I understand the appeal of Steven Seagal far more than I ever will that of Adam Sandler. I've hated him in his comedies just as much as I have in his dramas. In fact, I've yet to make it through the entirety of Punch Drunk Love even though Paul Thomas Anderson is high on my list of favorite directors. Considering all that, there's obviously no chance that I'll be seeing You Don't Mess with the Zohan.

It's weird--I typically rush out to see every Pixar movie but I'm barely interested in Kung Fu Panda. DreamWorks Animation just seems like they're churning out junior-grade stuff when compared to the magic made at the House of Lasseter. I'm also at the point where I've officially checked out on Angelina Jolie. Sure, she's talented and beautiful and all, but doesn't she just seem sort of...annoying to everyone?
