Happy Madison Productions, which is owned by actor Adam Sandler, has produced the film, therefore the comic style of the film was predicted even before the trailer was published. The story’s premise revolves around Payton and his distant connection with his son, a link that will be improved owing to the events that lead the protagonist to become the assistant coach of his son’s sixth-grade football team.
