The Meyerowitz Stories Reviews

Adam Sandler has become an easy punching bag as he continues to make awful to mediocre comedies to fuel not just his career, but also the careers of his less talented comedian friends. But every now and then, Sandler reminds us that he can be a really good actor when taking roles in films like Punch-Drunk Love, Reign Over Me, Spanglish and to some extent, Funny People.
