Adam Sandler cranks his manchild act up to complete jerk in this puerile comedy aimed at the lowest common denomination of audience.
Sonny Koufax is a college dropout who thinks that adopting an infant child will impress his girlfriend, but it only proves how immature he is as he goes about his usual business with no paternal nous at all. This could have been a new spin on Three Men & A Baby, but instead just goes for fart humour.
For some reason, Big Daddy is considered amongst Adam Sandler's best works, but I really didn't like it. I guess I just demand more intelligence from movies, comedy or otherwise.
