Big Daddy Movie Review
Big Daddy is Adam Sandler's latest movie as he continues to try to make achievements over his previous movies, Happy Gilmore, Billy Madison, and The Waterboy. He doesn't surpass any of his previous efforts with Big Daddy but still provides some good comedy for the average crowd.
Big Daddy is filled with a lot of potty jokes, some sex jokes, and gay jokes, but everything is pretty tame compared to his other pictures, and definitely to the other comedy out at theaters, American Pie. Realistically, this movie could be watched and liked by the whole family, big or small, but, of course, parents are usually opposed to Adam Sandler because he is... Adam Sandler.
Adam Sandler isn't as annoying as he is in his other films, but he comes close. His prime target is his best friend's girlfriend, who can't stand him. But the prime comedy is based around his little friend, the cute Julian, played by twins Cole and Dylan Sprouse. Sandler watches him for a couple weeks and teaches the boy all his bad habits.
The acting is fairly good in the film and the plot can't be much more than it is. The only real downside was the ending, which, unfortunately, was a corny court battles where Sonny (Sandler) testifies to how much he loves the little kid. There could have been better ways to end off this movie.
I gave The Waterboy three stars, as did I Big Daddy, but The Waterboy is definitely a better, funnier movie. Still, Big Daddy is a fun movie and definitely worth seeing.
