Another Sandler Classic!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Big Daddy [DVD]  (DVD)
Following The Waterboy, Adam Sandler became my favourite actor. Could he deliver another smash comedy? I hoped so. I was right. I actually saw the VHS version, but I couldn't see that to review anywhere on the site, so I just reviewed the DVD instead. This is a classic movie, in which Sandler plays his familiar role of a deranged man with a very bad temper, yet extremly likeable all the same. How does he do it? Through sheer comic brilliance. This movie sees him with a lack of responibilty - after getting $200, 000 compensation when a taxi drove over his foot, he more or less gave up work. He now work's just one day a week at a toll both. His girlfriend goes away for a week, and threatens to leave him if he dosen't show some responsibilty. So, when his just-engaged flatmate goes away on a business trip, and a kid from his flatmates one night stand many years ago with a Hooters girl in Canada (Before he met his fiancee, if your wondering), hee rashly decides the kid will be a way of showing he has responsibilty. Sandler quickly falls in love with the kid, and there's thousands of hilarious moments along the way - from Sandler throwing sticks in front of rollerbladers in Central Park leading to the kid throwing a stick out in front a rollerblading kid in shown and tell, to Sandler and his kid smashing tins in a shop to get a 50% discount. You simply must see this movie. I'm not sure which is better; this or Waterboy. But it is on a par with Waterboy, and is better than the Wedding Singer. Unmissable.
