Click here to watch a FOX News interview with Dr. Ablow regarding Adam Sandler‚Äôs new movie, ‚ÄúThat‚Äôs My Boy‚ÄĚ.
Ablow says boycott the movie. NCFM agrees. Even Adam Sandler should know better.
In this movie, Donny, a 13-year-old boy, is seduced by his curvaceous teacher and she becomes pregnant, which the movie portrays as uproarious comedy, a laugh a minute.
Ablow asks the interviewer if she can imagine a comedy in which a male teacher impregnates a thirteen year-old-girl student.¬† She hesitates, and then says “Nope,” she can’t imagine that.
In the movie trailer there is a courtroom scene in which it appears the very pregnant teacher has been charged with some related crime.¬† The female judge orders, “Alright everybody, the fact that this has resulted in a pregnancy, leaves me no choice but to levy the maximum penalty.”
As the all too pregnant teacher is dragged from the courtroom she yells, “Take care of our baby Donny.” Donny and two underage friends are laughing and exchange high-fives. There’s a cameraman situated next to Donny filming the proceeding. Someone reaches out from behind him with a clenched fist and¬† hammers underage rape victim Donny a good one in the face with the emphatic kicker, “Dumbass!” Worse, throughout the movie, Donny, as a man, is stereotypically portrayed as Dumbass womanizing, beer guzzling, cigar smoking, foulmouthed, irresponsible, financially troubled oaf headed for prison.
Just from watching the movie trailers, I agree with Dr. Ablow to boycott this movie.¬† Sandler’s movies are usually written from some weird subconscious perspective that we supposedly all share, which is often funny because as we mature such behavior usually becomes unacceptable.¬† His movies often end with am endearing “moral to the story”.
Not this time.¬† While children may fantasize about having sex with one or more of his or her teachers, the reality is quite different, illegal, and generally destructive and harmful to all involved.
Please don’t support this movie by buying a ticket to see it or buying the video.¬† Send a message to the movie’s website that you will be boycotting the movie and asking friends and associates to do the same.
Take a few minutes, go to the sites below, leave comments, and help the world, Sony Pictures, and Mr. Sandler understand that the seduction of young children by their teachers should not be glorified, especially as comedy.
It’s called “child abuse,” “sexual assault,” or “rape” — all serious crimes with long lasting consequences… and, in no way, a laughing matter.
