Good watch, could watch agian, and can recommeond. While it's a typical Happy Madiosn / Adam Sandler, the importance of the child's welfare kind of balances it out as far as "seriousness" goes. The humor stands up, even if some of it is problematic, but even then that was the point, to push boundaries. It's a funny, charming movie that reminds of a time when I didn't like Leslie Mann, mostly because she got written into to some jerk roles, more than just being a straight man, like "vengeful woman" jerk, and even with her being "in the right" about it, she still comes off a a villain, in place of an antagonist other than "life". The movie is exactly what the premise is: by horrible circumstance some kid gets stuck with Adam Sandler, comedy ensues. Nothing really special, but it's not bad even after 20 years.
