Not sure why this received so much acclaim. It was stressful to watch. The main character is so annoying.

This movie is SO intense, I'm sure I ended up with a stomach ulcer by the end of it. Sandler absolutely shines in this gritty, but rewarding movie.

I was not sure what to expect. The movie was highly recommended so I decided to give it a shot. The best way to describe Adam Sandler's performance is: he is the exact opposite of Adam Sandler, jajajajaja. Hats off to him, he does a phenomenal job, really sell the role, and is by far the highlight of the film. The reason I didn't give a higher mark is that I felt the plot could have been better, especially the ending, considering some of the themes that were explored throughout the movie the ending could have been deeper and more climactic.
With this film you can say that Adam Sandler is an incredible actor, he will lead you to the life of a gambler, you have many scenes that are going to give you anxiety about how they are in themselves and their ending is something incredible, as the word says.

Adam Sandlers bedste film ift hans skuespilpræstation og meget forfriskende rolle til komikeren. Samtidig er filmen kaotisk, rå og skræmmende. Tempoet er højt og filmen fanger meget godt stemningen af at der snart kommer en afgørende chance for at ændre omstændighederne. En virkelig god film som sidder i én bagefter. Lav flere af den slags, Sandler!

Uncut Gems er en film man virkelig skal være i humør til. For fuck den har et stressende lyd univers og det er jo gjort for at skabe den her hektiske skildring af NEw York og hovedpersonens indre og ydre konflikt.
Adam Sandler spiller bedre end længe men den når ikke Punch Drunk Love. Problemet med uncut gems er at Adams karakter er en person man mister sympati for efter han gang på gang fucker sit liv op.
Men den scene hvor de formår at lave kæmpe suspense fuld opbygning bygget over en celtics kamp fra 2008 er intet mindre end genial. Jer der har set den ved hvad jeg snakker om.
Et lille kip med hatten skal der også gå til Kevin Garnett som slet ikke er dårlig som skuespiller.

Best performance from adam sandler yet, so disappointed that he didn’t get a nomination for this. From the star to finish you root for him to win even though he is not necessarily the best person in the world.

Hard to follow but really shows how people's mental problems can be overlooked and not taken seriously by other people when they are successful.
Seems like there was a lot of hype around this but I really didn’t enjoy it. The story was convoluted and frustrating.
If someone were to play me in the movie of my life, it would be Adam Sandler.
