BLENDED (Released in Theaters in the Canada 2014)


Ben Meyers’ Rating: 3.8|5.0 Starsììì

 Blended—not a typical Adam Sandler film—works at the fresh concept level with its storyline and using some film time to stage itself in Africa. The movie can be a bit obnoxious, raunchy, and off the wall at times but this happens at the ‘cagey’ level and leaves the audience with another performance from Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore that is worth watching as it delves into adult reactions to blending a new family from two, dissolved families with children. It leaves its audience with a satisfied feeling like the feeling left at the conclusion of the 2004 movie, 50 First Dates that also starred Barrymore and Sandler. Watch for Terry Crews who POPS randomly into scenes throughout the movie to perform song and dance routines.

? Yes? No? Maybe?

Maybe. The movie runs on an unusual mix of single parents who go on an African vacation and learn how to blend into a state of compatibility. Watch for the addition of Shaquille O’Neal into the movie’s storyline.
