Quick Review: That's My Boy

That's My Boy is the new Adam Sandler comedy. Underage Donny Burger gets involved with his hot new teacher(Eva Amurri Martino).  They get found out, she goes to jail and has a kid, who Donny get's custody of and subsequently messes up. Cut to present day, washed-up Donny(Adam Sandler) needs money and must reunite with his son Todd(Andy Samberg), so he doesn't go to jail for not paying taxes. Todd is getting married and of course wants nothing to do with him.

This is actually a really good metaphor for 90's Sandler gross-out movies. They're washed up and everyone tries to forget them, but they have this nostalgia and humor that's kind of endearing that everyone secretly wants to bring back.  I wasn't expecting much from this but I thought it was pretty funny in a gross-out crude humor kind of way.  It's not the best movie you could see, but it's not completely awful is what I'm saying. You can do a lot worse for a Sandler comedy.

$$$-It's not bad. If you like Sandler movies and gross-out humor, there's a lot to laugh at.
