That’s My Boy
Directed by: Sean Anders
Running Time: 1 hr 55 mins
Release Date: June 15, 2012
Plot: A man-child (Sandler) who earned teen fame in the 80s for having sex with his teacher tries to win back the love of his estranged son Han Solo (Samberg).
Who’S It For? Though this is an R-rated movie from Sandler, its humor isn’t for human beings much older than the kids who were tickled stupid by last year’s apocalyptic Jack and Jill. Will the 13-year-olds who sneak into That’s My Boy even get 90% of its many references?
Expectations: I was relieved to see that Sandler’s go-to auteur Dennis Duggan wasn’t directing this one, but instead it was Sean Anders, formerly of the surprising Sex Drive. Perhaps he would be able to do something with Sandler »

When Adam Sandler would be playing his own sister in Jack And Jill, people weren't surprised when the movie turned out to be not that good. But the organisers behind the Golden Raspberry Awards, the anti-Oscars where awards are given to the worst films over the last year, decided to go one step further, giving the movie 10 awards making it the only movie to win every trophy. Among the 'prizes' the movie, which sees Sandlers Jill wreck Thanksgiving for her brother Jack (also Sandler), won were 'Worst Movie', 'Worst Director' for Dennis Duggan, 'Worst Supporting Actor' for Al Pacino, and 'Worst Actor' and 'Worst Actress' for Sandler (He also won 'Worst Screen Couple' for either himself, Katie Holmes, or Pacino). It also received an award for 'Worst Remake/Ripoff' since it is based on Ed Wood's 1953 cross dressing drama Glen Or Glenda, 'Worst Screen Ensemble', and 'Worst Supporting Actress' »
