    Edward Guthmann San Francisco Chronicle

    Nasty to women, cruel to old people and tosses in a cardboard gay couple for gratuitous laughs. It's also got one of those annoying soundtracks that lays rock music right over the dialogue -- as if it wanted to distract us from it. show more

    There's some heavy-duty Oedipal stuff going on underneath all the running gags about Hooters restaurants. [25 June 1999, Life, p.8E] show more

    Go to this movie for the cheap laughs and bodily fluid jokes -- those are its strengths. show more

    Wesley Morris San Francisco Examiner

    In a sense, Sandler is damned if he develops, damned if he devolves. But he needn't apologize for being who he is by turning a goldmine sitcom into a tame "Baby Boom" for guys. show more

    Mark Caro Chicago Tribune

    Recycling the regressive humor of his (Sandler’s) previous films, it piles on so much sentimentality that you wonder how anyone could consider him a renegade. [25 June 1999, Friday, p.A] show more

    Rick Groen The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    The film lacks the moronic consistency that graces the Sandlerian oeuvre at its most pristine. show more

    Hooter babes and the ubiquitous Steve Buscemi is a riot as the mercurial bum on the street. show more

    Ken Fox TV Guide

    It's not nearly as funny as "The Waterboy" and has little of "The Wedding Singer's" goofy charm, but die-hard Adam Sandler fans -- whose numbers are legion -- will find plenty to laugh at. show more

    Marc Savlov Austin Chronicle

    For Sandler's core audience of developmentally arrested males, it may all be a little too cute. show more

    Cute, but not so big on it's plot. The part of Sandler going to court is supposed to be sad, right?
