There aren’t too many onscreen couples in recent romantic comedies that stick out in our minds. Actually, there’s very few because a good chunk of rom-coms just aren’t that good. But then there’s 50 First Dates and The Wedding Singer, both sweet films that star Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore. The last time we saw them onscreen was a few years back, so it’s no wonder we’re going to see them in Blended.
Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore will be co-starring in the upcoming romantic comedy set to be directed by Frank Coraci. In some ways this is a perfect combination, mainly because Coraci has worked with Sandler a couple of times before (The Wedding Singer, The Waterboy). The script is written by Ivan Menchell and Claire Sera and will more than likely begin filming sometime later this year.
We haven’t seen Drew Barrymore step into a romantic comedy since Going the Distance a couple of years ago. On Sandler’s end, the last rom-com he participated in was Just Go With It which a lot of critics wish to forget. Still, the combination of these two onscreen will be enough to perk the interest of many movie-goers out there. Continue reading on to see what this new movie is all about.
Recently divorced mother of two boys, LAUREN REYNOLDS, and widowed father of three girls, JIM FRIEDMAN, have a disastrous blind date that puts them off dating for the foreseeable future. However, when the two purchase a discount “Familymoon” vacation from Lauren’s best friend and business partner, JEN, they wind up at an African resort with their kids in tow. Initially acrimonious, their relationship skews, gradually and irresistibly, towards romance.
