    Review: 'That's My Boy' Predictably Juvenile & Surprisingly Far Uglier Than The Usual Adam Sandler Offering

    Adam Sandler, comedian, A-List star, and leading man of this Friday’s “That’s My Boy,” is not an idiot.

"Hairspray" helmer Adam Shankman directs this movie that will finally kill the '80s nostalgia that continues to plague u...
