Sandler & Samberg Try Hard in New 'That's My Boy' Red Band Trailer

That's My Boy

Well, the first red band trailer for the new comedy That's My Boy starring Adam Sandler and Andy Samberg (who are both now "Saturday Night Live" alums after the latter's departure from the show last weekend) didn't do much to impress, and unfortunately, I don't find more than a light chuckle in a new raunchy red band trailer either. Samberg resurrects a "super dead" joke from Hot Rod (an underrated comedy for sure), but I hope there's more in the movie that brings the funny. Right now my only hope is for Will Forte and maybe some cameos (a glimpse of James Caan helps) to bring some magic to the comedy.

Here's the new red band trailer for Sean Anders & John Morris' That's My Boy, originally via Yahoo:

A father moves in with his son right before his wedding and soon begins feuding with his daughter-in-law.

That's My Boy, originally I Hate You Dad, is co-directed by Sean Anders & John Morris, both behind Sex Drive previously, with Anders the director and Morris making his directorial debut this time around. The screenplay was written by newcomer David Caspe ("Happy Endings"), with rewrites by Ken Marino & David Wain (both of The Ten, Role Models, Wanderlust). Happy Madison Productions and Columbia Pictures are bringing That's My Boy to theaters starting on June 15th right in the middle of the summer. Worth seeing?

too bad sandberg got drugged and convinced to sign a contract to help piggy back sandler's career for a few more miles.

Imagine Downey Jr. in the Sandler part and we got ourselves a movie!

Nick Swardson in a mullet. Almost makes it worth it right there. I almost want to see this just to see if Sandler can still make me laugh. Ever since he went the Eddie Murphy route, I've hoped he would ditch the family-friendly thing and go back to good ol' raunchy R. Seems like he's just trying too hard though.

Please. Swardson's career ended after his Bark's commercial. That and the gay tooth fairy in I now pronounce you Chuck and Larry. "I dizzzou"

Lowrider_83 on Jun 6, 2012


I've seen neither. Don't have tv, and I will NEVER see Chuck and Larry, so he can do whatever he wants for a paycheck. He's still a funny bastard.

Why wouldn't anyone NOT want to see Chuck and Larry???? Jessica Biel in an extra-tight Catwoman suit? For the love of god, get yourself a job and buy a tv, man.

Lowrider_83 on Jun 7, 2012


Haha! Ok that point is valid, that would be a nice visual. I should specify, I have A tv, just not cable.

The last part was kinda funny.

When Sandler starts to do that whole Billy Madison retarded speech pattern, that's when i feel like building a time machine, going back in time just before his mom got knocked up by papa Sandler, and then punch her continuously in the ovaries to prevent his birth. Loved Happy Gilmore though............. gotta give that S.O.B. some credit for fighting Bob Barker's stunt double.

Lowrider_83 on Jun 6, 2012


Yeah, Happy Gilmore was great.

Looks retarded, properly. Like all Adam Sandler films. They are usually funny if you've been drinking heavily the night before.

here, here

God, I fucking hate it when Sandler falls back on that stupid semi-high pitched retard voice. It's so annoying! 

SuicidalOptimist on Jun 6, 2012


Just another retarded Adam Sandler movie.

haha naked people at the end

ccoltmanm on Jun 6, 2012


My comment is a bit biased since I'm a Sandler fan.  That bachelor night looks like it has epic potential and the naked couple chasing Sandberg at the end rubbed in a funny way.

I saw this movie last week. It's actually really damn funny. But stupid funny. Like Sandlers early work and his last funny movie was Big Daddy. As long as he doesn't write or direct a movie then anything he does is funny but the moment he decides to write or direct it himself the movie will instantly become shit.

I'm not sold on this.
