This comedy is one of my favorites. Watch this every year. Not for little kids though.
This is a sweet, joyful, hilarious comedy by Adam Sandler. This movie is rated PG-13, and that is because of frequent profanity, and one scene that I skip every time I watch this. This movie is ok for kids 12+, the version on live TV is for 11+. Oh, and I meant to tell you, the reason why I don't talk about consumerism in my reviews as much as CSM does, is because I think it doesn't matter very much, I think consumerism doesn't do any harm, so I think the whole "consumerism" in parents guide reviews is just stupid. Now the review starts. Positive Messages: Sandler's character proves to his dad he can have a kid, then he stops being a slacker. Violence: Some humorous slapstick violence, like tripping skateboarders with sticks. Violence doesn't matter very much. Although, some kids might be saddened by the part where the kid can't live with Sonny (Sandler's character). Sex: Nothing sexual, but some related to sex humor, but no actual sex talk. Although, the one scene I want EVERY parent to skip, or make their kids skip, is where 2 guys kiss in one scene, then Adam Sandler's character and someone else have a minor discussion about it. Not graphic, but fast-forward through it. In the beginning, a girl is shown in a bra, nothing shown. This scene doesn't matter very much. Another thing is when Sandler's character teases someone because they used to work at Hooter's, not that big of an issue, but's mentioned often. One brief mention of watching a different type of "porno", but that's only used once. Language: Very frequent. The "s" word and the "a" word are used often. The language is rough in the beginning. One use of the "d" word, the one that means a jerk. G.D. is used three times. D-bag is used once. "Boobs" is used five times, not a problem for 12+. In one scene, Sandler's character notices his ex dumped him for an old man, then he tries to shame her by talking about a private area reference, no cussing, but a little inappropriate. The kid swears little bit, (the "a" word four times, (a-hole once), which he got from Sandler, the G.D. word once, which he heard from an old man at the bar, and the private reference once). Drinking or Drugs: Not an issue. Someone on the side of the road mentions "doing mushrooms". Sandler jokes about dope and "Yoo-Hoo with a little rum" to make sure the kid's not hanging out with drug dealers. A reference to Sandler's character having a bag of pot in his underwear drawer. This is good for tweens ages 12 or 13, just mute some language and some crude dialogue, and skip that one scene, then it's hilarious.
