Adam Sandler bids to expand his range -- into niceness, romanticness, sweetness, dullness. (Actually, he had reached dullness before, but from another direction.) His bitterness over his broken heart permits him an occasional lapse, too, into more familiar Sandlerisms. There's a well-conceived screen moment when he misinterprets the mood of his inamorata through a second-storey window, but it's spoiled a moment later when it's spelled out verbally for the benefit of the rubes. The setting is the mid-Eighties, and the nostalgia is of blizzardy intensity. With Drew Barrymore, Christine Taylor, Steve Buscemi, Billy Idol; directed by Frank Coraci. (1998) — Duncan Shepherd
