It plays out so much like every other Sandler comedy, with his old friends making forced cameos on top of the massive amounts of recycled gags from the nineties. That’s My Boy goes beyond recent bullshit attempts like Jack and Jill, but barely. Its juvenile humor is rehashed from Sandler’s “better” days, which I’m starting to think never really existed. Jack and Jill was proof that Sandler only cares about the money and That’s My Boy is a simple reminder that Sandler can get anything green-lit by the studios, even if it’s moronic, bloated and 15 years too late."
