Pulling power of Nicholson vs. Repelling power of Sandler
OK. I love Jack Nicholson movies. I loathe Adam Sandler movies. This put me at something of a dilemma, as you can imagine, when I felt like going to the movies this weekend.

Well, as it happens, Adam Sandler is more annoying than in the Wedding Singer, but less annoying than Big Daddy, Little Nicky, and Billy Madison put together. Which is good.

Nicholson is his usual addictive self. Which is also good. He can also pull off the comedy (once you've seen it, just think "Wildebeest!"), which is to be expected (he's not the coolest man in the world for nothing).

Marisa Tomei is very good, as are the cameos of Heather Graham, John C Reilly and Woody Harrelson (all high points). Ex-Mayor Giuliani's (sp?) turn as the standard Rob Schneider "You can do it, Adam!" character is pretty funny too, but since it requires a knowledge of Adam Sandler movies (which I don't have, I hasten to add - I've just read a lot of film magazines!!) to get it, it's not the best joke in the movie.

All in all, it's not as good as your top Nicholson movies like One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest, Batman, A Few Good Men etc, but it's pretty damn good for Sandler (The Wedding Singer and Punch-Drunk Love level at least). Rent it one night - it's not really worth buying.
