"sometimes seems the offspring of John Stamos and Jerry Lewis"

In the really interesting salon.com review of Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge, author Charles Taylor describes Shah Rukh Khan as above and I cannot resist passing along the idea becuase it's so, so accurate to me. I am watching the movie in bits and pieces but so far I haven't warmed entirely to it, I think because we haven't yet seen much of the non-manic, non-arrogant side of the hero.

None of us got to see much of the non-manic, non-arrogant side of the hero. Just sat through this (between laundry and weekend cleaning) and the highlight is Babu-ji looking like his head might explode.

It's definitely low on my list of likable films. I just don't get the appeal at all.
