Audience Member Run of the mill Dean and Jerry. Not their worst, but certainly not their best. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review Audience Member Just like in 'My Friend Irma' Lewis and Martin steal the show despite the fact the best actor in the show is Eddie Mayehoff. In a nutshell 'That's My Boy' is a fun comedy worth watching, but don't expect something large. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review nick k The story is OK, but is far from original. Lewis and the comedy in general start out funny, but it seems to fade as the movie progresses to the point that the end has little to no funny moments. I was amazed by how young Lewis looked- just like an 18 year old, Martin on the other hand was too old to play a college student. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Jerry's character is so shy and restrained that he doesn't get to do what he does best, which is being completely spastic. The movie is unoriginal, predictable and really kind of boring. Dino is quite the unlikeable tool in it as well. And at age 33, he's the least convincing college freshman ever. I'll give it some points for a few funny Jerry moments, but there aren't nearly enough of them. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Read all reviews
