"Widescreen handheld wobblycam... not only is it a horrible film on every level, and misogynist and evil and bad, it is the upchuck movie to end all upchuck movies" - Mark Kermode, BBC Radio 5live

Mention Adam Sandler and Mark will talk about Punch-Drunk Love. Mention Wall E and he will talk about Silent Running. And mention Lars von Trier and you will get a burst of "God is watching you Bess McNeil" in a cod Scottish accent. It's just the way the world works.

The film has intense wobbly-cam that makes the viewer feel sick. Both Mark and the Good Lady Professor Her Indoors hated it - so much so that their strength of feeling was a key moment in cementing their early relationship.
