Last week, the red-band trailer debuted for Adam Sandler's latest entry in his pursuit of truth, “That's My Boy,” and today a green-band trailer has arrived, revealing many more plot details along with the wacky shenanigans his production company Happy Madison has always promised.

Sans F-bombs or boobs on display, the trailer really has no choice but to reveal the film's story, or at least the series of events surrounding the baseball-to-the-throat physical gags and repertory cameos. It starts off with a flashback to Sandler's character's middle school days and his teenage lust for a female teacher, which leads to a breach of student-teacher relations and her getting pregnant. Cut to her being carted off to jail and Sandler growing into the endearingly coarse, obnoxiously loud adult you'd expect.

Faced with the recent possibility of going to jail for tax evasion, Sandler locates and then moves in with his estranged love child (played by Andy Samberg), now extremely wealthy and engaged, in hopes of financial help. Naturally, Samberg isn't too keen on the idea, but after a mid-trailer montage of strippers, convertibles, and requisite Nick Swardson appearance, things appear to be looking up for a father-son bond being restored.

With Sandler's career, audiences and fans know exactly what they're getting into, and “That's My Boy” appears to be consistent with that dynamic. With a supporting cast of such names as Vanilla Ice, James Caan, and Susan Sarandon, at least his penchant for erratic casting choices remains intact.

See for yourself if it's the next “Billy Madison” or “Little Nicky” on June 15th, Father's Day, just for those those wanting a potentially volatile outing for that special dad. [MTV]
