The writing for this was NOT amazing. Funny how I was making my own list of whether this was a comedy or a tragedy throughtout the film. The actors were great, but I just didn't care and found myself checking my watch more than once. The writing for this was NOT amazing.

The comedy is so lame that you laugh more at the one person laughing in the theater than what actually happens on the screen. With all the other great films out right now, this one is worth waiting for the rental. Expand

This movie is like walking into "target", as opposed to adaptation's walking into a local record store that is actually cool. absolutely embarrassing to watch. it feels like this horrible, predicticably "quirky" movie was written by 40 This movie is like walking into "target", as opposed to adaptation's walking into a local record store that is actually cool. absolutely embarrassing to watch. it feels like this horrible, predicticably "quirky" movie was written by 40 year old advertising people that desperately jump on the "indie-cool-whatever bandwagon a little too late because they are affraid that their teenage daughters will stop finding them cool. i would have much rather seen any other piece of garbage on the multiplex, at least they are upfront about their commercial intents. this movie has artistic pretentions that painfully fall flat on their faces. the people who made this movie assume that we will like it because it references "cool" "weird" movies that did well before, but to whomever directed/produced/wrote this movie: adaptation works not simply beacuse its quirky and "cool looking"; it works because it has heart, charisma, intelligence and a sense of humor. and whats up with maggie gylenhall as the "punk" cookie baker? seriously, flags of our fathers has more of a "punk" "indie" edge than this movie.

I agree completely with tadeo C. below...movies that add quirky plot devices for the sole purpose of upping the intellectual factor really rubs me the wrong way...because, similar to what brett K. says below, this movie at its core is a I agree completely with tadeo C. below...movies that add quirky plot devices for the sole purpose of upping the intellectual factor really rubs me the wrong way...because, similar to what brett K. says below, this movie at its core is a decent chick flick. i guess arrogance is a major pet peeve of mine... on a side note, hoffman puts in a great performance, but like another reviewer mentioned, i really wished i was watching "i heart huckabees" instead... and as far as SNL-comedy-actor-serious-role movies go (or whatever genre you want to call it), adam sandler in punch drunk love is WAY better.
