By far the grossest and just plain WRONG! comedy so far this year. Adam Sandler and Samberg's pairing was perfect. While the acting was iffy and story was childish. It appeals to most audiences and is still a funny romp well worth the price of admission
Story: (3.5/5) - Now for one thing next to understand. Sandler taking the role of the self-obsessed and alcoholic Donny Berger gets his teacher pregnant when his just a teenager 13 or 14 years old. Berger rose to instant stardom in the 80s and was loved by many particularly because he was living every young boys fantasy of having sex with there incredibly hot teacher. This of course would never happen in real life (i would think). Well the kid ..Donny names Hon-Solo ..but has changed his name to Todd Peterson (Samberg). The story picks up round 30 years later when Donny is being pursued by the IRS and is headed to jail if he does not come up with $43,000. - This story is very...different and interesting. It would be nice for just a quick second if this was plausible..but its nice to dream for a change. Acting (3/5) No actor really stood out here than the rest. Samberg was pretty funny with the role he was given and Sandler well..he is Sandler..his vocabulary in this film only consist..of Sex...Booze..and the F-bomb. The whole time he holds this annoying slur in his voice and you can barley understand him, but Sandler gets a pass ..because he can do that..if any other actor tried to accomplish that..there career would be where Sandler is..nowhere. The addition also to Vanilla Ice was well creative on the writers part..and although his career has gone nowhere..he still was funny in this film. Directing (3/5) - While ditching longtime pal Dennis Dugan ..its a major improvement over Jack And Jill.
Overall: (3.5/5) - By far the grossest and just plain WRONG! comedy so far this year. Adam Sandler and Samberg's pairing was perfect. While the acting was iffy and story was childish. It appeals to most audiences and is still a funny romp well worth the price of admission. Audience should find the enjoyment in this film..as i did. There are many instances where the gags get taken to an extreme and the conclusion? is far from normal. In fact you might cringe on the sight. With the material given to the actors ... i suppose the actors and producers get some leeway. But i also want to give credit for actually earning its R rating and not settling for one. I hate when..'Should-Be' PG13 films add an extra Fbomb then they get there R. That's My Boy is not a family fun film..by any-means so you need to leave the young-ones at home. So if my respect goes down a little bit for finding the heart and enjoyment this movie wanted the audience to find..then so be it. The film though some minor complaints. Ran almost 2hours!. I could not believe that?. For a Sandler film that is surprise. So this film is not a classic "Hangover" type film. Nor will it ever achieve that status or rank of approval from film-goers. Good comedies are truly hard to come by and this R rated one..should do the trick.
Thanks For Stoppin Buy ...
