    Default New Adam Sandler movie That's My Boy (many VH refetences)

    I just saw the new Adam Sandler movie That's My Boy. As usual, there were a lot of VH references throughtout the movie:
    - Teenage character playing Sandler's role at the beginning of the movie says he has two tickets to the VH show and asks his teacher to attend with him
    - And the Cradle Will Rock is played during one scene
    - Dance the Night Away is played in its entirety during the movie and ending credits
    - Ice Cream Man is played during the last part of the movie as Sandler's character is at a hotel as he is trying to meet up with his son's (Han Solo) fiance
    - Sandler wears the Van Halen lion shirt during the last scene when they're at a bar watching the end of a marathon with Vanilla Ice and Rex Ryan

    That's pretty neat. He usually incorporates a few VH references into movies when he can. How was the movie itself? I'm iffy on going to see it.

    I thought it was pretty funny. It's one of Sandler's best comedies in years IMO. The Rush fans will also like Sandler's Fiero with the Rush logo on the hood.

    This movie garnered a D- from the Dallas News.

    You don't see too many D- ratings given....

    The Tom Cruise 80's film got a D. What VH songs did they use ???

    Even with the VH references, I won't watch this until it's on Encore someday, which may not be that far off, after get the $ from Pay-per-View and video rentals....

    "Dance The Night Away" .... really.... Not my 1st choice to play complete in a movie, or to run the credits with. VH Lite.

    But if you like it.... Fine

    You are about the only person who actually paid to see the new Sandler movie. It tanked big time this weekend (So did Rock of Ages).

    I saw Rock of Ages at the drive-in with my family this weekend. It was pretty lame, I've seen the play too, and I enjoyed that a lot. The movie just kinda sucked, and the songs were just cheap karaoke versions that make you want to hear the real ones even more. Tom Cruise was OK I guess, but he can't sing, I don't care that people think he can. He is about as hard rock as Mr. Rogers. I can't stand Bon Jovi, but listening to Cruise butcher "Wanted Dead or Alive" made me yearn for JBJ's voice. That's how bad it was.

    I didn't hear any VH in the movie. A couple VH references, guy wearing the lion shirt and buying a 1984 LP at the end of the movie. That's it. It's about the singing anyway, not the music or guitar playing, which is VERY secondary, if not completely inconsequential. I missed the opening credits, so maybe that's where they played VH, because it wasn't anywhere else in the film.

    But pretty fucking bad movie. I do give it a little slack because it is a musical, not really a movie per se.

    I'd rather listen to every Sammy Hagar album than watch Sandler's following movies:

    Big Daddy
    Little Nicky
    Mr.Deeds
    Chuck and Larry
    Zohan
    Grownups
    Just Go With It
    Jack and Jill
    That's My Boy

    Man this guy has made some real crap.

    Up next on the schedule for him is a Candy Land movie and Grownups 2.

    Yikes.

    The guy gave some efforts with Punch Drunk Love, Click and Funny People. But that shit up there is completely worthless.

    After Cruise's performance in Risky Business, he (Cruise) does not have any no Hard Rock cred, as far as I'm concerned. Others may have though that was 'good stuff', but, not I.

    I thought LITTLE NICKEY was absolutly hilarious.I really enjoyed it and laughed so much my face and stomach hurt.after reading this thread now Im going to get the dvd and watch it again.I like his voice and the dog.Meatball is his name.

    The worst Adam Sandler movie IMO is FUNNY PEOPLE.I was bored out of my mind and couldnt wait for it to end.they should have called it NOT FUNNY PEOPLE.

    PUNCH DRINK LOVE was absolutly outstanding.I really enjoyed that one and must see it again.It would be good if he could make another good drama story like that.very impressive deep human interrelations charactor study type film.kinda reminded me of MAGNOLIA,HAPPINESS and AMERICAN BEAUTY.geat movies.

    This new one looks kinda lame to me for some reason,and im not a fan of that abam sandberg. Every bit ive seen him do on SNL is just ridiculas.I think he is a geek and do not like him at all.he is very annoying to me and wish they would have cast any other comedic actor in stead of him.then maybe it would have been good.they could have gotten one of those big bang theory actors.Leonard or Sheldon would have made it funny.

    I am afraid to watch any new comedy in the theaters anymore. Stupid funny has become the norm which kills it for me

    So for all this, is Rock or Dad worth watching on DVD?
    It is what it is

    The only Adam Sandler movie I can say I thoroughly enjoyed was Happy Gilmore.
    Taylor Swift is nice to look at. Adele can sing.

    David Lee Roth did the impossible. He made Van Halen better. Deal with it!

    Sandler should just call his next move "Ball of Shit". He's just churning out uninspired, cliched, asinine movies.

    Funny: Wedding Singer, Happy Gilmore,

    Amusing: Waterboy

    Mildly amusing: 50 First Dates, Anger Management

    Terrible: everything else

    He's also working on Candyland for Hasbro. That ought to be an Oscar contender.
