I also only like Sandler in small doses (like a once per year -- and once ONLY dang it -- obligatory listen to the Turkey song), but I saw a bit of him him briefly in an apparently serious movie as a guy with some sort of OCD situation... I always meant to look up the movie to see what it was, since I did not catch it all. But then figured it might be a real downer like when Robin Williams played the photomat guy. I rented that one on a weekend for me and the GF at the time based on some input from work saying it was 'an amazing dramatic performance'. Amazingly unpleasant waste of my time, is more like it. I don't always have to find characters likable to enjoy a movie, but at the same time, I don't need to get a 3 hr inside look at a weirded out perv. Why do I need to experience that?
Anyway, am looking forward to "King of Scotland" - I think Forest Whitaker has been great in everything I've seen him in from Color of Money and Platoon to Ridgemont High.
He often shows an odd combo of vulnerability and being sinister at the same time... sort of a tamer Garey Bussey...
