  • Andrew Cook

    Favorite movie ever

  • Bel Air Films

    Adaptation (2002) A clever movie poster concept that actually made to the DVD box art.

  • Me

    Adaptation (2002) Nicolas Cage, Meryl Streep - A lovelorn screenwriter turns to his less talented twin brother for help when his efforts to adapt a non-fiction book go nowhere. (M2-2)

  • Sidney Peck

    Adaptation. (2002) -- Spike Jonze once again delivers an almost flawless film. You have to admire Charlie Kaufman's writing as well as the finely crafted performances (but of course!) of Nicolas Cage (double whammy), Meryl Streep and Chris Cooper.

  • Josh Cleary

    Hilarious and mental, a wonderfully original film from Spike Jonze and Charlie Kaufman. Nicholas Cage is as good as I've ever seen him, and Meryl Streep is, as always, fantastic. Not quite 'Eternal Sunshine', but a lot better than 'Being John Malkovich', and definitely worth watching.
