    He has from time to time shown the ability to be funny in different ways. For example, The Week Of was pretty good. There is a lot of silliness in it, but it was certainly worth a watch. Also there was... okay, I got nothin' else.

    He was spectacular for a few years and then his schtick was used up.

    The sad thing is that for a brief time, he demonstrated an ability as a dramatic actor. "Reign Over Me" was a terrific performance. There was a window where "Adam Sandler, the serious actor" was a real thing, and then he went right back to "I want to make straight to video dumb comedies with my friends."

    I Don't Know How She Does It. Kelsey Grammer should have stuck to making more Frasier episodes. Or at least this movie was the wrong vehicle for trying to break the mold.

    As an employee at a Boston-based financial firm, Kate Reddy (Sarah Jessica Parker) struggles daily to balance the demands of her high-powered career with the needs of her husband (Greg Kinnear) and children. When she gets an account that requires frequent trips to New York and her husband gets a new job, Kate finds herself spread even thinner. Complicating Kate's life even more is new business associate Jack Abelhammer (Pierce Brosnan), who throws temptation into the mix.

    4/10

    Punch-Drunk Love! That was a damn masterpiece. He was amazing in that. He clearly has the ability to act.
