Henry Roth is a man afraid of commitment up until he meets the beautiful Lucy. They hit it off and Henry think he's finally found the girl of his dreams, until he discovers she has short-term memory loss and forgets him the very next day.
Billy Madison is a 27 year-old man whose father Brian is the head of a major hotel chain. Even though he is groomed to replace his father who is about to retire, Billy is extremely immature and unmotivated in life. When Brian considers making Eric Gordon (whom Billy despises) his new replacement, Billy decides to prove to his father that he is capable of taking over. He must repeat grade school all over again (2 weeks for each grade) in order to take over the hotel empire. The further Billy progresses, the more Eric tries to derail Billy.Written by

So Bad I Am Still Contemplating Suicide, Five Years Later
I'm not going to mince words. This movie made me put a gun in my mouth. (No bullets around, luckily.) Adam Sandler is an utterly worthless human being...his body of films have done more damage to the collective level of human intelligence than all the books burned by every fascist regime of the twentieth century. I hate him. Hate hate hate him.
I did not enjoy this movie.
Could someone, somewhere, please explain why they think Sandler is funny? Please? I am totally mystified. It isn't that I am some ivory tower snob, I actually found TOMMY BOY somewhat watchable and even chuckled once or twice at DIRTY WORK (well...maybe once...). But Sandler is just atrociously unfunny in everything he does. I laughed once during this whole movie. _Once_. The scene where he pulls up to school and Billy Squier is on his stereo. That's it. One three-second chuckle does not even begin to atone for the concentrated, merciless stupidity of the rest of this movie.
If you said this movie was hilarious, I probably think you are an idiot.
