50 First Dates




Gene the Barber

Gordie the Barber



It was about halfway through the picture when I figured out that this isn't the old kind of Sandler comedy, before I settled down to what's going on.

His character has no personality to speak of, and it's hard to know if he wants to be serious or funny.

Anyway, there's a new, strange feel to this romantic comedy that I didn't care for at all.

The animals were really cute, with some funny stuff, but overall--scissors down.

Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore reunite in 50 First Dates, a story of a woman with total no-recall.

Drew shines, and Adam--well despite the absence of his adolescent persona, it's still the same old schtick.

Did I mention the walrus vomit?

Poor Drew, if only she could wake up and forget what movie she's in.

The movie 50 First Dates is a romantic comedy about a man who falls in love with a woman who has short-term memory loss.

I found the idea to be a little off the wall, and I wasn't able to buy into the whole memory loss concept.

There also are too many idiotic plot holes for me to handle.
