The movie is based on Sander’s abrasive character Donny Berger, who is in hock to the IRS for $43,000. He either has to pay or face three years in prison.
So he goes in search of his son, Han Solo Berger (Andy Samberg), who left home at 18 and never looked back. No Han, who dropped the name in favor of the more mundane Todd Peterson, is wealthy and about to get married.
Who better to hit up for the money than your own son. Donny just has to reunite with him and get reconnected. So he shows up on the eve of his wedding.
Needless to say, he doesn’t quite fit the vision of family life his son has created for himself. If you like Adam Sandler, you’ll love this film.
The cast also includes Leighton Meester as Christina, Susan Sarandon as Mary McGarricle, Milo Ventimiglia as Jack, and Rex Ryan as Jim Nance.
The film is being produced by Sandler’s Happy Madison Productions.
