Lucas Vidal’s review published on Letterboxd:
what a nice film! this is so simplistic and yet so interesting!!
the whole movie is a lot of fun, the characters are really adorable, there’s great cinematography (those hawaii scenes!!!), the score is awesome (those drums worked PERFECTLY on the fast-paced and “action” scenes)…
and, of course, there’s adam sandler. it actually makes me mad to know that he CAN act. REALLY WELL, as a matter of fact! and yet, this is probably the only serious work we’ll ever see of his.
punch-drunk is not much of a movie. it’s fun, warm, somewhat authentic… but not incredible in any sense. just a great way of spending your time if you have 1h30 available
