    Clearly Julian McGrath was right; "Most critics are cynical **** Good job at proving his point correctly, critics. To the point now: Big Daddy is a charming, comedic movie. This has to be one of Adam Sandler's more proper movies as opposed to the terrible Grown Ups series and the mind-numbing Bedtime Stories. For a start, Big Daddy is funny. It also has an actual story unlike the Sandler is dishing out nowadays...

    This is definitely a movie I would come back and watch again and again.

    This was pretty much Adam Sandler at his best. Funny and sweet. Even though it is pretty raunchy at times, it seemed like a good family movie. Sit back and relax, and you will laugh throughout.

    My favorite Adam Sandler movie. It`s funny but I think it`s more than just a comedy movie. You don`t have to like Adam Sandler to watch this one. It has so many interesting characters.

    This was pretty much Adam Sandler at his best. Funny and sweet. Even though it is pretty stupid at times. the ending is flat out hilarious. Adam Sandler's best film.

    Sander has turned mediocrity into the triumph of the smug.
  2. Nasty to women, cruel to old people and tosses in a cardboard gay couple for gratuitous laughs. It's also got one of those annoying soundtracks that lays rock music right over the dialogue -- as if it wanted to distract us from it.
  3. Though the cast is talented, the script is a mess. It's essentially a collision of missed opportunities.
