User Review

This movie floored me

Rating: 10/10

I'm usually pretty cynical about cheesy movies but this movie absolutely
floored me. Drew Barrymore was phenomenal playing role of Julia
Sullivan.
I've seen the movie at least 30 times by now and her expressions still
make
me cry, they're just so sincere. I don't know how else to put it. As for
Adam Sandler I think that this is his best role yet, he's a real person
in
this movie not just some overgrown immature goofball. On top of
everything
it's a brilliant 80s satire, for me its right up there with American
Psycho.
I understand why someone would have reservations about watching this
movie
but my advice would be to put your cynicism aside for a couple of hours
and
just watch with an uncritical mind. I think you'll be pleasantly
surprised.
