SATURDAY NIGHT MOVIE REVIEW: I was too tired to watch a movie on Friday, so instead I watched one last night. The movie I watched is another Happy Madison movie called “Blended” which stars Adam Sandler (Big Daddy, Eight Crazy Nights), Drew Barrymore (Donnie Darko, 50 First Dates), Kevin Nealon (Daddy Day Care, Just Go With It), Terry Crews (Norbit, Get Smart), Wendi McLendon-Covey (The Goldbergs, Bridesmaids), Emma Fuhrmann (The Magic of Belle Isle, Are We Listening?), Bella Thorne (Shake It Up!, Frenemies), Braxton Beckham, Alyvia Alyn Lind (See Dad Run, The Young and the Restless), Kyle Red Silverstein (Lift, Gabe the Cupid Dog), Joel McHale (The Soup, Community), Shaquille O’Neal (Grown Ups 2, Good Burger), Dan Patrick (The Waterboy, Jack and Jill), and Zak Henri. The movie starts with a blind date between a divorced mom named Lauren (Barrymore) and a widowed dad named Jim (Sandler). The date is going horribly wrong, especially since Jim took her to Hooters for their date, and they basically end up disliking each other. One day Jim goes to Lauren’s house because they accidentally switched credit cards and they both hear Lauren’s friend, Jen (McLendon-Covey), talking about how her boyfriend and her broke up because he has five kids, ending a trip to Africa that they were going to take. It turns out that Jim has three girls and they need to take a trip and since Jen’s ex is his boss, he gets him to give him the tickets. Lauren also needs to take her two sons on a trip because her ex-husband cancelled a camping trip with them and gets Jen to give her the other three tickets. This causes a problem when Jim and Lauren see each other at Africa and discover that they will have to spend their vacation together. I thought the movie was good. The acting was great as always, the story was average, and of course it was funny. The beginning of the movie wasn’t good making me think that the critics were right, but then it picked up pace at the middle, giving this movie a juicy score. Other cons of this movie are how dirty it is. The main subject of puns in this movie have to do with growing up (puberty wise) and it gets pretty raunchy making it uncomfortable to watch with my other sibling, which are young. Other than those, this movie did well and I recommend anyone to give it a try and ignore what the critics say. FINAL SCORE: 74%= Juicy Popcorn
