Synopsis


Big Daddy
Prospective parents everywhere, meet the world's least likely paternal role model: Adam Sandler! In Big Daddy, Sandler plays 30-year-old bachelor Sonny Koufax, a carefree slob who has never much taken to adult responsibilities; he works one day a week as a tollbooth collector, and spends the remainder of his time living off of a $200,000 reward he collected from an auto accident. All told, the life suits him just fine. However, as his old buddies start getting married and drifting away, Sonny realizes that if he doesn't do something soon, he could end up all alone for the rest of his life. When his most recent girlfriend, Vanessa (Kristy Swanson), indicates that she needs some time off because she's sick of being with a man who can't act like a grown-up, he decides that it's time to take drastic action to win her back. Conveniently enough, a little boy named Julian (Cole Sprouse and Dylan Sprouse) turns up on his doorstep, claiming that he's the biological son of Sonny's roommate and friend from law school, Kevin (Jon Stewart). The kid tells Sonny that he's from Buffalo, New York; Kevin has never been to Buffalo, New York, but no matter - Sonny foresees, in Julian, an opportunity to convince Vanessa that he can face adult responsibilities. He thus takes charge of the little boy over a long Columbus Day weekend, pretending to be Kevin. However, the plan doesn't work as expected, and the authorities hone in on a discovery of Sonny's real identity. Meanwhile, Sonny finds himself genuinely drawn to the tyke. Also supporting Sandler in Big Daddy are Joey Lauren Adams, Josh Mostel and Rob Schneider. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    A great comedy but not for the whole family.Unless you want you kid to learn some off color phrases and word's. This was a great character for Adam Sandler to play because he put so much of a human element into it that he remained funny but put a moral message across the screen in a way that he has yet to repeat in his movies. I will watch this movie again.

    This movie might be my favorite Adam Sandler movie. It has a little bit of everything - funny, lunacy, but also really serious and tender moments. I never get tired of this movie and I got it on Bluray at a great price in Best Buy. Can't beat that.

    Although this movie has a fairly good ending, the process leading up to it is not good at all. I can't believe anyone would 'teach' a five-year-old kid those things! It will be a long time before I watch it again.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Sandler is Sandler. This film is a mixture of comedy, morbid and interacting feelings to make us enjoy the cinema that he offers us. A mandatory movie to watch in his acting career.

    Worthwhile Comedy

    While not his best film, Adam Sandler still works his magic well enough in 'Big Daddy' to make it worthwhile. Widescreen and full-screen viewing options, with some sparse extras.

    Not academy award winning. Not as serious as Punch Drunk Love. Not as silly as Billy Madison. A happy medium. Cute and entertaining.
