PUNCH DRUNK LOVE The 2002 “Should I laugh at that” Comedy from director Paul Thomas Anderson staring Adam Sandler, Emily Watson, Philip Seymour Hoffman and “Chloe” from 24… Ok, the always interesting Mary Lynn Rajskub. This dark turn centers around Barry Egan (Adam Sandler), a socially impaired owner of a small business distributing novelty toilet plungers in the San Fernando Valley. Dominated by seven sisters, and constantly negotiating his own manhood, he is unlikely to find romance unless romance finds him. In an attempt to resolve his loneliness, Barry contacts a phone sex operator who, in turn threatens him with blackmail. The operator sends some thugs on a mission from Utah to California, to follow, scare, and extort Poor Barry, making him unhinged and desperate – that is, until a new door opens in his life. One of his sisters fixes him up with Lena (Emily Watson), a lovely yet quirky young English woman who makes his emotions go haywire – fluctuating between lust, self-doubt, and uncontrollable rage! Nonetheless, Barry will embark upon whatever adventure it takes, just to have a shot at true romance – not to mention a STUNNING amount of pudding… This and our “Top 3 Emotional Breakdowns” in film.
