Bottom Line: The good news here is that it never reaches the truly awful, laugh-free territory of 2011’s JACK AND JILL (my least favorite movie of the last five years).  This one, like many Sandler comedy efforts, works in fits-and-starts: raunchy one minute, hilarious the next, disjointed here, mildly amusing there…  Sandler, admittedly, is less annoying than he probably should be – but it’s hard to fully embrace the rest of the hit-or-miss antics.  If you’re a fan of his work this will probably hit the mark – if not, you’ll find no joy in THAT’S MY BOY.

Starring: Adam Sandler, Andy Samberg, Leighton Meester and Vanilla Ice
Directed by: Sean Anders (SEX DRIVE)
Rated: R
Running time: 114 minutes
Story: While still in his teens, Donny fathered a son, Todd, and raised him as a single parent up until Todd's 18th birthday. Now, after not seeing each other for years, Todd’s world comes crashing down on the eve of his wedding when an uninvited Donny suddenly shows up. Trying desperately to reconnect with his son, Donny is now forced to deal with the repercussions of his bad parenting skills. (Sony Pictures)
