    A highly enjoyable failure, a quandary that can't resolve itself.
  2. 100
    In a larger sense, Adaptation is a movie about the simple act of enjoying life -- of really embracing it -- without constantly worrying about what others think.
  3. This is like a Ferris wheel--the ride's enjoyable but you've gone nowhere once it's over.
