NSFW 'That's My Boy' Trailer Is Raunchy, But Is It Funny?

It's getting harder to get a read on Adam Sandler's latest comedy, 'That's My Boy,' but this new NSFW trailer makes it look just a little bit funnier than what we've previously seen.

'That's My Boy' stars Adam Sandler as a washed-up loser named Donny, who kicked his son Todd (Andy Samberg) to the curb on his 18th birthday. Now, years later, Donny has sought out his son on the eve of Todd's wedding, wreaking havoc on Todd and the life he's created for himself.

The new trailer features a stream of misogynist jokes and crude humor. These guys really want you to know that this is more like the old Adam Sandler -- but can he even pull that off anymore?

The supporting cast is killer, including Will Forte, James Caan, Rachel Dratch, Susan Sarandon, and Ana Gasteyer. Are these 'SNL' alums along just to help out their pal Andy Samberg, or were they drawn to some genuinely funny material? It's hard to tell because the trailers so far have painted this as the typical low-brow, commercial Adam Sandler nonsense. And instead of doing his mushy-mouthed voice occasionally, his character just talks like that the whole time. It's not doing much to sell us on why we should see it, aside from the curious inclusion of such awesome comedic talent.

Still, we're willing to give the film a chance because there's just no way MacGruber himself would sign on to such a heaping pile of garbage... Right?
