Consensus: While it does represent a new foray into raunch for the normally PG-13 Sandler, That's My Boy finds him repeating himself to diminishing effect - and dragging Andy Samberg down with him.

The basic joke keeps on giving and the sweetness of the parent-child bonding scenes plays well.

Sandler's latest wicked pissah, a paean to let-it-all-hang-out party-guy sloppiness...

There is nothing creative, amusing, valuable or interesting about Sandler's work. That's My Boy isn't the worst film I have ever seen; it's just one of the saddest and most exhausting.

It points you toward the irresistible conclusion that for all his success Sandler feels only contempt for his audience and tremendous insecurity about his own stature in the comedy universe.

If someone told you about almost every joke in That's My Boy, you would think they were either a sociopath or a budding serial killer.

This crude and unfunny comedy is easily the worst movie of 2012.

Vulgar, tasteless, mean-spirited and most offensive of all--not funny.

Deadspin

Yet again Adam Sandler has taken a fairly clever concept for a broad comedy and just detonated it with some of the stupidest, most repetitive gags imaginable.

A mixed bag that I mostly enjoyed thanks to hyperbolic statements of the film's ineptitude. It really wasn't all that bad, and there were some moments… More

Everyone has a teenage crush... Donny's went a little too far. Good funny movie! The plot of the movie is actually quite descent, and it is a spiral of… More

Yep, another Sandler stinker. I honestly don't know why I keep doing it to myself. It's clear he's never going to make another Wedding Singer.

Sandler has done it again! Insulted our intelligence, that is, with another cringe-worthy effort of a comedy. Because after setting a new record in degeneracy… More
