Slow and not as touching as the subject matter would suggest it to be. Adam Sandler's talent is on full display though.

I plead guilty to having an adverse reaction to anything Adam Sandler is in. That being admitted up front, sitting through this was still a slow torture.

That being admitted up front, sitting through this was still a slow torture. I recognize the good intentions and considerable talents that were part of the production, but it never achieved the well-deserved catharsis of a great tragedy, and even fell into that hollywood cliche of portraying madness as an exalted and "special" state of awareness, by matchmaking Sandler and the psycho woman at the end and wrapping a neat little pink bow around it to suggest that they would be a great couple because of their cumulative madness.

I Think Adam Sandler is a good actor, but he has had some really bad roles. This his best one since Punch Drunk Love.

Everything about the film screams "Like me because I'm about 9/11". The movie would have been a smart, solid addition to a year of good films. Instead it was a silly movie that made me angry. Expand

I really enjoyed the first 2/3rds of the movie, and then it got sloppy. I like the actors. But to me, the 9/11 aspect felt a bit random (I am not sure why it's important in the story that a personal tragedy took place on 9/11), and the I really enjoyed the first 2/3rds of the movie, and then it got sloppy.
