ADAM SANDLER TAKES A SERIOUS GAMBLE WITH 'UNCUT GEMS'

A very loud Adam Sandler is louder than ever in UNCUT GEMS Year: 2019
A movie that literally begins deep inside Adam Sandler's ass (during a colonoscopy), UNCUT GEMS has provided Sandler — as a jeweler in debt from reckless gambling — accolades for a different kind of performance...

And while not another goofy Happy Madison production, his "Screaming Guy" routine is nothing new — sans the soft-spoken baby talk before the inevitable Nirvana-like shift from clean to distorted loudness occurs...
Adam Sandler pointing the way in UNCUT GEMS Rating: **
For the most part, GEMS is a gritty New York City arthouse flick that never intentionally settles into one place comfortably; and the frantic, neurotic, fast-talking Sandler has his moments...

The problem is that the directors — throwing in too many characters and an annoying, intrusive score — keep trying to out-frantic their leading man, making it tough if impossible to know what's going on, or why. Unlike the far superior, equally artistic PUNCH-DRUNK LOVE, the man simply gets lost in the shuffle.
