My initial impression based on the trailer was that this would be another crass Sandler flick (Sandler is cool, don't get me wrong), but might have potential. I was surprised - It was very good! Adam Sandler adopts a 5-year-old boy to prove to his girlfriend he's ready for the next stage of his life. She dumps him anyway, and Sandler realizes that he doesn't know what he's doing, and so tries to give the kid back. While he's got him, though, they do all sorts of crazy things and have a lot of fun. Rob Schneider provides excellent comic relief, as does Steve Buscemi, who has a cameo in this film. In short, a normally irresponsible man grows up by having to deal with the joys of parenthood. A thumbs-up for heart, and two thumbs up for humor and entertainment! Special features include an HBO First Look which is worthwhile viewing.

I am a huge fan of Adam Sandler. I am a huge fan of the Sprouse twins. I am a huge fan of Jon Stewart - lets face it, I'm a huge fan of everyone in this movie. But that doesn't make my review biased because the movie is what MADE me fans of them.

The story is a 30-something law-school graduate slacker named Sonny Koufax (Sandler) who finds a kid on his doorstep, Julian (Cole & Dylan Sprouse). Apparently the kid is his roommate's from a one-night fling 6 years ago. Perfect. His roommate Kevin (Jon Stewart) just left for China on business.

Realizing his girlfriend is about to leave him, Koufax gets an idea. He 'pretends' to adopt little Julian by calling himself the biological father, fooling social services. Too late, his girlfriend ain't coming back. Now he's stuck with the kid, so he tells social services to call him when a foster family gets lined up.

Over the weeks Koufax comes to genuinely love the little kid. When a foster family appears ready to take Julian (recently dubbed 'Frankenstein') away, Koufax is about to call it all off and make it permanent - but social services finds out he's not Kevin Gerrity.

Sonny ends up taking the whole thing to court.

I personally think this is Adam Sandler at his absolute best. It delivers the laughs that Sandler always promises, but also has a heartwarming, sentimental side - and amazingly, it doesn't take away from the comedy.

I can sum it all up in five words: YOU MUST SEE THIS MOVIE.

The review from "The New Yorker" on this page is probably one of the most pompous and hollow reviews I've ever read. "Big Daddy" is a great movie. I'm a long-time Adam Sandler fan but, put it this way, after seeing this movie, so is my mother. She's usually not into this kind of comedy, but this has become one of her all-time favorite movies. So, saying that "Anyone looking to solve the mystery of Adam Sandler's mass appeal is not going to do it here" seems to be a ridiculous statement.

The movie is funny from "all angles". The story is good, the cast is as solid as I've ever seen in a comedy, etc, etc... Whether or not you're usually into Sandler's brand of comedy, you will most likely appreciate this film. I feel that this is Adam Sandler at his best - and it is certainly one of his most successful projects.

Highly recommended.

Sonny Koufax is 32 years old. He's a law school graduate. He's got a nice apartment in Manhattan. There's just one problem. He does nothing, except sit on his butt and live off an investment that was the result of a meager lawsuit he won a year ago. But after his fed up girlfriend leaves him, he comes up with the ingenious idea to adopt a five year old boy to showcase his newfound maturity. But things don't go as planned, and Sonny finds himself the unlikely foster father that will change his perspective on just looking out for himself. This is a great movie and it will make you laugh. I would recommend this to anyone who like to laugh.

I rented this movie expecting a couple laughs and a good time, but I recived a new favorite movie. Not only were the actors playing Julian the custest five year-olds ever, but it was more than just an okay comedy. I laughed a ton and almost cried when Julian was taken away. I never cry during movies, so this was incredible. If you are looking for a funny and touching flick rent this movie.

I enjoy Adam Sandler, he always has done a nice job at al lthe characters he took on.He plays Sonny this time, yes still another immautre character.(like in his other films)

Sonny wants to gain his girl friends attention.After finding a little child beside his door (Jullian) he soon becomes atatched.

Although Sonny uses him alittle for attention, he soon realizes Jullians position and is willing to take him in for good.

This movie has its funny moments and a plot that i can actual believe.The music was awsome with the Garbage song "When I Grow Up"

I think this is a really sturdy movie Adam Sandler is improving in acting and in general humor.I really think anyone could enjoy this movie and alot of the jokes you'll probably constantly talk of afterwords.

I'm a die hard Adam Sandler fan so of course I own this movie and think that it's great. However, in all fairness, the average person probably would not get a "big" kick out of this film....possibly some youngsters will. However, Adam's character just seemed a little too calm and not as excitable as many of the other roles he has become so well known for. To me Joey Lauren Adams stole the show. She's a very pretty lady and draws everyones attention when she's on the screen. If you like her be sure to check out a movie called S.F.W. she has a small but memorable (partial nude scene) role in that film.
