This Adam Sandler movie is not perfect or funny. Not for kids

I am a huge fan of Adam Sandler but this one doesn't have any humor. This one involves phone sex. and this one is not funny.

A Masterpiece in its Own Right

For everyone saying this movie isn't funny as much of Adam Sandler's work is, this movie isn't one that falls under the category of comedy. Paul Thomas Anderson's movies all possess the same serious, sometimes quirky humor, and I believe in this movie Sandler turns in one of the best performances of his career. It's a great look into the mind of a good man, whose mind is filled with rage, and the introduction of love into his life is a liberation, something for him to fight for. It's a beautiful movie, and although the phone sex is pretty graphic, it's perfectly fine for young, mature teens.

Excellent change-of-pace for Adam Sandler; great movie too

Before watching this film, DO NOT expect an Adam Sandler movie like Happy Gilmore and Billy Madison. The film is advertised as a comedy, but it is a drama all the way. That being said, it is a great film. Sandler plays a lonely man who owns a warehouse of novelty products and suffers from anger problems. His performance is outstanding, as are supporting performances by Emily Watson and Philip Seymour Hoffman. Sex: No onscreen sex or nudity, but a major subplot involves a phone sex hotline and some graphic dialogue is involved. Violence: No notable violence. Sandler's character breaks a few windows. A few people are punched. A scene involves an attempted kidnapping. Language: Infrequent strong language. One scene in which Philip Seymour Hoffman's character uses the word f*** frequently. Substance Abuse: Little to none. Characters drink alcohol in a restaurant. Intensity: The film is a drama. Sensitive audience members may feel sad for the protagonist. The only scenes parents should be cautious of are the scenes involving Hoffman and the hotline.
