    Not nearly as terrible as burped-out Sandler disasters of recent years, there's enough funny stuff here to remind us of his talent. Still, it's not for everyone.

    I did laugh. The movie is so disgusting it is worthy of the Farrelly brothers.

    In matters of personal taste, there is no right or wrong, so if erasing brain cells is your idea of a good time, That's My Boy could be your cup of turpentine.

    This is one of those movies you feel stupider just for having sat through. I think I'm already worse at math.

    Will be construed by the faithful as an embarrassment of riches and by the rest of us as cruel and unusual punishment.

    Even with 87.5 years to go, the 21st century may never see a stupider comedy than That's My Boy.

    Imagine if the director of "The Hangover" never said, "Okay, that's too far." The resulting movie would be very close to this. If you loved that movie and you're willing to further degrade yourself as a human being, this will be the funniest movie, ever. It has just the right amount of funny moments, mixed with a decent storyline and character development to make it great to watch over and over. Expand

    That's My Boy was a box office mess. The film was slammed by critics. So what? I don't see nothing wrong with the movie. As far as those tasteless reviews goes, I'm still a Adam Sandler fan and I think this is one of his better R-rated movies since Funny People. Very raunchy, very entertaining, I wonder if Andy Samberg could join Sandler in Grown-Ups 2. That would be awesome. Expand

    A funny movie, but is very kinky and say many bad words.

    I actually started to think that this might be a funny movie starring Adam Sandler. I did laugh a few times, but by the end my opinion had changed. This is a dumb and brainless raunchy comedy disguised as a father and son bonding movie. Usually Sandler is juvenile, but juvenile as in childish and immature. That's My Boy is juvenile because pretty much every joke is about bodily excrement, nudity or excessively drinking alcohol. Every now and again Vanilla Ice turns up and makes you laugh a bit. The keywords in that sentence were "a bit". No moments made me laugh very loudly and when I did smirk it was a joke completely unconnected to the rest of story which is in the movie just to attract the easily satisfied. However it must be pretty hard to attempt to connect a joke to the story when the story almost does not exist. Not Sandlers worst (definitely Samberg's worst) but utterly pointless and really quite boring. Expand

    Another unfunny comedy by Happy Madison and Adam Sandler proves to be another Sandler film with dying and repetitive humor the bores in more ways than just one. Expand

    I started watching this movie because I like Adam Sandler. I quickly stopped it after stupid, inappropriate scenes. Why in the world does anyone have to make movies like this where a teacher is having sexual encounters with very young people. Is this not illegal? No wonder our world is the way it is. Expand
