Blended – 2014

“After a bad blind date, a man and woman find themselves stuck together at a resort for families, where their attraction grows as their respective kids benefit from the burgeoning relationship.”

Another Adam Sandler film that sounds stupid and is stupid, but you know what it was actually really quite amusing. I don’t know if it’s spending too much time with kids working in a school or just the type of mood I happened to be in at the time of watching but I found it hilarious. As with all Adam Sandler films it had its fair share of cheesy and cringe-worthy jokes but overall it was a good feel-good film.

Adam Sandler was his usual self but more his usual self from the late 90’s and early 2000’s when people didn’t hate him so much. Drew Barrymore is still hot and still a pretty good actress. She makes a good on screen Milf I think that’s the best way to describe her now. All the kids were hilarious and the cameo’s from numerous comic actors were all timed perfectly and all of it together just made a good, funny, feel-good family film.

There was nothing especially funny about it and nothing particularly special about it but it made me laugh more than it made me cringe and want to put a different film on so I’d say that was a success for a rom-com in the last several years. It’s 6.5 rating on IMDb is actually pretty good as well because comedy films don’t often do well on there never mind Adam Sandler films so clearly a few people enjoyed it as I did. Although it was a PG-13/12A rating it would still be funny to older teenagers and people like me in their 20’s who try their best to feel like they’re in their late teens. So apologies to all Adam Sandler haters (people who think they’re professional film critics because they hate Adam Sandler and have sat through all of Pulp Fiction) but this was a funny film and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to laugh or needs cheering up.
