film_lies101's rating of the film Observe and Report

Never as dark as some people would have you believe, unless your litmus of comedy comes from the Apatow/Ferrell axis. I really don't get the 'Taxi Driver' comparisons, if anything it is a dumbed down version of 'Punch-Drunk Love' with the same sort of aspirations by the filmmaker. Ultimately, it has neither the depth, humor, humanity, or disturbing undercurrents.
