Punch-Drunk Love - Movie Synopsis & Plot
A man addicted to phone sex is chased after by three thugs who want him to pay his bills for the service, and at the same time one of his seven abusive sisters sets him up on a date, only she turns out to be somewhat creepy, and he also is able to win a trip to Hawaii to seek out his dream girl.
The comedian's life can be a short one, especially for those who go the way of slapstick humor. Look at Chevy Chase, Leslie Nielsen, or a name that definitely sticks out among the rest, Paulie Shore. Shore was a man who had a string of hits in the early nineties, but all good things come to an end, especially things involving screechy, annoying comedy. He hasn't been seen since. Then there's Adam Sandler, an SNL alumni who has become one of the most profitable actors in Hollywood, despite being considered one of the worst of them. His acting talent aside (no insult meant here; he is, after all, a comedian at heart), he has the great gift of being funny almost all of the time, especially towards the coveted younger audiences. His string of hits include Happy Gilmore, Billy Madison
and Big Daddy
, each one making more than the last. He was at the top of his game. Read our Punch-Drunk Love movie review »
