"That's My Boy" does not deserve lingering hate from Jack and Jill
9 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the funniest movie Sandler has done in a long time, simple as that. I get that people were PO'd about Jack and Jill, and I'm no fanboy of Adam Sandler.. it was incredibly bad. The ratings and reviews of this movie seem to me like lingering hate from that, or from people that gave up on him long ago. Maybe I'm wrong, either way I doubt that anyone who liked his earlier stuff or Grandmas Boy, Hall Pass, The Hangover, Horrible Bosses etc.. wont' like this.

The cast varied greatly from many well known actors and actresses to current top stars and new faces, they all played their parts really well.

Adam Sandler has redeemed himself, That's My Boy is hilarious.
