    just watched the movie...

    I am Adam Sandler...(sigh)..wow.


    This was the first movie I've seen where a non-gay character was written about 90% from my personality and composition. I could identify with many situations the characters found themselves in. I really enjoyed the flick.

    Hey, at least you've got a halfway decent character. Here's who I've had people say "wow, that's you!"...

    Nicholas Cage in "Adaptation."

    Jack Black in "High Fidelity"

    Paul Giamatti in "Sideways"

    The only thing I can see that they all have in common is that they're all in some stage of loserdom! :poop:

    If you can identify with him being with the hottest looking woman in the world you are a lucky man indeed !!!!

    Well...that part I can't identify with...but I can appreciate the character's struggles, etc...His desire to give up what he may be 'entitled to' to do 'the right thing'.

    oh! naw...nothing to 'minish' at all...was just neat to see a character written pretty close to how I am...and he wasn't a baffoon...or gay.

    Been thinking of renting this. Don't see many movies in the theater. Nice to hear something about it.

    My husband and I rented this last night. It was really good! I was glad to see they didn't go through with the affair. So many movies have you rooting for the infidelity (Hope this doesn't spoil it for anyone!). I loved the way his character was so involved/supportive of his daughter. It made me want to cry!

    My husband liked it, too, which shocked me. It was a lot more of a "chick flick" than Sandler usually does. I usually rent those for myself to watch in intervals during the day, just to spare my poor husband. But he actually liked the movie. Now we have to see "Ocean's Twelve" for him.
