Adam Sandler's latest film is the story of Donny, a teenager who was forced to father his son Todd, the product of an inappropriate student-teacher relationship. Now much older, Donny is broke and in desperate need of money to pay back the IRS. Donny's only hope relies in his now wealthy son, Todd, who he hasn't seen for over a decade. That's My Boy is pretty much exactly what you would expect from an Adam Sandler movie, though it's much more vulgar and crude than many of his recent films. The story is a predictable redemption story as Donny learns the error of his ways and eventually becomes a good, if unorthodox father to Todd. This film definitely has it's moments, at times taking things to a surprising extent of tastelessness, yet it never becomes anything more than a decent comedy that's definitely better than his most recent efforts. To be fair, that isn't particularly saying much. If you enjoy this brand of vulgar, tasteless humor than the film has it's moments, but there is definitely better product out there.
Love of all things cinema brought me here.
