The Adaptation is the least cynical movie I've ever seen. Each shot is a moment of wonder and discovery.

Adaptation is a treasure of comedy, marvel, and accomplishment that fails to surface much these days, and I cheer Zala, Strompolos, and Lamb's determination to keep their efforts afloat

Raiders of the Lost Ark: The Adaptation is a loving tribute to the original film.

[T]he unintentionally hilarious moments are the real gold, such as when a pudgy teen Strompolos says, "It's not the years, honey...it's the mileage."

The Adaptation the sort of film, like the one which inspired it, that easily worms it's way into your heart. The love isn't just on the screen, it's all around.

You forget you're watching a skillful teenage re-enactment and start seeing it simply as Raiders of the Lost Ark, with different faces, and seen through fresh eyes.
