Wait a minute, Adam Sandler can actually act! Who Knew?
His last compelling performance was in Punch-Drunk Love, which dates back to 2002. After an infinite list of miserable films, Grown Ups and the sequel, Jack and Jill (The Worst Comedy Movie Ever Made) and The Ridiculous 6, I had forgotten the man's talent.
This movie is not for everyone and I think that's because people don't understand it. The focus here is a dysfunctional family and their relationship with each other. The Meyerowitz Stories' requires empathy, we don't get it all delivered. You need some intelligence to understand the movie's humor. If you only love action and superhero movies you will say that this movie is boring and bad, which is sad. It is a pleasure to hear Baumbach's fine dialogue being performed with great enthusiasm.
Harold is an illegitimate narcissistic artistic fool with giant minority complexes. He does not want to recognize that his works may not be as unique as he himself believes.
It was ok, not as amazing as so called critics are wanking on about.
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
