That’s My Boy: Like Father, Like Son

<i>That’s My Boy</i>: Like Father, Like Son

Adam Sandler's latest film That's My Boy centers around Donny Berger, whose illicit after-school affair with his totally hot teacher lands his paramour in prison and leaves Donny with their baby. Of course, because Adam Sandler is incapable of playing a not-terrible parent in everything (except for the pretty forgettable film Spanglish), his son "Han Solo" moves out as soon as he turns 18 (at which point he's grown up to look like Andy Samberg), changes his name to Todd and becomes a big shot in the financial world. And because Todd had to deal with 18 whole years of what we in the real world refer to as "child neglect and endangerment" (Todd develops diabetes after ballooning up from a diet of lollipops and cake and has to drive his drunk Dad home from nightly benders before he reaches fifth grade), he's developed an anxiety disorder and major attachment issues. He's also totally ditched dear old Dad and keeps his real identity a secret from everyone, including his fiancée Jamie (Leighton Meester).
