Weekend Movie Guide: The Hell That I Have Chosen

By / 06.15.12

Still undoubtedly laughing at God.


Opening Everywhere: That’s My Boy, Rock of Ages

Opening Wherever, I don’t Care: Your Sister’s Sister

Never Heard of It: The Girl from the Naked Eye

FilmDrunk Suggests: Dudes, why bother?

At least that's not Tyler Perry.


That’s My Boy

Rotten Tomatoes Scores: 20% critics, 71% audience, 100% me questioning that audience number

Gratuitous Review Quotes:

“Watching Sandler in That’s My Boy, his latest assault on subtlety, good taste, and other values that we critics like to trash the star for dumping on, I can’t say that I laughed a lot (though when I did laugh, it was big and loud). But on some level I marveled at the conviction that Sandler pours into playing a character like Donny Berger, a boneheaded, loud-mouthed alcoholic loser from Boston.” – Owen Gleiberman, EW (Yeah, Sandler’s a regular icon of conviction and artistic integrity.)

“The promise of the film lies in the interplay between Sandler and Samberg, but Samberg’s character is all tension and nerves, which works against his natural talents. He ends up coming off flat. And Sandler’s Berger is the most loutish, annoying character he’s come up with since ‘Little Nicky.’ Nicky came from hell; viewers of ‘That’s My Boy’ will feel like they’re in it.” – Adam Graham, Detroit News

Armchair Analysis: As I’ve previously stated, I’m going to see That’s My Boy this weekend and I will have a full review on Monday. I’m not excited about this, but it needs to be done. Wish me luck.
