I am a huge Adam Sandler fan. The reason for that, is because of films like these that he stars in. Every one of his films are hilarious in their own way, and they all have that Adam Sandler spark to them. "Big Daddy", does not disappoint. It was a hilarious film, with great scenes, and an awesome plot. Adam Sandler plays the role of Kevin Garrity. He is asked to take custody of a young child name... read more

Definitely Not Sandler's Worst

Just had a quick flick through the old reviews done on this film and I came across one saying it's: Sandler's worst movie.

Seriously?! I mean, out of all the terrible films Adam Sandler has done, people even have the cheek to call this very average film "bad". There's a difference between average and bad. And being since I've seen most of Sandler's films, even including Going Overbo... read more

This movie is just as hilarious as Adam Sandler is. If not my all-time favourite of Adam Sandler's movies then its sure to come close.

Pop Culture Phenomenon Films: 90’s (779 movies items)

" During the 90’s, it looked like Adam Sandler could do no wrong, all he had to was to do the same thing. In almost every film. This film, was no exception, with the Sandman not yet wearing thin. The critics may not not like Sandler, but who cares? Those films, where not made for them. This time, he plays a single guy, who becomes a dad. You can guess, what happens next."

Likable

“I can understand why Big Daddy or Adam Sandler mayn't be for everybody. I am not a fan of Adam Sandler and Big Daddy while a likable movie and one of Sandler's better films could have been a little more. Sandler himself while the character takes a while to warm to is good here, as are the supporting cast, the kid in particular is very cute rather than annoying. Apart from an occasionally predictable story, some uneven pacing and one or two slapstick moments that are more cringe-worthy than funny, Big Daddy has a heartfelt and entertaining story with some scenes that did touch me, nice production values and soundtrack, a fun script, good direction and some slapstick and gross-out moments that worked out better than anticipated. All in all, a likable film. 7/10 Bethany Cox” read more
