Stressful! Incredibly stressful!
You are just bombarded by constant bad stuff hitting Howard Ratner (played by Adam Sandler).

The acting by Adam Sandler was most impressive. He was very convincing and in no way a silly comedy goof, which he became known for. Well done!

The stress level was very impressive and also slightly awful to watch. The writing and cutting really has an amazing effect. I had a hard time calming down after watching the movie.


The movie has a very exciting build up for the first 30 mins. Then excitement flattens out for approx. 30 mins., where everything is just a repeat of misfortutane events, and then it suddenly drops. The ending was extremely stupid in my opinion. You are left with a feeling of having wasted your time watching everything that led up to this… nothing.

I will not be seeing this movie  again, and I would not recommend it unless you have a special interest in Adam Sandler.
