How Much Will "That's My Boy" Gross in Its Opening Weekend?

The final value was $13.00 Million
FITTINGLY to be released on Father's Day weekend, That's My Boy is yet another 'classic' Adam Sandler flick, with Sandler once again reprising one of his favorite stock roles of the irresponsible adult who refuses to grow up. Andy Samberg of Saturday Night Live plays Sandler's son, who is forced into a reunion with his long-lost dad, and predictable shenanigans ensue. This is obviously pandering to the teenaged-male crowd, although the R rating may constrict views. But we think that Adam Sandler's hardcore fanbase will come out as well, especially considering the superficial similarities to older Sandler movies like Happy Gilmore, Big Daddy, Billy Madison, and the Waterboy. Like it or not, Sandler knows his audience base, and he knows how to make them laugh. In fact, last year's Jack and Jill opened at $25M, a respectable figure for a November screwball comedy, although not as high as February's Just Go With It ($30M), which had Sandler in an arguably more palatable romantic-comedy scenario.
