It looks to be pretty good. Kinda long at 140 minutes though.

wow 3 hours?:eek3:

I dont mind long movies at all, but 3 hours seems like the ending will be a drag. Sandler isn't as funny as he use to be but it does have alot of funny people in it.

Since when does 140 Minutes=3 hrs.

I thought an hour was 60 minutes. So this appears to be 2 hrs and 20 minutes or maybe my math is wrong.

The movie was kinda long. It was a serious movie that had its sad and funny moments. Not bad. Don't go expectin' a really funny movie, its got some super cereal moments.

Well, there are a bunch of comedians in that movie and it does get funny. But it's not a movie that has you laughing all the time. In short the movie is about the life of comedians.

Not at all what I was expecting. The only character that was developed fully was Eric Bana's. And he was only in the movie for about 20 minutes.

Long movie. With some funny parts. But I'd definitely wait to rent.

Im sorry I thought this movie SUCKEDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD.

For having that many funny actors, it barely had its few funny parts, and the movie dragggged on forever, had a boring ending and not much of a plot.

Waste of my $19 imo.

Again, the biggest issue I had with it, was there was no resolution. No character was fully developed.

Adam Sandler was a rich douchebag and he was told he was going to die. So he started getting ready for the inevitable and started to reflect on what he would have changed if he had more time. Then the doctor told him he beat the disease and would live. But Sandler remained a fucking prick. He never changed.

Agreed.

That was the point. His character doesn't change. He has a near death experience and he still stayed an asshole.

I actually like the movie. It wasn't amazing, but a 7/10 for me. No, it's not a typical comedy. Actually, I'd probably call this movie a drama before I call it a comedy. Sandler did some great acting in it as well.

I think the movie bordered on dark comedy in parts, and it dragged balls when they got to San Francisco. Good overall movie, but I had a problem with the pacing of it.

Agreed. The pacing was odd.

Saw it and thought it was funny, then halfway it started to get boring and just seemed like it was never going to end.

Saw it last night. I thought it was a good movie but I expected it to be funnier. Still had its funny moments. 7/10 like replica said, it's good but not great.

Actually I think the reason I thought it was got boring is bc I was drunk when I went to go see it and I was laughing at every scene, but then I started getting sleepy (I saw a late show) and was ready to go to bed lol.

I saw the Orphan prett buzzed when I went on saturday. I noticed as long as you have alcohol to keep drinking you'll stay up. My friend didn't want a beer at the movies and he fell asleep about halfway through lol

Hmm, drinking at the movies. Maybe that's the trick....

It was ok. I'd probably wait for the dvd. I liked funny people more.

I honestly thought Eric Bana's character was probably the funniest. Not what I was hoping for the movie. I think maybe Judd Apatow is getting carried away and pulling movies out of his ass left and right. I think he needs to take some time and let his ideas simmer...

Maybe this article will help explain the themes of the movie better.

I agree that it isn't an amazing movie, but I think some people are viewing it and rating it based on a genre it isn't in. If that makes sense. The title of the movie in its self, is sort of telling of the "humor" the movie expresses.

movie should not have been labeled as a comedy. It was more like a drama. Few funny moments, which really weren't all that much lol, more like a chuckle or too. It is a deffinite rent it or wait for it to come out on broadcast tv. Was a wast of money and time IMHO. I thought "I love you man" was more funnier.

Wasn't as good as I thought it would have been, storyline kinda got fucked towards the end there. Oh well its a good thing I didn't pay to see it :ninja:
