''That's My Boy'' is a 2012 comedy film starring Creator/AdamSandler and [[Music/TheLonelyIsland Andy Samberg]]. The film centers on the character of Donny Berger (Sandler), a 12-year-old who becomes a national celebrity in the year 1984 after it's discovered that he's in a sexual relationship with his hot 22-year-old teacher, [=Mary McGarricle=]. Mary becomes pregnant from the affair, causing Donny to become a very young single father after she is sentenced to 30 years in prison. Flash forward to present day, where Donny is a washed-up loser who spends most of his time hanging out at the local strip club and is facing prison time for tax evasion (having not paid his taxes since the early 1990s). When he learns that his millionaire son, Han Solo Berger (Samberg) is getting married, he makes a deal with a reality TV show host to reunite Han Solo with his mother so that he'll have enough money to avoid going to jail. But first, Donny must make amends with his son, whom he has not spoken to in years.

* VulgarHumor: ''Constant'' cussing, nonstop crude sexual content involving masturbation, oral sex, semen, penis size, incest, even ''statutory rape'' among other things, and urine and vomit gags to top it all off. Yup, this movie's got it all. Not surprising since it's an Adam Sandler movie. And let's be honest, it's ActuallyPrettyFunny.

* DiscoDan: Donny still dresses likes it's the 1980s, and he still has a cassette tape player in his car (along with a large collection of mix tapes from 80s bands like VanHalen and DefLeppard).

* ArtisticLicenseMilitary: Deliberately invoked with Chad. His uniforms are a mixup of Marine Corps duty uniform, Army camo and rank devices, and completely fake insignia. He also talks about a "service revolver" (which the US Military hasn't had since 1912) and [[GunsDoNotWorkThatWay "emptying the clip"]] (any real Soldier or Marine knows the difference between a clip and a magazine). [[PhonyVeteran It turns out that he's lying about being a Marine]], gets away with it for most of the movie because neither Donny nor Todd/Han know any better, and is in fact a Modern Jazz dancer. [[CrossesTheLineTwice Who bangs his sister]].
