Adam Sandler and Emily Watson in Paul Thomas Anderson's "Punch-Drunk Love" (2002)

Punch-Drunk Love (2002) Directed by Paul Thomas Anderson. Adam Sandler as Barry Egan and Emily Watson as Lena Leonard

Barry: I didn’t ask for a shrink, that must’ve been somebody else. Also, that pudding isn’t mine. Also, I’m wearing a suit today because I had a very important meeting this morning and I… don’t have a crying problem.

  1. I like this film a great deal, Sandler and Anderson should team up again.

  2. I know it’s some kind of heresy to say, but this is one of my all time favorite PTA flicks. I love its small scale oddness and I find Barry to be disturbingly indentifiable.

  3. It is infinitely more rewatchable than his other works. It also helps it’s his funniest feature.

  4. I’m pretty much in the tank for PTA so I could rewatch any of his films any time, but this one and Hard Eight definitely go down the easiest. Maybe because they’re both more intimate? (and shorter?)
