Big Daddy

I donít ever dismiss a movie out of hand.

After all, even the worst movies come from hard work and sweat of dozens of people... And who am I to dismiss their toiling? 

With that in mind, I have to say Big Daddy sucks.

It has no redeeming value whatsoever.  It isn’t funny.  It isn’t heartwarming.  It isn’t anything. 

Adam Sandler doesn’t even try to portray a character (which isn’t beyond his grasp, he was pretty good in The Wedding Singer.)  The story of a lazy degenerate (Sandler) who turns a cute little five-year-old boy into… well… a five-year-old lazy degenerate, Big Daddy is poorly-plotted lowest-common-denominator filmmaking.  

Don’t bother with this piece of garbage. (6/99)
