50 First Dates (2004)



Critic Consensus: Gross-out humor overwhelms the easy chemistry between Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore, who bring some energy and yucks to this tale of a girl with short-term memory loss and the guy who tries to get her to love him.

Quite what age group this soft-centered entertainment is aimed at is hard to divine.

...has an unexpected emotional undertow and enough hard-won laughs to make it succeed.

A surprisingly good film with a sweet story...

Cinema Crazed

Within the witlessness and crudeness is a touching (or mawkish, depending on your perspective) romantic comedy trying to get out.

Full Review… | May 29, 2008

The moments that Sandler and Barrymore can steal together are golden.

Full Review… | July 23, 2007

Though the set-up in this light romantic comedy is a bit strained, once you get into the main interaction with the two stars you get both the laughs and the emotion that you hope for in a film like this.

Audience Reviews for 50 First Dates

A comedy with an interesting plot but predictable laughter that still catches you no matter how many times you view the film. Sandler and Barrymore's second on-screen duo builds their chemistry even bigger and higher than ever. 4/5

Its an entertaining and sweet movie, but it isnt the best at trying to capture the real intensity of emotions that could have been portrayed across to the audience an okay movie which is vaguely amusing.
