A lovable oaf adopts a five-year-old boy in order to impress a girlfriend. Misguided parenting techniques are applied and found wanting.
Without being as polished a concept as The Wedding Singer (although Sandler does his best with the soundtrack by including Styx, Van Halen, Big Audio Dynamite and Eurythmics), or touching the anarchic heights of Happy Gilmore, Big Daddy is clear evidence that - for the moment at least - this pony doesn't need a new trick.
