This film made me laugh till my jaw hurt. Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler are back together for another comedy that is fun, smooth and has so many one-liners that everyone will repeat and remember for years to come! Blended is one of the funniest films of 2014 so far. I also believe this is the best and funniest of Sandler's film to date.

The amazing thing about this film is that it has a great story line with deep meaning. It isn't just about comedy. There is a romantic family get away with jokes, dancing and heartwarming scenes and a very special treat for all animal lovers out there.

The story starts when two single parents, Lauren and Jim, have a horrible blind Hooters! After that, and quite by accident, the two families end up enjoying a family vacation together. It is a funny adventure that makes you laugh, cry and stay at the age of your seat, pumped with excitement and anticipation of what is coming next.

I absolute love the chemistry. You can see that the actors are good friends and they play their emotions perfectly. The comedy is an Adam Sandler / Drew Barrymore classic but, it is not the usual everyday Hollywood comedy that you expect. This film has a message. Even though it is a funny movie, it has a story line that is easy to follow and easy to cry, to laugh and to be happy.

My favorite scene is when the two people, Jim and Lauren, first see each other. They get in line to buy something and in front of them is someone from another Happy Madison movie. Yep, they brought an old character from another movie that everyone adores. So, when this happens, it surprises everyone and it makes the audience laugh out loud. If you want to know who I am talking about, you have to watch the film.

Even though this is a comedy, there are a lot of jokes that are somewhat mature so I recommend it for ages 12 to 18. I also give it 5 out 5 stars for good chemistry, comedy and great acting. I hope this will not be the last film with this amazing duo because their partnership clearly works. It gives the film that little something extra that makes for an instant blockbuster.

After a blind date gone horribly wrong, Jim and Lauren agree they never, ever want to see each other again. Well, that's all about to change when the two find themselves and their respective families (including children) all stuck together in one suite at an African Safari vacation spot. Starring Adam Sandler, Drew Barrymore and Wendi McLendon-Covey.
