ADAM SANDLER, SERIOUS ACTOR?

ADAM SANDLER, SERIOUS ACTOR?: I guess I missed the news from the Cannes Film Festival in the Memorial Day lull. Blogger Leo Le Brun is my best source for news from France, and he reports that Paul Thomas Anderson (Boogie Nights, Magnolia) snagged Best Director for his newest, Punch-Drunk Love, which stars, yes, Adam Sandler. I'm really having trouble picturing the Waterboy pulling off Anderson-caliber acting. We'll have to wait until next fall to see this.
