Sonny Koufax is 32 years old. He's a law school graduate. He's got a nice apartment in Manhattan. There's just one problem. He does nothing, except sit on his butt and live off an investment that was the result of a meager lawsuit he won a year ago. But after his fed up girlfriend leaves him, he comes up with the ingenious idea to adopt a five year old boy to showcase his newfound maturity. But things don't go as planned, and Sonny finds himself the unlikely foster father that will change his perspective on just looking out for himself. Written by
Cole Sprouse and Dylan Sprouse both lost baby teeth during production and had to be fitted with temporary replacements. Dylan Sprouse's tooth fell out in the middle of a take. Near the end of the movie, just after entering Hooters for his birthday, Sonny makes a reference to Julian about dealing with a missing tooth (at around 1h 25 mins) while holding Julian, "Hey, You! Still missin' that tooth?"). See more »

This is the 1st movie of Sandlers downfall, After this he hasnt made a very FUNNY movie in such. Although i've heard Punch Drunk Love is a master piece
so i cant say much on that cause i havent seen it. But this movie is very basic & not very funny at all, A lot of hollywood comedians go through this same pattern,
he need to make one of his older style movies e.g. Airheads, bulletproof or happy gilmore. Imagine if he makes a movie like
Happy Gilmore now, that'll be huge, because he's a lot more famous now
then he was back then. Although i have to say GOING OVERBOARD was totally pathetic. Sandler is a funny guy but the directors r making him do more family movies for some reason. Look at Mr deeds very much like big daddy, not VERY funny. I'm not very sure if i'm making any sense now
