Adam Sandler brings the thunder and then some in this movie. All of his awkward mannerisms and little quirks are wholly unique to this one performance, and for that reason I can never disparage Mr. Sandler. He wears the blue suit like a champion, and the scene where he does a little soft-shoe down the grocery aisle is perfect.
As for the technical aspects of the film, cinematographer Robert Elswit is an insane genius. The movement of the camera is at times off putting, but always extremely calculated. Couple the movements of the camera with the almost constant score, and the result is a film with an absolutely insane pace.
Looking at Paul Thomas Anderson's filmography, this is second only to There Will Be Blood.
