Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics 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.

Surprisingly mean-spirited from start to finish.

Raunchy, juvenile humor will offend many, amuse very few.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that That's My Boy is a hard-R Adam Sandler comedy that's full of sex jokes and strong language. There's barely a sentence in the entire film (even a wedding ceremony!) that doesn't contain multiple "f--k"s and other curse words ("s--t," "bitch," "a--hole," and many more). Sandler's character is perpetually drinking a beer -- even first thing in the morning. There's much debauchery; characters drink until they nearly pass out or throw up, smoke marijuana, and engage in adulterous sexual activity. The sex jokes and scenes are nonstop; everything from masturbation to threesomes to incest to statutory rape is depicted, mentioned, and explored. There's little to redeem this movie, even for older teens.
