Good movie

There's a little language but nothing worse than the kids might hear from me in the car. From reading other reviews it seems most parents on here are a lithe prudish IMO. The only thing "sexual" is that there are two men in a gay relationship, for us that's not a problem we see that in our own family but I guess some might still see that as an issue.

The Best Adam Sandler Movie

This is a very good movie. It has a lot of comedy, but it also has a meaningful side. Adam Sandler portrays a slob who gets a kid. Overall the movie was unbelievably good.

This is not a kids' movie

Somehow people think Adam Sandler makes kids' movies. He doesn't - they just happen to have kids in them sometimes. Sadly, that may draw families to this movie when it is very inappropriate for the under 13 crowd. The language, sexual innuendo and use of violence to solve problems was way more intense than you'd expect from a movie featuring a 5-year-old character. There were good messages about responsibility and what it takes to be a "real" parent. However, the view of social services, fostering, birth parents and adoption was problematic. These are deep topics and need to be discussed with anyone who watches the movie. Would Julian really have been dropped at the doorstep? Would there have been no follow-up from social services? Would Sandler have been threatened with arrest? Would a child that young have been made to testify in open court? No. Sandler always has a appealing persona that overcomes the gutter-talk and humor. I wish he'd do something that made the most of his appeal in a cleaner or more serious way.
