My friends and I enjoyed the movie, we had a good time laughing and reminiscing the 80's . I'm not a big Sandler fan although I saw Happy Gilmore & Bulletproof on video. But in this one, he's a lot better that I did not regret seeing it in the movie-hall. Admittedly, most of the scenes were predictable, but Sandler and Barrymore were so good they looked lovely together, you would just forgive them for these minor pitfalls. If you are looking for a highly aesthetical-technical film, this isn't the movie for you. But if you just want to have some good laughs with your friends--check this out. Sandler's songs are good--specially the "want to grow old w/ you" song he sang at the plane for Drew."Somebody Kill Me Pls."& "Love Stinks" are really funny.
This movie is a must-see. Meg Ryan is very good, as usual and Nicolas Cage is "angelic". The cinematography is great, so is the musical scoring. The lines/dialogues express the emotions the characters are feeling. It is a different experience altogether and gives you a different high. For people who believe in true love,this movie was made just for you.
There never has been a sitcom that truly pictures life among the singles (twenty-something) as good as this show does. It's not just comedy, it presents the episodes in such a way that one can truly identify with the situations they face so the audience has something to talk about in coffee shops too. The humor is universal. I feel like I'm part of the group every time I watch it because I feel the different emotions they go through. Plus, of course, it is so much fun because it's fast-paced. Every scene and every moment is relative to what is going to happen next so you don't feel like it is dragging you onto nothing. Just like how a sitcom should be. Funny!
This film has presented the actual fears & feelings of young people. Some being caught up in their highschool adventures & never really want to move on, and some being suddenly afraid of the commitment made, or not wanting to make one. The insecurities and emotions are real and dialogues are effective in conveying their emotions and characters. I would recommend you see this film with your highschool friends or those you grew up with.
