Big Daddy is a 1999 American comedy film directed by Dennis Dugan and written by Steve Franks, Tim Herlihy and Adam Sandler. It stars Sandler, Joey Lauren Adams, Jon Stewart, Rob Schneider, Cole Sprouse, Dylan Sprouse, and Leslie Mann. The plot follows an overgrown adolescent man who gets dumped by his girlfriend for not accepting responsibility. He then proves he is a grownup by adopting a five-year-old boy who appears in his doorstep.
In New York City, Sonny Koufax is a 32-year-old slacker who refuses to take the bar exam (despite being a law graduate), works one day a week as a toll booth attendant, and lives off a large compensation payout from a minor accident. His girlfriend Vanessa threatens to break up with him unless he grows up. His roommate Kevin Gerrity proposes to his podiatrist girlfriend Corinne Maloney before he leaves for China to work on a case for his law firm, and she accepts. Sonny constantly teases Corinne, who strongly dislikes him, about her former job at Hooters.
