Barry Egan is a small business owner with seven sisters whose abuse has kept him alone and unable to fall in love. When a harmonium and a mysterious woman enter his life, his romantic journey begins.
Comedy Drama - I believe average moviegoers will agree with me that this is a very
strange story. I seriously doubt that Adam Sandler fans will enjoy
this movie. It's about a strange man and his strange life. I will
say that it keeps you wondering what could happen next but what
happen usually isn't all that interesting.
Adam Sandler MR. DEEDS, LITTLE NICKY, BIG DADDY, THE WATERBOY Emily Watson RED DRAGON, ANGELA'S ASHES, HILARY AND JACKIE Philip Seymour Hoffman Luis Guzman TRAFFIC, THE LIMEY Dir/Prod/Wri: Paul Thomas Anderson MAGNOLIA
PROFANITY: 31 F-words (2 preceded by mother), 3 S-words, 3 GD's, just a couple others. SEX/NUDITY: One phone conversation is very sexually graphic. VIOLENCE: Some gunplay and threats. Nothing graphic. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: None ACTION: None COMEDY: Only a couple of mildly funny comments.
OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Movies like this are where we really keep you from wasting your time and money. The critics are all saying to see this movie, it's great. Well these opinions tell a different story. Some did enjoy it, but many hated it.
If your taste in movies runs close to that of critics then you will probably enjoy "Punch-Drunk Love' as much as the critics did. Everyone else should avoid this movie and that includes Adam Sandler fans.
Cinema Review Prediction: (before moviegoer opinions are collected)
Caution: This is NOT a movie for Adam Sandler fans! It is a very strange story about a very strange man doing very strange things. It's more of a dark comedy and it's very, very slow and not very entertaining. If your taste in movies runs close to that of critics than you will likely feel this movie is worth seeing. Everyone else will likely be very disappointed.
