The Brave One was so underrated.

Aren't you being a bit contrarian by ranking 'Chuck and Larry' so high? I found the structure interesting - those who were laughing most heartily at the easy "fag" jokes of the first half had the rug pulled out from under them via the second half's homophilia - but the whole enterprise was a laugh-deprived, plodding affair. Not to mention that Sandler's soul projects a burnt-out quality on screen anymore, and Jessica Biel is a body in search of a presence. I support its intent and message, but pleasurable it was not.

Isnt this a bit too much like Armond's? I mean, isnt Armond White's whole "message" about how too many critics follow the crowd? It seems to me you're doing that same thing. I'm sure even Armond doesn't think hes right all the time. Where are YOUR opinions? Anyways, I'm probably wrong. And I dont mean to sound like an asshole. I apologize if I did.
