Adam Sandler & Drew Barrymore together for the third time
Blended is a 2014 Romantic Comedy staring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore. It's the third time the actors have worked together following the highly successful release of '50 First Dates' in 2004 and 'The Wedding Singer' in 1998. These two have great on-screen chemistry in both films.
Directed by Frank Coraci and written by Ivan Menchell and Clare Sera, its the story of Jim Friedman (Sandler) a widower with three daughters Hilary (Bella Thorne), Espn (Emma Fuhrmann) and Lou (Alyvia Alyn Lind) who meets Lauren Reynolds (Barrymore) a divorcee with two sons Brendon (Braxton Beckham) and Tyler (Kyle Red Silverstein) who all end up on the same holiday together.
After a terrible blind date Lauren (Barrymore) hopes to never see Jim (Sandler) again, little did she know he was going to become a big part of her life.
When Lauren's best friend Jen decides she doesn't want to go on a holiday with her partner Eddy after finding out he has five children she gives her ticket to Lauren. She then takes her two boys away for the school holidays after their father cancels on them at the last minute.
However Eddy is Jim's boss and he gives Jim his ticket to take his three girls away and they all end up staying together living in shared accommodation at an African safari holiday. The safari is a retreat that is used for blending new families together. The movie is a great mix of romance and comedy featuring African animals, camping, cricket, massages, extreme sports and family bonding.
A terrible blind date that ends up being the best thing that could have happened to both of them. A whirlwind romance right in front of your eyes in the matter of 117 minutes.
