Know What You’re In For Before You See This
Boy, did this movie disappoint a lot of people…..but not me. The “disappointed” were the Adam Sandler fans who expected another “Happy Gilmore”-type character, the kind of goofball the comedian has built a career on portraying. Instead, they got a dark comedy/drama that was anything but the typical Sandler fare. They also got a weird story.
I had the advantage of knowing what to expect, and that helped a lot. Also, I guess I’ve watched too many movies because I am beginning to like some of these oddball films….and this one certainly qualifies as “odd.” I thought the mixture of dark humor, drama, suspense and romance all made for a fascinating film. You just never knew what was coming next, something funny or something horrifying. This is definitely something different and I suspect one of those movies you’ll either really like or really hate.
I supposed it helped I like Emily Watson, who is the female love interest in here. No one that nice would keep seeing a wacko like Sandler’s character in here, but that’s the movies for you. In most cases, you have to suspend your belief.
The storyline, whether pleasant or very unpleasant, got me involved and the camera-work in here was interesting, too. In summary, it’s a curiosity piece for those who like something different. Just don’t expect a happy, hilarious Happy Gilmore.
To say this film was strange would be the biggest understatement. The storyline is almost non-existent. It seemed more like a catalogue of extremely random events happening to a highly unlikeable character. This is supposedly great filming technique and “arty” but a lot of it seemed just like bad (and often jerky) filming to me. There are parts of the film where literally nothing happens eg. when Egan is just waiting for the phone to ring. The sound track is weird and jarring – if the sound track had been different it might have been more bearable to watch. In real life Lena would have dumped Egan on the first date (or at least asked him why they were being asked to leave the restaurant!!). And what was the significance of the harmonium?? Why did he take it to Lena’s flat and then the next minute he was playing it in his office again??? If you want a thought-provoking or inspiring film, or at least something mildly entertaining, THIS IS NOT A GOOD FILM!!! In short, this film is boring, weird, has a highly irritating sound track, the characters lack depth, random things happen for seemingly no reason and there is no plot.
