Since I just wanted to chill out and have a good laugh after hearing Sunday mass and having dinner later on at home. P and I decided to watch movie at home and he suggested watching “Blended” starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore who were also screen partners in their erstwhile movie The Wedding Singer and 50 First Dates.
To get a general idea of what the movie is all about here’s the trailer of the movie.
This movie got a lot of flak since according to viewers there wasn’t really much of a content in it and the story was more of a rehash to Sandler’s movie with Jennifer Anniston in 2011 Just Go With It.
However, since I didn’t really feel the need to ponder much about the movie since it’s a romantic comedy and not a though provoking film like The Giver and Inception. I had a good laugh with the easy conversational style and on screen chemistry portrayed by the leads here. Their witty banters and Drew’s pearly laugh in response to some awkward scenarios and exchanges between the two made the movie a light movie to watch for the night.
Blended actually portrays how modern families all come into play right now with the advent of divorce or an untimely death of a spouse due to a debilitating infirmity. These couples who were left alone are looking for a second chance at love along with their kids in tow.
If you’re looking for a movie to watch to just pass away the time, have a good laugh and if you’re ultimate fans of Sandler and Barrymore’s charisma and on screen partnership then this movie is for you.
