When Rob Schneider is the best thing about your movie, you know you have a problem.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
...one mediocre Valentine's Day gift, with all the panache of grocery store chocolate.
| Original Score: C
Lucy wakes up every morning with no memory of anything that happened the day before. For the rest of us, everything in this movie is just too, too familiar.
| Original Score: C
Relies too heavily on juvenile humor.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
Romance meets neurology in this Adam Sandler-Drew Barrymore romance that only works when she's on-screen.
| Original Score: 2/5
1/3 slob comedy, 1/3 romantic schmaltz and 1/3 Memento / Groundhog Day. The result is as choppy and unformed as one might expect from such a recipe.
This movie paints itself into a corner from which it cannot emerge without becoming an utter disaster as far as I'm concerned.
like a Valentine's Day present from Adam Sandler - if he hated us, each and every one
| Original Score: 1.5/5
This dopey film has virtually nothing going for it but its genial stars.
| Original Score: C-
Tries to cram Sandler's typically vulgar modus operandi into a format that is entirely foreign to him. The combination is unpleasant.
Adam Sandler's farewell to movies.
Vast majority of the humor is so grotesquely obvious and crudely presented (in addition to being mildly crude in and of itself) that Sandler dissenters are guaranteed to remain just where they are.
If you think PG-13 is still a safe haven for children these days, Sandler (whose appeal and box office muscle continue to baffle) and his ilk have hoodwinked you again.
| Original Score: D
A misogynist comedy obsessed with penis length, bashing sexually ambiguous people and letting a stunted, dopey male snare his ditzy dream babe. . . . cheap, slumming comedy.
50 First Dates is working awfully hard to be romantic and not hard enough to be a comedy.
| Original Score: 2/4
Nothing more than a witless exercise that is so desperate for laughs that it actually stoops to trotting out a vomiting walrus in the first ten minutes...

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