Trivia

The clinic that Lucy visits is called the "Callahan Institute" and Dr. Keats (Dan Aykroyd) states that it is "funded out of Sandusky, Ohio by T.B. Callahan, the automotive components tycoon". In Tommy Boy (1995), Aykroyd plays a rival automotive components tycoon that is attempting to purchase Tom (T.B.) Callahan's company. See more »

The fish doctor
2 January 2005 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Not being an Adam Sandler fan, we avoided this film when it was released earlier last year. The premise sounded too much like "Groundhog Day". We took a chance the other night when it was shown on cable, and frankly, we found the movie entertaining. There are more laughs in this than in another, perhaps more pretentious picture, "Punch Drunk Love".

Drew Barrymore and Mr. Sandler had worked together before to surprisingly good results. They show an easy chemistry between them that serves the movie well. The idea of making Adam Sandler an aquarium doctor offers a lot of possibilities; his scenes with the walrus are hilarious.

The supporting cast plays well together. A surprise was Rob Schneider, not one of my favorite actors, either, but in here, under the direction of Peter Segal, he delivers. Sean Astin, as the lisping brother on steroids is quite effective, as well as Blake Clark, as Lucy's father. Dan Aykroyd puts an appearance as the doctor who treats the young woman who has lost her long term memory.

Watch it without any preconceptions, as probably it will surprise you.
