to go see Punch-Drunk Love. Horrible.
Pointless. Incoherent. An extreme disappointment. I can't stand Adam Sandler,
but I like director P.T. Anderson's other efforts. Boogie Nights
is an excellent movie, and Magnolia is just brilliant. This movie
is so bad it doesn't even rate a bad review. After the movie, I heard some
people saying, "So, what was the movie about?" People didn't know whether to
take it as a comedy or a serious film, so that was confusing. Sandler starts
doing his typical overacting, and I'm assuming we're supposed to feel for the
guy, but people were laughing, thinking he was doing some comedy routine. That
combined with the scenes being so long and bland, that you just lose interest.
It gets intriguing at one point, when he starts getting threatened on the phone,
but besides that....it was an awful movie. Wait until this stinkbomb goes to the
$1 theater, and then sneak in. Better yet, don't subject yourself to this thing
or else your grandchildren will hate you.
