I'm neutral on Dane Cook. This is Dane Cook as a rock star, a heavyweight champion. It's not easy being Dane Cook. His style is intense, and therefore easy to make fun of. He had a meteoric rise, which probably messed up his head a bit. He also had a period where people really hated him. People love him so much here that they are making it difficult for him to discern what's good in his material and what's weak.
