Adam Sandler is one of this generations great comedic actors. He is to this generation what Steve Martin was the generation before with his insane, madcap approach to comedy. After over a decade of hit films, he continues to produce some of the best characters as well as films to entertain audiences. His latest film, That’s My Boy is a returns him to his comedic roots that endeared him to the masses. The movie is one of his more raunchy productions that continues to help Sandler reinvent himself.
That’s My Boy is humorous, insanely outrageous manifestation that institutes a high level of raunchiness, vulgarity, and obscenities to breathe into every teenage boys fantasy. It tell the tale of an estranged father who tries to reunite with his son after getting his sexy high school teacher pregnant. The film stars Adam Sandler (Grown Ups), Andy Samburg (Friends With Benefits), James Caan (Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs), Leighton Meester (The Roommate), Milo Ventimilgila (Pathology), and Will Forte (The Watch).
That’s My Boy is a haphazard, mind-numbing debauchery is uses an insanely ridiculous approach to a truly heartwarming tale. It’s a good comedy that will take a romp through the 80’s and 90’s and will give movie goers a since of nostalgia as it implements a number of memorable aspects from those decades into the story. New Kids On the Block,
What starts off as a sick twisted perspective on every teenage boys fantasy morphs into a sincere tale about family, life, and responsibility. Happy Madison studios does a great job at embedded the message of the film into the maddening comedic tomfoolery that really drives the film. That’s My Boy is hilarious at times, offensive at others, even disgusting to a degree, but it never strays from its sincere message about the importance of family. That is what makes this one of Sandler better films.
Much of the humor in That’s My Boy is juvenile and offensive. It’s truly an acquired taste brand of humor. Sandler lets loose the reigns as he tries to return to the form of his old films. That’s My Boy is closer to his earlier films like The Waterboy and Happy Gilmore. He goes all in and it pays off.
Sandler and Samburg make a good comedic tandem. They play off of one another extremely well each is at his comedic best. This film bolsters some of the trademark “Sandler” dialogue as well as many of the actors that grace Sandler’s films. Happy Madison veterans Nick Swarson, Blake Clarke, and Dennis Dugan each makes their regular appearance in a Sandler film. There are also a number of appearances by former 80’s and 90’s stars which truly enhances the story. Vanilla Ice, Todd Bridges, and Dan Patrick all make an appearance in the film.
It is one of Adam Sandler’s better films that returns the comedian to his more juvenile ways that helped him to be endeared to movie lovers. Sandler is out of control and outrageous. His fans should love every min. This is not the family friendly venue that he has strayed away to in recent years. That’s My Boy is closer to the Saturday Night Live Adam Sandler. Raunchy, vulgar, and funny as ever.
