Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler in 50 First Dates

"The Beach Boys? How nice of that man to give me a CD that will remind me of all the wonderful times I shared with his daughter. What an asshole!" - Henry Roth, 50 First Dates (2004)

Columbia Pictures, rated PG-13, 99 minutes.

Directed By: Peter Segal

Cast:

Adam Sandler - Henry Roth

Drew Barrymore - Lucy Whitmore

Rob Schneider - Ula

Sean Astin - Doug Whitmore

Lusia Strus - Alexa

Dan Aykroyd - Dr. Keats

Domestic Box Office Gross: $120,776,832

Synopsis: A man with commitment issues falls in love with a woman who has a short term memory problem that has her repeatedly forgetting him the following day.

Fact: The ending of The Sixth Sense is spoiled in this movie.

Trivia: Lucy is reading an awesome book called Still Life of a Woodpecker by Tom Robbins. If you get the chance to read it I highly recommend it. Very funny book.

Movie Mistake: Doug's sunglasses magically disappear when he and Marlin are talking to Henry.

My Take: I have to be honest I'm not the biggest Adam Sandler fan but this is a really good movie. I hate to use the word 'cute' but in a way that's what it is and that's not a bad thing. Sean Astin and Rob Schneider are very funny as well.

I use to like Adam Sandler but grew tired of him doing the same thing in all his movies. But this and "The Wedding Singer" are two of his better ones and to be honest it is a 'cute' movie.

Adam and Drew paired up in this movie pretty well. It was a sappy feel good movie which was a great "watch with the wife" movie. The he/she woman was a bit creepy.
