Near the beginning of the movie when Skeeter goes to his sister's house for her daughter Bobbi's birthday, Skeeter mistakes Patrick to be Bobbi, presumably due to the "boyish" sounding name. However when Wendy's best friend Jill shows up and is talking to Skeeter outside of the house, the present she has with her is wrapped in very "boyish" wrapping paper with basketballs and footballs all over it.

This movie is super entertaining. I honestly don't understand why some people don't like it. Adam Sandler and everyone else in this movie were great. Adam Sandler can definitely act in any kind of movie he chooses to, he's a great actor. I recommend everyone who is a fan of comedies and/or children movies to give this a try. I didn't expect this movie to be this good but I was very very surprised! Disney has done it again, they almost never disappoint. Go out and see this movie with the whole family! But, if its out of theaters make sure to rent it when its available because this is a great modern family film the whole family will enjoy!
