Synopsis:
Struggling to cope with his erratic temper, novelty-toilet-plunger salesman Barry Egan (Adam Sandler) spends his days collecting frequent-flier-mile coupons and dodging the insults of his seven sisters. The promise of a new life emerges when Barry inadvertently attracts the affection of a mysterious woman named Lena (Emily Watson), but their budding relationship is threatened when he falls prey to the swindling operator of a phone sex line and her deranged boss (played with maniacal brio by Philip Seymour Hoffman).

Remarkable - Punch-Drunk Love review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
03/01/2010

Paul Thomas Anderson gives us another memorable and original tale in the shape of Punch Drunk Love. Adam Sandler and Emily Watson are both terrific and it shows just how lazy Sandler is with his choice of roles nowadays. You never know where this film is heading and it leaves you wanting to know more. Not only the main characters but also his sisters, the business and his telephone buddies. All of these could warrant a longer cut but it seems Anderson cut back from the epic Vanilla Sky into a more modest running time for this project. It's not his greatest film but even then Punch Drunk Love surpasses many other films today and the soundtrack is excellent as well.
