Henry Roth is a man afraid of commitment up until he meets the beautiful Lucy. They hit it off and Henry think he's finally found the girl of his dreams, until he discovers she has short-term memory loss and forgets him the next day.
Sonny Koufax is 32 years old. He's a law school graduate. He's got a nice apartment in Manhattan. There's just one problem. He does nothing, except sit on his butt and live off an investment that was the result of a meager lawsuit he won a year ago. But after his fed up girlfriend leaves him, he comes up with the ingenious idea to adopt a five year old boy to showcase his newfound maturity. But things don't go as planned, and Sonny finds himself the unlikely foster father that will change his perspective on just looking out for himself.Written by
Adam Sandler's wife, Jackie, played the waitress in the bar that gets Julian (Cole and Dylan Sprouse) a root beer. This started the tradition of having his wife cameo in almost every Adam Sandler film. See more »

Oh, he already left. He forgot to say goodbye to you.
Then why are you here?
I'm cleaning because you're useless.
Then are you going to go to your Hooters reunion? And talk about who's ass sticks out the most while wearing your shorts?
At least I can fit my ass in to my shorts, fatty.

Speaking of fatty, whose is this?
I don't know.
I'm eating it then.

When Julian wets his bed and Sonny sees it, his line of "That's a shit-load of piss" was changed to: "What is that, Lake Michigan?" See more »
For the most part, "Big Daddy" is the average Adam Sandler movie, with him as slacker messing with the status quo. But this one certainly does have some intelligence to it. Portraying Sandler adopting a boy (twins Cole and Dylan Sprouse), the movie certainly gives adoption a good name, even if it uses complete silliness to do so. It's mostly interesting how the movie shows that he has to mature more in the process of raising this boy.
One noticeable thing is the presence of Jon Stewart (I believe that this was before he started hosting "The Daily Show"). Also appearing are Adam Sandler regulars Josh Mostel, Allen Covert, Rob Schneider and Steve Buscemi, plus Joey Lauren Adams as Sandler's hubby. A really enjoyable movie.
