What if Punch-Drunk Love happens to come on HBO? Isn't HBO a television program - or as you put it, "idiot box" - that plays whatever we find fitting? Please do not succumb to caustic behavior; television is great and always has been.

Yeah, I've been a 24 addict for the last three years... and... I... can't...stop..

I agree. I just saw this movie, and I must admit I have a fondness for it, and was entertained throughout. But it was much too odd and unrealistic to have any real emotion for it afterward. There is no way anyone would stay with Sandler's character, I couldn't figure out what she saw in him, and it's the first romantic comedy I've seen and thought immediately after "that relationship isn't going to last". Hoffman's character was incredibly immature, and the "that's that" scene. What was that? There was so much to like about the movie, such as Sandler's character, I really felt for him. But I did not think he was ready for a relationship by the end of the movie, he was still too broken. And his girlfriend, has to have been an idiot for ignoring all the signs of a boyfriend who may be a few screws loose.

If you want to see the movie, go ahead. I felt it tried too hard to be both realistic and artsy at the same time, and by the end leaves you just confused as to what you saw. But I'll say this, there's rarely a dull moment in the movie, it starts really well but gets worse as the movie moves along. Sandler's character is the only reason to watch, everyone else is either cruel or idiotic.

You're correct, Mr. Kimmel. I'll never trust you again.
