New red band trailer for That's My Boy with Sandler and Samberg is a riot

Jun. 6, 2012by: Paul Shirey

I can't even believe I'm saying this, but with the trailers I've seen thus far, including this new red-band one for Adam Sandler and Andy Samberg's THAT'S MY BOY, I'm actually looking forward to this movie.

Yes, you heard me right.  Not since BILLY MADISON have I uttered those words, but I simply can't deny the fact that the adolescent gags and constant F-bombs that are replete in the promos for the film, THAT'S MY BOY is shaping up to maybe, possibly, kinda, revive Sandler's clout, if even a smidgeon.

Shots, shots, shots!:

I'm not going to retread over the missteps Sandler has had of late as we are all well-versed.  I am curious if it was a conscious effort by the comedian to "step up his game" in doing this, as well as taking the co-starring role with Will Ferrell in the upcoming THREE MISSISSIPPI. 

Samberg is jumping into the feature film fray after officially leaving SNL, but I don't see his stakes any higher than Sandler's in terms of churning out some quality comedy.  Ultimately, they're both pulling for a win and I'm hoping this one delivers, if for no other reason than for me to laugh my ass off at a good flick starring two guys who can be good when they want to be.

Some guest stars to look forward to include: Vanilla Ice, Will Forte, Rachel Dratch, Milo Ventimiglia, Ciara, Nick Swardson, Susan Sarandon, Todd Bridges, Colin Quinn, Alan Thicke, and many more.

THAT'S MY BOY opens on June 15, 2012.

Eva Amurri Martino (daughter of Susan Sarandon) is inspired casting for this film as the hot teacher...

Extra Tidbit: I can't get that damn "shots, shots, shots" song out of my head after seeing the trailers for That's My Boy. I will start singing it in the middle of the day, at work, in meetings, the bathroom, and when I pick my kid up from daycare. It's like the Mario Bros. theme. Once you hear it, it's there to stay.

I can't believe I would actually want to see this as well, my friends think I'm joking but this had a few solid laughs. I think it's because his immature act for this movie is for adults, and not like his past where it's limited to just 13 year old boys

Saw an advance screening last night...

Better than his last couple of movies, but still disappointing. There were some great Sandler moments here and there, but the gross-out jokes got old pretty quickly. It's definitely a sign of Sandler heading back to his roots, but this is nowhere close to his triumphant return.

Let's be real: triumphant return would suggest that Sandler was ever that good. People like his older films because of nostalgia, except for Happy Gilmore, which is just plain dumb fun - moreso in spite of Sandler than because of him. The supporting cast and cameos (like Carl Weathers and Bob Barker) are mostly what make that film. I think you could only really make an argument for Wedding Singer and Billy Madison, and imo both have aged poorly, particularly the latter.

Hey, it's Adam Sandler doing that "waterboy-voice" again...

I'll pass.

I smiled once. At first I thought it was the trailer and then I realised I was having a stroke.

I would rather cut off my dick than watch this CHEAT of a performer ape about the screen delivering repeat performances of his old, hackneyed jokes...

The 'placeholder' image on that video says it all

Two annoying actors who mug a lot, mugging poorly, in a poorly conceived comedy. Will Forte > Samburgler. And Sandler was never really that good, people: admit it - you like those really early '90s comedies because you grew up on them, there's a reason they were panned during their time by critics even more so than his recent films. I guarantee you in fifteen or twenty years he'll have fans who are our age now waxing nostalgic for 'Click'. Sad but true.

Unpopular Opinion?

I think you can officially transfer this trailer review to the Unpopular Opinion category. The red band makes it look worse than it already did!

I've got to be honest, posts like this make me think some of the news stories on this site are sponsored.
