Sean Astin can flex his butt cheeks.

This film is so moving that I can't watch it without becoming emotional.

This movie is worse than the steriotypical cheesy rom-com. Much worse. Sandler is fed juvenile jokes and makes them infantile.

The movie is good at times. The movie is sad but very well put together. Adam is great. This isn't a movie that he is would normally play well in my opinion but he proved me wrong once again. He is one of the few actors who I guess really can play any role.. the small things in this movie are what are good.

Though the presence of Rob Schneider threatens to make the film awful, 50 First Dates manages to be one of the Happy Madison Productions' more sweet productions thanks to the great chemistry between Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore, plenty of laughs and even a bit of drama to help make its relatively interesting premise work.

I didn't love it but it has some heart.

It's a pretty romantic love story when you really think about it, but of course that's often lost amongst the beginning of Sandler's unfunny phase. And why does Rudy have a lisp?

Better than most Sandler trash but nothing special.

Can I say..."meh"? It's funny. It's kind of a clever plot. But I think the movie won't have been better without Adam Sandler. He tries to be Charming and sometimes it works. But it's the same thing he does in all his movies.

Drew Barrymore delivered as excellent performance as the adorable girl whose memory resets every day of her life so that she forgets that the previous day ever happened.

I'd make a joke about wishing I had the same problem so I could forget I saw this movie. But I actually found it pretty enjoyable. I'd recommend it.

I still enjoy watching this classic flick even after 50 first replays (poor pun, sorry). I still hum to the tune of "Forgetful Lucy," to this day.

The human mind is indeed a mystery. Despite limitations due to brain damage or so, our thoughts still relay a message even if we cannot seem to remember it.

Stupid. Drew Barrymore sucks!

The last decent thing Adam Sandler ever made.

I've always hated romantic movies, and I've never really enjoyed comedies (excluding Airplane, which remains one of the funniest movies I've ever seen). Needless to say, I wasn't particularly thrilled when my girlfriend told me she loved rom-coms. But after sitting through 50 First Dates with her, I don't think it'll be as hard as I thought to watch more in the future. True, it definitely wasn't a great movie. But it also wasn't as inherently awful as I assumed it would be. Most of the film's benefits come from the "rom" part of its genre. The chemistry between Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore is what carries the story. It's true that neither of the two are particularly good actors (Sandler especially), but the way the two interact is irresistible and adorable at times. Unfortunately, their chemistry and screen presence is about the only thing that keeps the movie going. Many of the supporting characters, particularly Barrymore's character's brother and Sandler's character's cousin are put on-screen to provide comic relief, which only sometimes works. Most of the time, it's awkward and gross. And the inclusion of Sandler's bi-sexual Russian co-worker often makes scenes uncomfortable and hard to watch, reminding audiences why Sandler's movies have gone downhill in the past decade. So, in that regard, its the "com" part of its genre that bogs the film down. Thankfully, 50 First Dates DOES give most of its focus to its lead characters, who provide an unorthodox love story. The movie's premise of a girl who has her memory reset every morning seems similar to Groundhog Day or the more recent Edge of Tomorrow is familiar, and led me to believe the movie would be very by-the-books. However, I was surprised at how unpredictable the story was, and even though I kept guessing at what I thought was going to be an obvious ending, I was proven (happily) wrong. In the end, 50 First Dates is a charming love story starring two actors that I thought I was going to hate in the role. The film's comedy tends to take away from the story, but otherwise it was a warm introduction for me into the world of rom-coms.

50 First Dates is another hilarious Adam Sandler movie and another romantic comedy by Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore. This movie is hilarious and heartwarming. I would very much suggest this movie.

Sandler and Barrymore were apparently trying to recreate some of the gold they struck together with The Wedding Singer, but this one falls pretty flat. At times it is down right sad and depressing more than it is funny for Barrymore's character. Script is pretty bad although there are a few cracks here and there that are okay.

good comedy with romance that couples or family can enjoy. Main guy from Rudy flexing all the time along with pot smoking, dolphin trainer Rob Schneider help drew and adam turn the film into 5star classic. Instead of taking advantage of Barrymore that forgets everything prior to an accident, Sandler thinks outside the box to not only win her heart daily but keep her forever.
