I doubt any amount of description could
prepare a viewer for this film, because there's never been anything
quite like it before.
It's more a singular character study and
shows how a woman can love a person just as he is.
This movie has a strange, unusual visual
feel about it, making for a great creative film.
I am not an Adam Sandler fan, but I am
a fan of Paul Thomas Anderson, the same guy who brought us Boogie
Nights and Magnolia. He is the master of character
development, but not this time.
Here, we enter into the middle of a man's
nervous breakdown, with no explanation of how he got there, and
if you think you'll know by the end, you don't know Paul Thomas
Weird, as well as demented, this movie
deals with rage, romance, phone sex, frequent-flier miles, sibling
rivalry, and the pitfalls of wearing a tie to work.
Not for everyone, but just strange enough
is a picture about a shy, lonely bachelor who owns a warehouse
that produces decorative toilet plungers.
The star is isolated and dispirited by
his seven controlling sisters, whose years of pestering have
reduced him to a weirdo.
The movie manages to be both heart-breaking
and happy, while managing to look like nothing you've ever seen.
It's unpredictable, oddball, adult entertainment.
