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
The "Scuba Steve" action figure in this movie is a fictional doll made up by Adam Sandler. "Scuba Steve" is based on a doll that Adam Sandler owned when he was a child, called Diver Dan. Diver Dan can be seen briefly in the intro scenes of another Dennis Dugan film, Problem Child (1990). See more »

[after finding out he has to be taken from Sonny by the social services]
You don't want me here anymore?
[close to tears]
No, that's not it, pal. You just have to go away for awhile.
How long am I going away for?
[trying not to cry]
I don't want to lie to you. I don't think we'll be seeing each other anymore. I screwed up, I'm so sorry. Come here, put your coat on. This is not your fault, okay? I'm the idiot
I don't wanna go!
I know you don't, but you have to. You'll be okay, alright?

I watched this film a lot when I was younger, I laughed my arse off. Then I lost the video, and I discovered it when it fell on my head about a week ago. It hurt, but the film was worth it. I laughed again, I nearly cried when Julian got took away, and it brought back a lot of memories. I don't normally like Adam Sandler, but this is one of my favourite films. Its underrated, mostly by adults, as soon as I put it on, my Nana took one look at Adam Sandler and went home. She said he "Over-acted and wasn't funny." I know a lot of other people who think this movie is a big pile of crap, but they have no sense of humour. I would recommend this to anyone who likes to laugh..
