Rotten: A silly, stupid story with a one-joke comic premise.

"The producing team of 'Big Daddy' has delivered another winner"

So the film isn't that great. But it is actually quite funny. I challenge anyone to deny that Schneider fighting an ape is funny. McGinley just plays Dr Cox even down to the nervous finger nose wipe thingy. Luckily it works. The reverse racism stuff is brilliant and the whole dialogue from the mob member sent to the back is pure comedy gold. Very stupid but very likeable, assuming you are in a good mood.
