Adam Sandler likes to say he doesn't make movies for critics. But his most recent films, capped by the criminally awful "That's My Boy," indicate that he's making them only for his inflated ego.
Sandler plays Donny Berger, a beer-swilling lout whose 15 minutes of fame came at age 13, when he impregnated his hot teacher (Eva Amurri Martino). Now, in his 40s, Donny faces a prison term unless he can cough up $43,000 to the IRS in a weekend. His one chance to raise the cash is to bring his estranged son Todd (Andy Samberg) to a prison reunion with his mom for a scuzzy TV talk show. So Donny heads to Cape Cod to find the now-neurotic Todd, on the weekend he's to marry the high-strung Jamie (Leighton Meester).
This setup allows the boorish Donny to mix with stuck-up rich folks, who are inexplicably charmed by his profanity-spewing charisma.
