Watch That's My Boy
- 1 hr 56 min
In the comedy film That's My Boy, a n'er-do-well father tries to reunite with his estranged son. The film opened in 2012 to poor box-office performance, placing fourth in its opening weekend behind the third film in the animated Madagascar series. The film follows the exploits of man who fathered a child with one of his high school teachers when he was a teenager. The teacher went to prison, and the father made some money by exploiting the controversy. Years later, he's poor and looking for a new scam. He's offered a deal by a media company if he can find and reunite with his estranged son. But the kid is doing well now and doesn't want anything to do with his loser father. Hijinks ensue. The film was a raunchy outing for Adam Sandler, who plays the immature father, and Andy Samberg, who plays the incredulous son. It was a critical and financial disappointment, losing money on its not-so-modest budget and earning poor reviews from both professional critics and viewers. It was criticized for its homophobia, misogyny, and irreverent treatment of serious issues. It won multiple awards for the distinction of being one of the worst movies of the year.
