Comedy
When the best you can say about a movie is, “At least it’s better than Jack and Jill,” there’s a problem. Adam Sandler’s latest, That’s My Boy, does have one or two unexpected laughs—so that’s an uptick—but it’s still the kind of garbage he’s always made, because, apparently, Darwin was wrong about species evolving. This R-rated comedy might be Sandler’s raunchiest. It’s also a very desperate comedy, willing to do anything for a laugh (except for being genuinely amusing). Sandler plays a teenage dad, grown up (but not matured) and reunited with his successful son (Andy Samberg) on the eve of the son’s wedding. Yeah, the law of averages says you’ll be caught off-guard once or twice, but That’s My Boy is still pretty dire stuff.
