SO...was I supposed to feel exhausted and, frustrated after watching this?

Was it the point of the movie makers, to make the audience feel the stress-filled, frustration roller-coaster that Howard's family and associates have when they're around him?

I knew a guy like Howard in college, he was the student-bookie who was horrible at it, truly a schmuck who tried to act like a manic stock-trader. Sandler embodied that stereotype.

I actually really liked it. I agree it fills the viewer with anxiety but even though anxiety isn’t a great feeling I was impressed at how well the movie made me experience an emotion. Movies don’t tend to do that to me.

The only thing that pissed me off was that I rented it on Amazon on Memorial Day, which just so happens to be the exact day that it got released on Netflix. I’ll never rent a movie again without looking online to find out what is being released soon on Netflix. Which I should have been doing already.

I thought it was ok. I had captions on and think maybe that reduced the potential frustration It helped me feel a little more removed, which was probably a good thing.

Agree with what everyone has said about movie and to add that I was a bit surprised about the ending.
Enjoyed it though.

The same directors did ‘Good Time’ and that is a phenomenal film. Uncut Gems was just not nearly as good.

Remarkably abrasive and manic, pretty much disagreeable characters top to bottom. Still, the film did what it set out to do well, I'm guessing a perfect ending.

I started watching it on Netflix last week and turned it off half way through I thought it was so bad.

I think I made it about quarter of the way through. Was absolutely terrible.
