Stop your bitching people. Admit it people, it was good. (by pseudodeep)
I was highly suprised to see such negative things about this movie. To think, that people can have so much hatred for a MOVIE! get over it people.Personally, I loved this movie. I liked it better than Waterboy and Happy Gilmore hell, I haven't even seen HG . This was an excellent movie, and it was funny. I don't really like Sandler's usual immature frat-boy humor, but in this movie, it was too sweet. Julian, the little boy, was adorable, how can you not love his little lisp?ANd oh my god, they cussed a few times. So what? Yeah, there was sexual remarks, big deal. This is almost <more>
2000, get used to it.The ending was brutally sad, he couldn't keep the kid. But if he did it would be unrealistic. But Kevin Gerrity played by the super-yummy Jon Stewart ;P did get his son back, and that was expected.9/10By the way, who was it who said Sonny was homeless? I oughta smack you for that. Idiot. If your going to make us suffer through your criticism, at least watch the movie.
When I first saw Big Daddy I figured a hopefully better than Waterboy movie. I got what I wished for. This movie is hilarious. Adam Sandler is great and Cole Sprouse and Dylan Sprouse do good as well. Jon Stewart and Rob Schneider are good too. The movie is laugh out loud funny. Adam Sandler is a new "daddy" and gets to take care of a boy brought to his doorstep. Like 3 men and a little lady except with an immature guy and a little boy.Overall this movie is excellent. I like Adam sandler better acting like a normal person like in this instead of a "different" person like <more>
in The Waterboy and Little Nicky. Rating 10 out of 10.
Heartfelt charm, hysterical comedy, and a positive message makes for an adorable and hilarious slapstick comedy (by trooper5783)
I like Adam Sandler a lot, but recently with Blended and The Cobbler, he's starting to lose his goofy touch what made his humor funny in the first place. I loved the most recent movie he's done called Pixels in 3D, but he truly shined back in the day. One of his best movies is Big Daddy, which is a very funny and surprisingly charming comedy that shows that Adam Sandler can still try his best at being hilarious. The movie has a strength of having pee and throw up jokes, innuendoes and slapstick, but the crudeness and simplicity of the comedy will make you laugh out loud. The movie is <more>
very sweet, without being too corny to be considered cinematic cheese. A lot of the unimportant characters are actually the funniest and most interesting of the bunch. Julian is just too damn funny here, he has a ton of antics that are a few of the highlights of the movie. Overall, Big Daddy is a hilarious and heartfelt gem that should be better received.
Hilarious, but kind of crude movie (by Catherine_Grace_Zeh)
In my opinion, BIG DADDY is a hilarious, but kind of crude movie. If you ask me, Sonny Adam Sandler was a hilarious guy, but he should have shown Sid Geoffrey Horne a little more respect. I thought Corrine Leslie Mann and Vanessa Kristy Swanson were very snobby. This was because they didn't treat Sonny with a whole lot of respect most of the time. In addition, I thought that Julian Cole and Dylan Sprouse was a really cute kid. The only things about BIG DADDY that grossed me out were the messes that Julian made, especially when he threw up after bouncing around a little bit while <more>
he had "The Kangaroo Song" on. To me, Layla Joey Lauren Adams was a really nice, smart, and pretty woman. In conclusion, I recommend this smash hit to all you Adam Sandler fans who haven't seen it. When you see it, prepare for lots of laughs.
A boy in a man's body must begin to take responsibility (by david-sarkies)
Well, this is another Adam Sandler movie in the vain of Happy Gilmore and the Waterboy. In this one he is a lawyer who chose to spend his post college life bumming around rather than get a job. In essence he is a child in an adult's body. The reviews all say that he dropped out of Law School, but he did not. He finished Law School, and the movie implies that he was quite good, but he simply doesn't want to work. The fact that he managed to get $20 000 off of a cabbie who ran over his foot is more evidence that he is actually quite a good lawyer.Everything is going okay, okay in the <more>
sense that his girlfriend is upset that he isn't taking any responsibility for his life and has gone away for a while. She then ends up dumping him for a much older man, who Sandler has the pleasure of paying out. One day though a kid lands up on his doorstep which is being given to his flat mate, who is in China. Sandler at first decides that he will use the kid to prove to his girlfriend that he is capable of being a responsible adult, but in the end decides that he likes having a kid.Triple J hated the movie, having a go at the moral point that we must one day grow up and take responsibility. I might appreciate the radio station for the music, but their attitude that responsibility sucks and that we should live life in a hedonistic and self-centered way is basically immature. I personally think the theme in the movie is quite relevant when aimed at a culture of slackers and dole bludgers that sleep in til noon and live a life of getting wasted. I remember a friend who had a kid, and it so much of a hassle that he ended up splitting up with his girlfriend. Even though he wanted the kid, I highly doubt that he would be able to effectively look after it, especially since he spent a large amount of his day stoned on marijuana.Sandler takes the attitude of lets give the kid a choice and don't ram rules down his throat. He lets the kid pick his name Frankenstein and lets the kid choose what to wear. He then becomes paranoid that kids at the school will introduce him to drugs so he spends time with them trying to find out is they actually know anything about drugs which they do not .The main theme of this movie is responsibility. Here Sandler chooses responsibility, but in the end he lands up in trouble because of the way he went about it. In our eyes he is a far better father than many that really exist, but in the eyes of the state he is a liar and a cheat, and no matter how many lawyers he has behind him, there is no way that he can throw that off of him. In the end, he realises that he must take responsibility for his lives and the lives of those around him if he is going to be taken seriously.
