50 First Dates

0 Love It
Sandler plays Henry Roth, a wacky-but-caring vet at the local sealife park, who enjoys a country-wide reputation as a Don Juan, until his nemesis arrives in the form of cheerful amnesiac Lucy (Barrymore), who's stuck in her own private October 13. What follows is a blatant rip-off from Groundhog Day as the smitten Roth is forced to woo his love afresh each day, at the same time winning over her suspicious fisherman father and steroid-crazy brother. Quite what age group this soft-centred entertainment is aimed at is hard to divine. The sight gags, slapstick and walrus vomit jokes presumably aim for the undemanding young, whereas the foul-mouthed senior citizen and the stereotyped Hawaiian beefcake at the Hukilau beach bar provide cheap shots for adolescents. How either of those demographics will stomach the sickly sentimentalism of the romance is anyone's guess.

I've enjoyed this movie - and I generally despise Adam Sandler's work. It is over the top in every way, but finding that he isn't as evil a person as he wishes to be is a process that would help many people besides Henry Roth. Drew Barrymore is the perfect accident victim with a bruised brain with her little lisp. Blake Clark, Sean Astin, and Rob Schneider give action to what would otherwise become soupy.

I really enjoyed this film. It's a chick flick for sure, and Drew Barrymore is brilliant in it. This is the second film where Drew and Adam have teamed up together (first was The Wedding Date). I would recommend this film.
