Barry (played by Sandler) has some social and psychological issues, and trouble controlling his anger. Dominated by 7 sisters, he is isolated and lonely. He uses the services of a phone sex line, which turns out to be a hoax company and who set out to scam him. While he is dodging their goons, Barry meets Lena.

Lena may be the only one who can understand Barry, and she may be the only one to save him from himself.

The sound affects in this movie are finely sculptured around the action, at times haunting, at times jocular, at times fantastical and futuristic. This is an unusual film, superbly driven by Watson and Sandler. Great little find for the rom com genre.
