Punch-Drunk Love

Monday, September 27, 2010

Punch-Drunk Love, a dark romantic comedy starring Adam Sandler, is not your average light-hearted movie. Directed by Paul Thomas Anderson, this movie contains a lot of complex themes and it definitely keeps you on the edge of the seat. At first, I thought it was a bit strange and had an overload of chaos, but it slowly grew on me. This film is a totally different tone from the usual knee-slapping comedies Adam regularly stars in. It was released in 2002.

A more descriptive sypnosis: "Barry Egan (Adam Sandler) -- a bathroom supply salesman prone to paroxysms of destructive rage -- finds his life refreshed when he meets Lena Leonard (Emily Watson), who falls in unconditional love with him. Meanwhile, Egan tries to escape constant harassment from his seven sisters as well as three thugs who have implicated him in a phone sex extortion scam. Paul Thomas Anderson (Boogie Nights, There Will Be Blood) writes and directs."
Below is a trailer of the movie:

I tend to avoid Adam Sandler like the plague, maybe i should give this a go as he's breaking away from the usual role he plays. xxx
