedy is actually pretty funny and he is the perfect antidote after a hard week's work. However, even I have failed to enjoy many of his newer films; his slobbish persona appears to have taken over his writing too. Therefore, when I started to watch `That's My Boy' I was worried it was going to be more `Zohan' or `Grown Ups', but in fact it is getting closer to the classic early films he made. It appears that Sandler wants to have fun making films again.

Sandler plays Donny, a man who has cruised through life on the infamy of sleeping with his high school teacher when he was young. With his celebrity wearing off he is down on his luck and estranged from his son. He faces jail unless he can get some money together and it just so happens that his son is getting married and appears to be very rich. `That's My Boy' is essentially a fish out of water comedy as the loutish Donny visits the high society of his son. This is an R rated comedy so it has some very crude humour, but most of it actually hits quite well.

What I have always liked about Sandler produced movies is that no matter how crude, lewd, or rude they are; they always have heart. This is certainly the case here as the relationship between Sandler and Andy Samberg is a great one. The rebuilding of their relationship is the centre of the film and it gives the movie structure. Without the good central comedic performance it would have just been a string of slightly tasteless jokes, as it is, at least there is some reason for them.

in his teens, Donny fathered a son, 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.....

So after the crisis that was Jack and Jill, Sandler comes and gives us one of his most bizarre and bonkers comedies probably ever, and to be fair, it's not too bad.

Plotwise, the film is non-existent, it's just an excuse for some crude humour, dirty language and childish behaviour, and I must admit, I chuckled on several occasions.

Yes it tanked, and yes, the critics hated it, but this isn't Sandler on auto-pilot, this is Sandler basically saying 'look what I can do because i'm the third most bankable star in Hollywood'.

Fair dues to him, he gets great cameos, some wonderful lines from his regular crew, and a twist ending so, so bonkers, it has to be seen to be believed.

Sandler haters will see this, just to have a snipe, but if you are a long term Sandler fan, it's good stuff, totally perfunctory, and a step up from his last film.
