It says something that Adam Sandler
returned to recording comedy albums after he became a superstar, earning 20 million dollars per movie. Perhaps the records gave Sandler
the opportunity to explore his well-documented vulgar side, something that he couldn't really do in Big Daddy, the movie that appeared three months before his fourth album, Stan and Judy's Kid
. Then again, Stan and Judy's Kid
isn't all that vulgar, at least compared to his previous efforts. Sure, there are the predictable profanities, smutty jokes, and the like, but those are balanced by absurdity and deliberately annoying character sketches like the ridiculous "Whitey." These sketches alternate with songs, such as the hip-hop parody "Dee Wee (My Friend the Massive Idiot") and the crowd-pleasing "Chanukah Song, Pt. II."
