4 Stars

The opening scene of the movie opens with a van violently crashing and an organ being delivered at the end of the driveway to Barry Egan’s business, played by Adam Sandler. It was as if Barry had to choose whether to embrace violence or something else. The organ symbolizes not only fullfillment, but a bit of sanity and love. Although Barry doesn’t completely denounce violence, it is clear that he’s trying to find something else–the audience goes along for the ride. Great film. Also you may want to read Larry O’Brien’s review of the film.
