That’s My Boy

(R) ☆☆☆☆☆

Adam Sandler’s latest may be the stupidest comedy in history. Donny (Sandler) is a washed-up punk who, at age 13, fathered a child (Andy Samberg). Donny comes crashing back into his son Todd’s life just as he’s about to marry the wrong woman. The jokes that don’t target obese people, Asian-Americans, etc. involve Sandler braying, or peeing or masturbating. The filmmaking completely fails. The gross outs are incessant and tiresome. Somebody please tell Sandler to stop.

Idina Menzel

By Steve Bornfeld

One helluva broad. Bold and saucy—with a voice they could’ve heard back at the Tony Awards, televised while the Tony-winner herself was entertaining Las Vegas—Idina Menzel is a broad in the best sense, her artistry delivered with salty, sassy-gal earthiness: Revealing how she sang “Love for Sale” to seduce her college vocal teacher. Then powerfully and poignantly interpreting the classic for what it really is—not playful flirtation, but soul-shredding heartache.
