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

On television broadcasts, when Julian wets his bed and Sonny sees it, Sonny's line of "That's a shit-load of piss" was changed to: "What is that, Lake Michigan?" See more »
Sandler stars as a crude N.Y.C. slacker who's too lazy to do anything with his life even though he's a law school graduate and his father is a prominent Florida attorney. A kid shows up at his doorstep one day and he adopts him as a desperate ploy to win back his demanding girlfriend, that is until both of them unexpectedly develop a mutual bond. Undeniably silly, but very funny comedy is very likely to offend some with its immature, atypical parenting style, but it's well-cast and overflowing with Sandler-esque gags. Buscemi and Schneider have amusing supporting roles as a philosophical bum and a witless delivery man, and the film's climax is hilarious. **½
