Sonny Koufax is a thirty two year old law school graduate living off a meager lawsuit award and lacking some serious career motivation. Sitting on his rear end, watching sports on TV and eating take out with his favorite delivery guy is the extent of Sonny's existence. The only problem is that Sonny's girlfriend Vanessa is about to drop him like a bad habit. In a misguided attempt to impress his soon to be ex, he adopts five year old Julian under the pretense of being the boys natural father. Faced with the challenges of sleep deprivation, bed wetting and Barney, Sonny takes a hilariously unorthodox approach toward fatherhood. But when Social Services threatens to take away the son he has grown to love, Sonny surprises everyone by taking on the responsibilities he has avoided for so long.

    Adam Richard Sandler was born September 9, 1966 in Brooklyn, New York, to Judith (Levine), a teacher at a nursery school, and Stanley Alan Sandler, an electrical engineer. He is of Russian Jewish descent. At 17, he took his first step towards becoming a stand-up comedian when he spontaneously took the stage at a Boston comedy club. He found he was a natural comic. He nurtured his talent while at New York University (graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1991) by performing regularly in clubs and at universities. During his freshman year, he snagged a recurring role as the Huxtable family's friend Smitty on The Cosby Show (1984). While working at a comedy club in L.A., he was "discovered" by Dennis Miller, who recommended him to Saturday Night Live (1975) producer Lorne Michaels and told him that Sandler had a big talent. This led to his being cast in the show in 1990, which he also wrote for in addition to performing. After Saturday Night Live (1975), Sandler went on to the movies, starring in such hit comedies as Airheads (1994), Happy Gilmore (1996), Billy Madison (1995) and Big Daddy (1999). He has also starred in Mr. Deeds (2002) alongside Winona Ryder; Eight Crazy Nights (2002), an animated movie about the Jewish festival of Chanukah; and Punch-Drunk Love (2002). He also writes and produces many of his own films and has composed songs for several of them, including The Wedding Singer (1998). Sandler has had several of his songs placed on the "Billboard" charts, including the classic "The Chanukah Song".
