Rock Of Ages and That’s My Boy Have Disastrous Openings – Biff Bam Pop’s Box Office Wrap-Up Report, Weekend of June 15th
Tom Cruise and Rock Of Ages Battles Adam Sandler’s That’s My Boy – Biff Bam Pop’s Box Office Predictions, Weekend of June 15th, 2012
An R-rated comedy from two Saturday Night Live alum and a rock and roll musical that will take you back to 1987 are the big films opening this weekend. Will either of them manage to knock Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted from the top of the box office? Here are our predictions:
Adam Sandler movies can be hit and/or miss. Hit: Billy Madison. Miss: Little Nicky. But even the misses have their moments. That’s My Boy, the latest from Happy Madison studios, has just enough funny moments to makes up for the missing ‘je ne sais quoi’ that will keep this from being a hit comedy.
Then again, am I being too analytical here? That’s My Boy, which co-stars Andy Samberg as the ‘straight man’, follows any basic Adam Sandler movie formula: insane premise + old ladies in sexual context = leads to wacky endings.
This comedy also comes with lots of bonus SNL cast member appearances, and a few genuine laugh out loud moments that serve to remind me why I love Adam Sandler sometimes. Check out the trailer, and my quick review (with minimal spoilers) after the jump!
