''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.

!!That's My Boy provides examples of:
* ActorAllusion: This isn't the first time [[spoiler:Susan Sarandon]] has played Samberg's Mother.
* TheAlcoholic: Donny almost always has a beer in his hand, and stashes bottles and cans of Budweiser everywhere.
* ArtisticLicenseLaw: No one would ever be given 30 years for this degree of statutory rape in real life.
* AsHimself: Vanilla Ice, and Todd Bridges.
** Although the film version of Vanilla Ice differs from the real life version. In the film he's portrayed as a washed-up rapper who now works at an ice skating rink, while in real life he's a successful motocross racer who has made considerable amounts of money from his winnings.
* BadassGrandpa: Father [=McNally=].
* TheBartender: Champale's daughter, Brie, works as the bartender in Donny's favorite strip club.
* BetweenMyLegs: Seen when [[spoiler:Grandma Delores]] seduces Donny.
* BiggerIsBetterInBed: Inverted. Jamie says that [[spoiler: Chad]] is half the size of Han but is a much better lover. Then again, he's probably had years of practice doing what she likes.
* BitchInSheepsClothing: [[spoiler:Jamie at first seems like a sweet, if somewhat neurotic girl. As the film goes on we learn that she is shrill and controlling towards Han, and then we learn that she's having an affair with her own brother.]]
* BrickJoke: Father [=McNally=] prohibits texting, phone calls or "that game with the birds" in his church. Later in the film, the replacement pastor is on his phone, grumbling "Fly farther, stupid bird!"
* BringMyBrownPants: Han carries an extra pair of underwear at all times after soiling himself as a child. [[spoiler:Later in the film he soils himself again after being tazed.]]
* [[spoiler:BrotherSisterIncest]]
* ChekhovsGun: [[spoiler: Early in the film Donny bets $20 on a fat man running the Boston Marathon, whose odds of winning are 8000-to-1. At the end of the film the fat man wins the marathon, causing Donny to win $160,000 and pay off his debt to the IRS.]]
* CoolOldLady: Grandma Delores
* ADateWithRosiePalms: Donny spends one entire evening doing this to Grandma Delores.
* 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).
* DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnMale: Played with, Donny is cheered on by the school for having sex with his teacher and enjoys the experience, but it IS treated seriously in-universe, as the presiding judge says that despite some people not thinking of Donny as a victim, what the teacher did was still a serious crime, and the fact that she showed no remorse leads the judge to give her the maximum sentence of thirty years in prison.
** However, the movie portrays the relationship between Donny and his teacher as being born out of genuine love, not to mention showing that being raped by the teacher as being best thing that ever happened to him because of the money he got.
* EmbarrassingTattoo: Han's entire back is covered by a New Kids On The Block tattoo.
* {{Fanboy}}: Donny likes ''StarWars'' so much that he named his son after Han Solo. Also, Donny's accountant is a die-hard New England Patriots fan.

* IBangedYourMom: The reason why Vanilla Ice has been angry with Donny for several years.
* InterruptedIntimacy
* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Although Donny was a lousy parent to Han, it was more out of ignorance than anything else. He genuinely cares about his son and wants him to be happy.
* ManChild: Donny.
* MadeForTVMovie: An in-universe example. Donny's life was the subject of a television movie called ''The Donny Berger Story''.
* NoHoldsBarredBeatdown: Han's brawl with Father [=McNally=] is one of these until Donny intervenes.
* OhCrap: [[spoiler:The look on Jamie and Chad's faces when Donny shows up at the wedding to voice his objections.]]
* PapaWolf: Donny when he [[spoiler:knocks out Jamie when she's about to knife Todd.]]
* PoorMansPorn: In one scene, Donny has ADateWithRosiePalms over a pair of photographs of [[spoiler:Grandma Delores]]; one as a young woman in a vintage swimsuit, and one from the present day as an elderly woman.
* ThePornomancer: Donny. The fact that he had an affair with his attractive teacher when he was only 12 years old causes many of the male characters in the movie to view him as a sex god. [[spoiler:He also seems to have little difficulty hooking up with other women, such as Grandma Delores and the manager at the Men's Spa.]]

* SocialServicesDoesNotExist: Donny somehow raised his son as a teenager while his mother is in jail.
* [[HookerWithAHeartOfGold Stripper With A Heart Of Gold]]: Champale, who seems to honestly care for Donny's well-being.
* TapOnTheHead: Donny delivers a few of these during the film.
* ThisIsForEmphasisBitch: After Todd whacks Chad with a bottle, he has the perfect rejoinder. "At ease, bitch!"
* TimeshiftedActor: The young version of Mary [=McGarricle=] is played by Eva Amurri Martino. The middle-aged version of the character is played by Martino's real-life mother, Susan Sarandon.
* TitleDrop: Donny says "That's my boy" a couple of times. Todd even says "I hate you, Dad" which was the film's original title.
* VillainousBreakdown: Jamie tries to attack Todd with a cake knife at the end, only to be knocked out by Donny.
* [[spoiler:VillainousIncest: Near the end of the film, Donny walks in on Jamie having sex with her brother, Chad.]]
* VomitIndiscretionShot: [[spoiler:A drunken Han Solo pukes on Jamie's wedding dress after his bachelor party. Also, Donny throws up after discovering Jamie and Chad's incestuous relationship.]]
* VulgarHumor: ''Constant'' cussing, nonstop crude sexual content involving masturbation, oral sex, semen, penis size, [[spoiler: incest]], even ''statutory rape'' among other things, and urine and vomit gags to top it all off. Yup, this movie's got it all.
* WouldHitAGirl: Donny's fine with hitting Jamie on the head with a beer bottle.
* WellDoneSonGuy: Inverted; this movie is about a father attempting to win the approval of his son.
