A surprisingly good film with a sweet story...

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

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

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.

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

I had hard time believing that someone as shallow as Henry would all of the sudden drop everything in his life for this girl, but the film is surprisingly winning.

It's nearly a profound concept, but only nearly. Remember that 50 First Dates is an Adam Sandler movie: there are limits.

...one mediocre Valentine's Day gift, with all the panache of grocery store chocolate.

u mayor logro es sacar a Adam Sandler de sus papeles de neurótico, para demostrarnos que también puede interpretar otros roles.

The tone is haphazard and some gags are recycled, but the chemistry between the two stars and an ending that stays true to the story make it a worthwhile rental.

Com exceção de Embriagado de Amor, este é o primeiro filme de Sandler que não ofende a inteligência do espectador - e também o primeiro a realmente conseguir fazer rir.

With Sandler restrained and Barrymore sweetness incarnate, 50 First Dates compensates for its bitty plot and half-worked gags with a big heart.

For every joke that misfires, there's either a decent joke or a genuinely romantic or heartwarming moment.
