Sonny Koufax is a kid who has never grown up. Although he is a law school graduate an incident with a taxi left him with money in the bank and only the desire to loaf. He has no real job to speak of and although he has a girlfriend (how is beyond me) she is tired of his immature ways and threatens to dump him.

When his newly engaged flat mate goes to China for six weeks on business, social services call around with his five year old son, Julian, who resulted from a one night stand several years earlier. Spotting the chance to show his girlfriend he's serious about their relationship he pretends he's the real father and adopts the boy. However, his girlfriend is none too impressed and introduces Sonny to her new boyfriend - a man in his fifties who, unlike Sonny, has a five year plan.

After a few days of bed wetting and throwing up at every possibility, Sonny wants to send Julian back. However, as the pair enjoy his immature pranks and life-style, Sonny realises that he is falling for Julian and soon appreciates the many responsibilities that come with the job.

The picture is bright and colourful with no signs of artifacting or outlining and has an above average bit-rate throughout the film. There were no problems with any of the indoor scenes and since most of the film took place during the day the DVD technology took everything in its stride.

The sound can only be classed as functional, but with this being a comedy film you can't be expecting a huge amount of action in the sound department. The rear channels are occasionally used, but only for the musical score, and the dialogue is crisp and clearly audible in the centre channel.

The extras are reasonable enough giving the DVD extra value for money, although the "making of" featurette is a little brief and to the point. However, one bonus point are the music videos - they are actually from artists I've heard of!

Without spoiling the plot of the film, it makes a refreshing change for a film to end in an unexpected, although still happy, manner. It is a pleasant enough film with ample laughs to cheer you up on one of those bad days.
