I've always held the belief that this was one of Sandler's legitimately good movies. I no longer hold that belief. It's no Wedding Singer. But maybe the Wedding Singer is no Wedding Singer. I'm almost afraid to go and re-watch that one now. Not that I was under any illusion in the first place that Big Daddy was a great movie (I had it rated three stars), but this was much worse than I remembered. It's funny how our memory doesn't change as our taste in movies matures, leading to traumatic re-watch events like this one. Well, maybe traumatic is going too far in this case, but you know what I mean.

"Big Daddy" stars Adam Sandler as Sonny Koufax, a layabout who wins $200,000 in a lawsuit after a cab runs over his foot, and now hangs around the Manhattan loft that he shares with his roommate, a lawyer played by Jon Stewart--who must be doing well, since the space they occupy would sell or rent for serious money. Sonny's girlfriend Vanessa (Kristy Swanson) tells him to get a real job, but he says he has one: He's a tollbooth attendant, I guess, although the movie gives him nothing but days off.
