Exec producer Adam Sandler wet his production company’s feet with this appropriately idiotic comedy about a fish-tank cleaner who reluctantly becomes a ”he-bitch” for hire to repair the damage he’s done to a professional lothario’s bungalow. Everyschlumpf Schneider (who cowrote the script) makes a likable enough hero as he boldly woos and teases his stable of too-pathetic ”she-johns,” but that’s not enough to keep the flick’s cardboard characters and waterlogged jokes afloat. None of this will matter, however, to fans of Sandlerland.
