What does it mean when a movie reviewer describes a movie as "Triumphant"? Seriously? What makes a movie "triumphant"?

It means the movie studio paid for their junket to L.A.

When we find out Adam Sandler really isn't retarded.

The only movie that I can think of that is truly triumphant is Slumdog Millionaire since it almost became a direct to DVD movie that could've been forgotten. It's a fairy tale story for those involved (except for those kids involved in the payment scandal)

I see two possibilities.

1. The story itself is a story of triumph, and the movie make you feel good about this triumph.

2. tri·um·phant (tr-mfnt)
adj.
1. Exulting in success or victory.
2. Victorious; conquering.
3. Archaic Triumphal.
4. Obsolete Magnificent; splendid.

They're using an obsolete yet valid definition of the word.

Bill and Ted's excellent adventure was most triumphant

It means that the movie was the last movie standing in the ring after all of the other movies were tossed out of the ring over the top rope.

No. That just gives them a shot at being triumphant at Wrestlemania.

I thought it would mean he really is retarded and his success is a true triumph?

No, that is just awesome.

And I would classify triumphant as a small movie making it big. Like Clerks. Basically, something that defies all expectations and succeeds. Like if Uwe Boll made a decent movie. Well, that'd be more miraculous than triumphant. Or apocalyptic.

It's a winner.
