Sandler and Samberg in a Red Band 'That's My Boy' Trailer

Now that I've seen, with my own two reasonably reliable eyes, an Adam Sandler character taking a rip from a bong held by Vanilla Ice, the sight seems strangely inevitable, like it's the culmination of two decades of strange cameos in Sandler movies.  You too can see this sight and many others in the new red band trailer for That's My Boy, which was formerly titled I Hate You, Dad

The story, in a nutshell, follows Sandler's character as he attempts to get in the good graces of his son, played by SNL and The Lonely Island's Andy Samberg, on the eve of his progeny's wedding.  Why?  Because the father's estranged son is a wildly successful hedge-fund manager and the deadbeat dad owes the IRS almost $50,000 to avoid a prison sentence.

The trailer, which has to be considered not safe for work based on abundant bad language and some glimpses of a rather full-figured stripped, premiered today at MTV.  Give it a watch then please confirm that, based on his accent, Sandler is essentially playing Ben Affleck's character in Good Will Hunting.

Last year's Jack and Jill joined the less overtly comedic 2009 dramedy Funny People as a rare Adam Sandler movie to gross under $100 million domestically, and it did so to critical evisceration.  For That's My Boy, the star and producer is teaming up with some new directors.  Instead of his frequent collaborator Dennis Dugan, the Sand-man works here with Sean Anders and Jim Morris, the directorial duo behind Sex Drive and who also wrote last year's Mr. Popper's Penguins.

With Sandler and Samberg leading the cast, there's an eclectic group of supporting players.  They include Leighton Meester, Will Forte, Susan Sarandon, James Caan, Ian Ziering, and Eva Amurri Martino.

That's My Boy hits theaters on June 15th.
