That's My Boy Will Hit Blu-ray On October 16

On October 16, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment is releasing That’s My Boy on Blu-ray and DVD. Adam Sandler’s latest raunchfest, about a deadbeat dad meeting up with his successful son, also features Andy Samberg, as well as surprising appearances from both Susan Sarandon and her daughter, Eva Amurri Martino. The film may not be the greatest work we’ve ever seen from any of the aforementioned actors, but if you did like the flick, Sony is putting together a pretty nice disc for the set.

Both the Blu-ray and DVD sets will come with the same extras, including deleted scenes and a few featurettes. The extras don’t really blow my mind with their unusualness, but all in all, there seem to be enough bonus features to entice fans of the film.

That’s My Boy Bonus Features

  • “Greetings from Cape Cod” featurette
  • “Classy Rick’s Bacon and Leggs” featurette
  • “Who Are All These People?” featurette
  • Gag Reel
  • Deleted Scene—“Fun in the Tub”
  • Deleted Scene—“Hot Tub (Director’s Cut)”
  • Deleted Scene—“Money Trouble”
  • Deleted Scene—“School”
  • Deleted Scene—“The Donny Berger Story”

It’s amazing to consider Sandler’s well-known Happy Gilmore only made $8.5 million during its first week in theaters, while Adam Sandler’s more recent and less loved comedies Just Go With It and Jack and Jill busted out with $30 million and $25 million in their respective first weeks. Adam Sandler barely has to try in order to make money, which is why That’s My Boy was such a surprise. Widely panned by critics, That’s My Boy failed to make back its $70 million budget in theaters, which is sort of a shame for Samberg, whose two biggest starring releases, Hot Rod and That’s My Boy, have failed to crush.

It’s a good thing Samberg still has Celeste & Jesse Forever to back him up, or I may be giving up on the SNL actor as a leading man entirely. Here’s to hoping That’s My Boy’s Blu-Ray set reminds people the man can truly be funny when given the right material, even if the whole flick doesn’t pan out as smoothly as it should.