OK I'm a HUGE Adam Sandler fan and this movie is truly one of his bests!!!!!!!!It's about a lazy 30 something year old, Sonny Koufax who's girlfriend walks out on him so to show him he's mature enough to go to the next level of their relationship he adopt's a kid, Juliane, and his plan backfires when he figures out his girlfriend has moved on!OOPS!!!So Sonny has to keep Juliane but he let's Juliane do whatever Juliane wants to do.NOT GOOD!!!!!!!!!He starts calling himself Frankenstein, he Starts peeing wherever he wants, and he stops taking <more>
baths!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!EEEEEEEEEEEEWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!So Sonny has to teach Julianne to act like a normal kid and there's something I didn't mention so you would have to go out and rent this movie!!!!Seriously go rent it or go out and even buy it!!!You won't be sorry!You'll laugh your butt off!!!!It's so funny!!!
Some movies are made for us to ponder questions of morality and ethics. Some are made for us to question reality. Some are made for us to find ourselves.This movie is not one of them.This movie was made for one reason and that is to make us laugh. And it does that very well.Sandler plays an incredibly irresponsible derelict that has no real job or ambition in life. He gets a kid left on is doorstep and he is forced to care for him. The story needn't be described any more than that, we all know what happens. But it is what this movie does to our senses that makes it worth while. In short, <more>
it makes us laugh hysterically. This film is a whirlwind of jokes and hilarity and when it stops to let you catch your breath it still entertains you. I admire films like this. They aren't meant to be Instinct or The Siege two films that I absolutely love but all it aspires to do is entertain you; take you away from life for 90 minutes. And let's face it. Sitting in a cool theater with a bag of M&M's, a cold Coke and a funny movie is a perfect way to spend a lazy summer afternoon.This is a great movie and it will make you laugh. That's all it is, nothing more, nothing less. And we should be thankful for that.
Adam Sandler The Waterboy, The Wedding Singer has pulled off another hit with Big Daddy. Sandler stars as a lazy law-school graduate who won't take the bar exam. One day when his roommate goes on a business trip to China a child arrives at the day with a note claiming to be his roommate's son. Sandler takes the kid for a day and after having a good time decides to keep him to impress his girlfriend who doesn't think he's trying to grow up. His girlfriend dumps him and he's stuck with the kid. Not surprisingly Sandler isn't a good father, but soon he bonds with the <more>
kid and he learns how to be a good father. This might sound like a cheesy feel-good film, but with Sandler the humor is kind of low-brow, but often hilarious. The film does also offer a few touching scenes between Sandler and the kid. Sandler's performance was very funny, but reminded me a little of Jim Carrey's performance in Liar Liar. Liar Liar if you have seen it was a regular Carrey comedy, but offered a couple of serious scenes which Carrey pulled off well. Carrey then went on to do The Truman Show and win a Golden Globe. Sandler also has a couple of serious scenes which he nails well. I'm not suggesting that Sandler is going to become a great actor like Carrey seems headed for but he may have the skill to do it if he wants. Leslie Mann George of the Jungle, The Cable Guy and Joey Lauren Adams Chasing Amy, A Cool Dry Place are both good as sisters. Jon Stewart The Faculty, Playing by Heart is solid as Sandler's roommate. Twins Cole and Dylan Sprouse are convincing as the kid. Finally, two favorites of mine have very funny supporting roles. Steve Buscemi Reservoir Dogs, Armageddon is good as a homeless friend of Sandler's. And Rob Schneider Judge Dredd, Knock Off is hilarious as an immigrant delivery man who is good friends with Sandler. Highly Recommended.
This was the first Adam Sandler movie I saw. I must say that I was impressed. Sandler plays Sonny who is just a cheap, low-life guy who works at a tollbooth and he has family issues. Then one day, a 5-year-old kid was dumped on his doorstep. He decides to take care of the kid even when there is legal trouble involving him and the kid. I thought that Dennis Dugan did a good job as directing. The chemistry between the actors was OK, but it works. There were fine performances by the Sprouse twins, Rob Schneider, and Jon Stewart. I also liked the music of this film. I enjoyed listening to the two <more>
versions of "Sweet Child O' Mine" by Sheryl Crow and Guns'N'Roses. Last of all, the film was pretty funny. This is a nice fit for your movie collection! I rate this movie a 8/10.
