Very American but kind of interesting.
great script. bit slow, but once you move through it - fantastic, Cage at his best.
One of the most intelligent films I have ever seen. Pure joy.
watched a little of the DVD and then returned it rubbish
What a great bunch of characters! A clever script about script writing. The whole thing is constantly entertaining, even the ridiculousness of the ending in the swamp. Clever is the one word that spring to mind after watching this.
I couldn't watch the end of it - too bizarre. Am not a particular fan of Nicholas Cage and he has made some oddball movies. This one is right up there
I can only watch Cage in an Action Movie and this is far from that. Not my type of movie, but other reviews rate it.
Genius! On so many levels.
well worth a watch, you will never see where this is going.. excellent film
fav movie of the last...15 or so years. watch it!
Hated it. I fell asleep both times I tried watching it. It makes no sense if you dont have patience to follow it and give it a chance. The story doesn't hold my interest at all.
A movie that is self-congratulatory in its cleverness but in the end that's all there is. Cage and Streep put in good performances.
Different and worth watching
Not bad but need to watch uninterupted as to be able to follow.
A highly original and bizarre in-your-face screenplay by Charlie Kaufman who is acted by Nicholas Cage in the film. Performances are excellent especially Chris Cooper as the dentally challenged orchid thief John LaRoche, but as a dark comedy with violence, I didn’t find it tickled my funny bone. The difficulties of being a creative screenwriter and the persona of the characters are believeable until the Kaufman brothers follow Susan (Meryl Streep) to Florida and she turns nasty. I didn’t see this coming and though it satisfied the screenwriter’s aims it just didn’t seem plausible she’d go to that extreme. It’s a cerebral film that often crisscrosses in time and has received many plaudits, but I didn’t much like it. Maybe it needs a second viewing.
A slightly bizarre movie that will not appeal to everyone however I did enjoy it.
I'm not much of a Nicholas Cage fan, and this movie has twice as much of him as any other, but Adaptation is smart, funny and highly watchable.
One of the best movies I have ever seen. Loved it. You will never guess the ending.
Really indulgent and very very boring
A typical American junky abeit excellent performance of the principal actor and actress.
Pity about the panic at the end, in the swamp, but otherwise a very good movie.
Very Smart. The reason it confuses its audience is because it plays with the notion of what an audience wants. Brilliant... And Merryl is always great!
The only movie that reviews itself - excellent - but the parody loses it's mark with me at the end dropping one star.
Not my type of movie! Turned it off halfway through, very annoying!
Sometimes difficult to follow but intriguing nonetheless.
Started off well but fell away towards the end. Just made me want to see Being John Malkovich again - a much better flick.
