Here’s a story, and it’s true: Adam Sandler fathered Han Solo. Don’t believe us? Just watch “That’s My Boy” and you’ll know we’re telling you the truth — a bit of an exaggerated truth, perhaps, but the truth all the same.
If you have yet to see Sandler and Andy Samberg’s “That’s My Boy,” you’ll get the chance to right your wrong when the movie hits Blu-ray and DVD with UltraViolet this coming fall. MTV News can exclusively report that the film’s home video release is slated for October 16, with a slew of bonus features tagging along for the ride. The Blu-ray and DVD release includes five deleted scenes, a gag reel (which you can peep in the video below) and three behind-the-scenes featurettes.
In the “Who Are All These People?” featurette, you’ll get an extensive who’s who of the many famous faces you’ll see in “That’s My Boy.” Celebrities like Vanilla Ice and Ciara are already well-known members of the cast list, but there’s a whole host of other unexpected cameos from the likes of … well, it’s best if you just watch the movie and let the surprises speak for themselves, isn’t it?
Two other featurettes, “Greetings from Cape Cod” and “Classy Rick’s Bacon and Leggs,” highlight two of the major locations seen in the Sandler/Samberg comedy. Much of the film takes place on the Cape as Samberg’s character Todd (actually named Han Solo, though no one in his immediate life knows his shameful secret) prepares to get married to the beautiful but controlling Jamie (played by Leighton Meester). But an equally important chunk of the movie centers on Bacon and Leggs, a raunchy strip club where Han Solo — sorry, Todd begins finding ways to forgive his father.
“Forgive his father for what,” you ask? In “That’s My Boy,” Sandler plays Donny Berger, a washed-up ’80s celebrity famous for fathering a child with his math teacher while still in his early teens. Donny did a commendable job as a single parent. How can one fault a dad who names their son Han Solo, feeds him nothing but cake and junk food, and allows him to get a New Kids on the Block tattoo that covers his entire back? Yeah, absolutely nothing for young Han to feel resentful over.
“That’s My Boy” hits Blu-ray and DVD on October 16.
