- 1 hr 35 min
Punch Drunk Love is a dramatic romantic semi-comedy about a neurotic small business owner looking for love but instead finding trouble in all the wrong places. Adam Sandler stars as the hapless leading man, Barry Egan, with a seven overbearing sisters who show him no mercy. His loneliness leads him to call a phone-sex service which in turn blackmails him just as he thinks he’s found the one in the quirky Lena (Emily Watson). The two create a beautiful relationship with just enough awkwardness involved. The extortion storyline is led by Philip Seymour Hoffman who portrays the conniving porn-line owner moonlighting as a mattress salesman. Added to Sandler’s romantic hi-jinx is his quest to cheat a food company into awarding him lifetime frequent flier miles by purchasing an unimaginable number of pudding packs. The dark film features unique cinematography in varying locations from Director/Writer Paul Thomas Anderson as well as supporting performances from Luis Guzman and Mary Lynn Rajskub. Punch Drunk Love is an offbeat film about love, anger, insecurity and pudding.
