    Very good performances but the best way I can describe it is “loud”.

    Good movie. Movie might be a tad overrated as indicated above but performances were not.

    I’ve seen worse movies but haven’t seen a more annoying movie since 16 Blocks.

    Wow, I was looking forward to this one, but seeing these ASFN* reviews I may have to pass.

    Already only $5 on iTunes for purchase. Now that's a fall from grace after all that burbling oscar buzz I was hearing on podcasts.

    Yeah, and a bit exhausting. I'm not sure what all the oscar buzz was about, perhaps because Sandler actually acted in this one. Still a solid film though.

    Kevin Garnett was excellent. I didn't know this until now, but he was also an extra in the '94 film Blue Chips along with Jim Caviezel.
