Matt Brown movie reviews "That's My Boy" MATT BROWN MOVIE CRITIC Greetings cinemaniacs, I saw That's My Boy. It stars Adam Sandler and Andy Samberg. The premise is that Sandler was a terrible father but needs to reunite with his son for a particular reason. I went in with low expectations and was pleasantly surprised.
It has been a while since I was really interested in an Adam Sandler film; he has mostly stuck with the PG-13 family friendly comedies. That's My Boy had that magical 'R' rating though; I just prefer 'R' comedies. PG-13 comedies can be good but its much harder it seems. This movie may offend some people's sensibilities but I thought it was hilarious. The plot won't blow your mind but it was not too bad. The jokes started out a little weak for me but really picked up as it went on.
Sandler was a character that scared me in the trailers, I just imagined the voice he was doing getting annoying over time. It never really got to me though. His character was pretty good I thought. Samberg mostly stuck with his awkward comedy he does so well. There was a great supporting cast and some surprise stars as well. Of course, there were quite a few SNL alumni there as, such as: Will Forte, Rachel Dratch, and Colin Quinn.
I think that That's My Boy was one of the better comedies of this year. The only one I could say is better is 21 Jump Street. Unfortunately it is not doing too well in the theaters, which is unfortunate because I would like more Sandler 'R' comedies. I think this is from the low reviews it is getting; the majority of critics are quite hard to please with dirty comedies. I think that if you are looking for a laugh and can not wait until Ted comes out That's My Boy is well worth a $5 or matinee price movie trip.
There is a big week coming up with Brave, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and Seeking a Friend for the End of the World; I'm going to try and see all 3. I am still waiting on Moonrise Kingdom as well. See you next week movie fans!. firstname.lastname@example.org or follow us on Twitter @LCSEntertainmnt POSTED 06/21/2012 13:24
