Yuck... give me a break. This is the Get Adam Sandler an Oscar Project. It should obviously never happen. He is awful.

I disagree with you. I saw this movie on Sunday and it was very touching. As someone who lived in D.C. during 9/11, this movie had a profound effect on me. It makes me sad for all of the families that might truly be dealing with this pain. This is not your normal run of the mill Sandler movie with all the comedy, yet there are some light parts. It's a very serious movie, and Adam did an excellent job on this. Don Cheadle was excellent in this as well, both made the characters beleivable.I was not a fan of Punch Drunk Love, but this was so good. I definitely recommend this movie. If you are looking for a Sandler comedy, you will be disappointed.

My review: Adam Sandler becomes emotionally devasteted because his family is killed. He can't get over it and now acts like a little baby. Don Cheadle comes back into his life after several years and helps him recover. I give it 2 stars just for originality.

I've just gotta say in response to your comment that as an actor, I understand the difficulty in leaving one's comfort zone when it comes to performing and Adam Sandler did just this. Believe me, an actor does not leave his/her traditional character to win an Oscar, but instead to convey something which they feel to be important to a different audience in hopes of reaching all of them. I have to completely disagree with you when I say that this movie, while different from all of Adams other works, was truly the best illustration of true human emotion. As someone who lost a friend on 9/11, the pain is close and the character Adam Sandler plays expresses this pain like none other. Maybe next time you should become more familiar with such a pain before condeming Adam Sandler on a topic you obviosly have a lack of knowledge regarding.
