For anyone who thinks they know the limits of Adam Sandler’s talents, this moving motion picture will shatter your conception of the man best known for such comedies as Happy Gilmore, Click and a host of others. Here, he shines as a young man who suffers the devastating loss of his family in the September 11th attacks. Unable to come to grips with the overwhelming sense of grief, he keeps running from it. But, in one of life’s strange and wonderful miracles, he reconnects with his former college roommate (Don Cheadle). Rekindling that friendship proves to be the most important step he will take on his road to recovery. A touching portrait of the healing power of friendship.

Rotten: Without Sandler, Reign Over Me would be a gloopy, post-9/11 love-in, making cavalier use of a fine but helpless cast.-Andrew Pulver, Guardian [UK], April 20, 2007
Rotten: It's as if 9/11 was simply coopted to bring an extra weight to a script that couldn't be trusted to deliver on its own.-Ian Johns, Times [UK], April 20, 2007
Rotten: A self-indulgent addition to American cinema's post-9/11 cinema, Reign Over Me sees Sandler over-reaching himself in a straight-faced role.-Jamie Russell, Film4, April 20, 2007
Fresh: Cheadle's finest hour and proof that Sandler can act. Funny, sad and flawed - like its characters.-Helen OHara, Empire Magazine, April 20, 2007
