- Can't get enough stupid tattoos
The world of movies wouldn’t miss much if Adam Sandler retired. His latest venture, That’s My Boy, a Happy Madison production directed by Sean Anders, is a comedy of the lowest common denominator. Donny Berger (Sandler), a junior high student, is essentially molested by his sex-kitten teacher and gets her pregnant—their lovechild, Hans Solo (Andy Samberg), a.k.a. Todd, has, understandably, disowned his father. Of course, Donny tries to win Todd over as he prepares to get married. The only funny moments have more to do with the occasional well-timed delivery, usually on Samberg’s or Will Forte’s (Todd’s best man) part, than with the content of the bulk of the jokes. Overwhelmingly, it’s hard to watch—you expect base humour with Sandler, but this lacks creativity and relies too much on the idea that hard-ons and horny grandmas make any situation funny.
