The red-band trailer for the R-rated comedy That’s My Boy (previously titled “I Hate You Dad“) has gone online. The film stars Adam Sandler as rich party animal who tries to avoid going to jail for tax evasion by getting his estranged and independently-wealthy son (Andy Samberg) to front him the cash to pay back the IRS. The jerk-off dad decides to make this play during the son’s upcoming nuptials and chaotic hilarity ensues.
There are two surprising things about this trailer. First, this is Sandler’s first R-rated comedy since 1996’s Bulletproof. Second, I chuckled a few times during this trailer, which doesn’t make sense since I can’t remember the last time an Adam Sandler movie made me do that. Hit the jump to check out the red-band trailer. The film also stars Leighton Meester and James Caan. That’s My Boy opens June 15th.
Trailer via MTV (and yes, sports’ fans, that’s New York Jets coach Rex Ryan playing Sandler’s financial advisor. Notice that his office is decorated in Boston sports fan paraphernalia).
Here’s the official synopsis for That’s My Boy:
While still in his teens, Donny (Adam Sandler) fathered a son, Todd (Andy Samberg), and raised him as a single parent up until Todd’s 18th birthday. Now, after not seeing each other for years, Todd’s world comes crashing down on the eve of his wedding when an uninvited Donny suddenly shows up. Trying desperately to reconnect with his son, Donny is now forced to deal with the repercussions of his bad parenting skills.
