Product Description

Sandler/Stewart/Adams ~ Big Daddy

Amazon.ca

Gosh--kids. You gotta love 'em, right? Well, not necessarily-- particularly if you're Adam Sandler. But Big Daddy is about paternal devotion in its own oblique way. Sandler plays Sonny Koufax, a law-school grad who has been milking an accident settlement to cover his living expenses, while he continues to slack his way through life. But when his girlfriend threatens to dump him, he decides to show her he's serious about their relationship and pretends to adopt a little boy (in fact, his roommate's son from a one-night stand several years earlier, who shows up on their doorstep just after the roommate leaves town on a job). But after taking care of the tyke for a couple of days, Sonny finds that it's a little like feeding that stray dog that followed you home: Before you know it, you've grown attached to the little fella--and then what are you going to do? By turns crude and maudlin, Big Daddy has its share of laughs and will certainly entertain fans who like Adam Sandler best when he plays the case of arrested development with a smart-aleck retort for everything. --Marshall Fine

Adam Sandler is always entertaining, but Big Daddy never really piqued my interest; looking back now, I think the previews of this film did it a disservice. Certainly, Big Daddy has its course moments, but it's an excellent comedy that just so happens to have a heart. Some would say this film sets a bad example for kids. First of all, this isn't one of those education films of the 1950s that tells you how to be a good parent. More importantly, though, what you have here is a guy who is more than willing to "grow up" and change his life in order to be a father to a kid he genuinely loves. Plenty of fathers in the world raise their kids to be little gentlemen and ladies, but often it's more about a father not wanting his son or daughter to embarrass him than it is about genuine fatherly love. To me, Big Daddy is - in its own quirky, Sandler-ish way - a tribute to all the fathers out there who genuinely love their children.

As usual, Sandler plays a character who has never really grown up; Sonny Koufax is a law school graduate, but he works in a toll booth one day a week and basically tries to live as if he is still an undergrad. His girlfriend Vanessa (Kristy Swanson) wants a man of means and goals, and he's trying to figure out how to get her back when little Julian (played by Cole and Dylan Sprouse) is literally dropped at his doorstep. It's not even his kid; the biological father is Sonny's roommate who has just left town on business. Sonny tells his newly-engaged buddy that he will handle everything, initially planning just to keep the kid until Social Services opens the next day - but he can't let little Julian be tossed into an orphanage. He doesn't exactly follow Dr.

Adam Sandler is, without question, one of the funniest actors in the world today, and anyone who doesn't agree with this deserves to be taken out and shot. In the mid-late nineties he released a plethora of films that were unrealistically funny. His final film of the nineties was Big Daddy. Read on for my review of this film - one of Sandler's best.
BASIC PLOT:
In this film, Sandler plays the role of a man who is in his thirties, and has done nothing with his life. He works only one day a week - in a toll booth! Through an odd twist of events, he ends up looking after a child, and the two become very close thanks to his unique (but certainly awkward) parenting choices. Unfortunately, he quickly learns there is more to parenting than just fun and games.
FILM OPINIONS:
This is an excellent film, since it's more than "just another Adam Sandler movie." Perhaps this is due to the drama that you don't get in most of his films. It's not an outrageous film (like many of his previous ones), but it's still a good one nonetheless, and more likely than not, you'll be pleased. The film contains a variety of excellent songs - most of which are covers (remakes.)
DVD:
The DVD gives you all the basic features you'd expect - scene selections, trailers for this and other films, commentary, behind-the-scenes footage, etc. And unlike a plethora of DVD movies out there today, this one contains full screen and widescreen on a single disc! I was hoping for deleted scenes too, but I'm not complaining.
OVERALL:
This is one of the best films in Sandler's catalogue. If you want to watch a good comedy film, as only Sandler could do, I strongly suggest seeing this movie.

I think that by this time in Adam Sandler's career, there are two kinds of fans: ones who either hate him, or love him. And to be blunt, his roles in most of his movies are not that great. For instance; playing the title character in "Happy Gilmore", he was a hockey/golf pro. In "The Waterboy" he played a retarted waterboy. And in "Little Nicky" he played the Devil's son. Now, all of these roles are not ones that we can relate to. But yet we still loved those films, and with good reason.
But in "Big Daddy", Sandler plays Sonny Koufax. What makes this role so much better is that there's a sense of love from within. When a young boy (Cole/Dylan Sprouse) is left outside his door, he takes him in and gives him a home. And for anyone who saw "Billy Madison" you see the irony here. Anyway, to make a long story short, it's the most well-rounded character he's every played. It's a movie that anyone can like, even if they don't like Adam Sandler. Grant it, he has the starring role, but he's with a great supporting cast. It includes Joey Lauren Adams, Jon Stewart and Rob Schneider, along with some Sandler-movie regulars. Joey is particularly good here. She provides more seriousness than most of his female co-stars from earlier films.
This movie is definetly a comedy--and it' a good one at that. But it has more than just stupid laughs. It's cute, it's sad, and it's something you shouldn't be able to hate. The movie may be around 3.5 stars, it's better than just three. The only reason it didn't get more is because of the ending. I didn't think much of the ending, but I guess it was fitting. Anyway, Adam Sandler does something in this movie that I hope continues for him; that being playing great roles. So watch this movie, whether you like Adam Sandler or not. It' a great film.
