4.0 out of 5 stars Can't Help Laughing..., 1 Dec. 2002
By 
This review is from: Big Daddy [DVD] [1999] (DVD)
Another predictable storyline, Another box of laughter. Adam Sandler plays Sonny Koufax and fails to disappoint his large quantity of fans who admire his cocky humour. Unlike some of his other films however; 'Big Daddy' is actually appealing to a larger audience and impresses all who are seeking for an hour and a half of non-stop hilarious entertainment.
I am not going to spoil the storyline but what I can say is that like the majority of Adam Sandler comedy films, they are so predictable. Some may say that this is no sort of criticism and that the humour in the film is what counts but it does begin to get tiresome when you know how the film will turn out half an hour into the production.
Moaning aside, 'Big Daddy' has it's fair share of plot twists, some of which funny and some of which to continue the storyline. The movies also has typical Adam Sandler humour throughout- so if you don't like the jokes he cracks in the majority of his other classic films then I strongly recommend you give this one a miss because to put it frankly- 'Big Daddy' is full of them.
There are some amazingly funny moments thanks to the great combined performences of Adam Sandler and the Sprouse brothers who played the little boy called Julian who Sonny adopted in order to impress a girlfriend, who left him anyway!
As well as some class humour acts in a lot of the scenes, the film has it's touching parts that could bring a tear to someone's eyes and although at times you could guess it, makes you want to continue following the storyline in an attempt not to jump ahead predicting the ending.
An other mention has to go to good ol' Steve Buscemi, who has a minor yet wildly laughable part in what seems to be now all of Adam Sandler movies. He always seems to deliver one of the film's best one-liners and I simply can't help laughing whenever he is on the screen!
Like all of his films, Adam Sandler has taken his role as Sonny Koufax aboard very well hence why his part has been acted out well giving the film the needed sense of quality.
For Adam Sandler devotees or anyone who is a fan of the entire comedy genre, 'Big Daddy' is very worth of a place in your DVD collection- no need to think about what is going on, all you have to do is sit back and be prepared to be entertained.
85/100
