Before he was on the up and up as Jughead Jones on The CW's hit TV show Riverdale, and even before he was sailing the seas or terrorizing a hotel owner, Cole Sprouse split a role with his twin, Dylan, in Big Daddy. Adam Sandler played the star role and he was supported by a comedy star studded ensemble - like former The Daily Show host Jon Stewart, Knocked Up's Leslie Mann, Saturday Night Live's Rob Schneider, and.. well, everything's Steve Buscemi, just to name a few.
Even though it was released in 1999, this film has aged incredibly well. Nearly a decade after its release, there are still new people going out of their way to watch it every day, and people of all ages who are able to quote it from memory!
Why is it so popular? I'm not really sure, but I do remember seeing it on TV a lot when I was home sick from school, at 12 o'clock on a Wednesday afternoon, so maybe that's got something to do with it. Whether you know it by heart because it was all that you had available or because you made a point to watch it enough to memorize it doesn't matter, though - what does matter is that you definitely don't know it well enough to pass this quiz!
1What is the main character’s first name?
This guy is a 32 year old college graduate, with little to no ambition or work ethic. He’s a funny dude, and he’s very nice. He has a smokin’ hot girlfriend named Vanessa. He lives with a roommate that’s an old college buddy, but he recently got engaged. He also has a job, even though it’s not a great one, so gets by - but he’s not living up to his potential and everyone knows it, including him. His last name is Koufax, but what is his first name?
2What is Sonny's roommate's name?
Most college graduates aren’t tripping over themselves to stay roommates with someone they went to school with, and Sonny’s roommate situation isn’t all that different. The two of them are friends, of course, but this guy recently got engaged to Corrine, a podiatrist, and he’s looking to branch out on his own. He just left for a business trip in Japan when the kid shows up, leaving Sonny to deal with it on his own. What is his first name?
3What does Sonny have a degree in?
In spite of his laziness and total lack of ambition, Sonny graduated from Syracuse University with a degree. He hasn’t taken the final steps he’d have to take in order to actually make a career out of it, unfortunately, but still! Graduating from college is no small feat! He’s following in the footsteps of his father, a man who’s obviously not very happy with the way he’s using his shiny, expensive college education. What did Sonny get his degree in?
4Where does Sonny work?
Okay, so, Sonny has a job that doesn’t pay the greatest, but that’s okay because it doesn’t work him the hardest. Fair exchange, right? He works a couple of days a week for just a couple of hours each shift, and it’s a fairly simple job that allows him to sit down - although people aren’t always happy to see him, so sometimes he has less than pleasant interactions. Once the kid shows up, he takes him to work with him. Where does he work?
