Punch-Drunk Love Reviews

Odd romantic journey for adults and older teens.

While certainly sweet, Love is more compelling as a veiled threat, with Anderson jerking the audience around, wielding abrasive characters and hostile situations in a manner I've come to adore.

It's a romantic comedy on the verge of a nervous breakdown.

Watson is simply radiant with her goofy and beautiful smile, while Sandler's psychotic nice-guy schtick makes for some really great moments.

Paul Thomas Anderson used Sandler for a very specific purpose -to convey a sense of tough-luck awkwardness and smile-masking-frown frustration, and it worked perfectly.

Anderson is simply punch-drunk on the possibilities of cinema, and sophisticated film lovers will be more than willing to go wherever he goes -- yes, even to an Adam Sandler movie.

What really makes this movie so special, apart from the revelation that Adam Sandler can act, is the direction.

Looking Closer

Punch-drunk Love reminds me of why I go to movies in the first place. To be challenged, surprised, transported, inspired, and exhilarated.

Todd Gilchrist

The elements of tragedy aren't life and death issues in this movie, and Anderson's film wisely contains itself to the microcosm of this one man's beleaguered existence.

Unlike any romantic comedy this year, with a vision so wondrously off-kilter that you'll be swept off your feet by it, even if you don't fall in love at first sight.

No cumple con todas las expectativas, pero sigue siendo uno de los directores más originales y talentosos que el cine norteamericano tiene para ofrecer.

Punch Drunk Love feels like a movie Billy Wilder would make if he were he hitting his stride today and able to include liberal, but appropriate, profanity.

Sandler pode até não se revelar um ator versátil, já que repete o mesmo tipo de seus trabalhos anteriores, mas dificilmente algum outro intérprete poderia preencher este filme como ele.

'No es la mejor película de P.T. Anderson, pero si es una mucho mejor opción que la mayoría de las que abundan en la cartelera'

Sandler essentially plays the same socially retarded moron that made him rich, but Anderson strips him of his usual comic props ... He's buried the man-child within and brought all that emotionally stunted melancholy to the surface.
