Blended Movie Review

I’ve been holding off on Blended for quite some time.  In the past several years, I’ve lost faith in Adam Sandler movies.  Movies like You Don’t Mess With Zohan, Grown Ups 1 & 2 and Jack and Jill truly disappointed.  That being said, so far every time Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler have joined up, it has been silly, sweet, cinematic gold as far as I’m concerned.  Though not gold, Blended falls somewhere in the silver range.  I will, however, admit to a certain bias.  I want daughters more than anything so any story about daughters loving their daddy automatically gets some points with me.  Though predictable in just about every romantic comedy way, with familiar characters from the Happy Madison Production family, Blended was a good time.  The key to a romantic comedy is you want the leads to get together, like each other and fall in love.  I can honestly say I did want that.  I wanted the children to have a loving mommy and daddy.  That makes Blended a success in my book.  Was the story predictable?  Yes.  Was the acting amazing?  No, but it wasn’t terrible either.  Were some of the stupid gags unnecessary?  Of course; it’s a Happy Madison production.  I guess what I’m saying is, go into Blended with the right expectations and you might be pleasantly surprised.  Go in expecting a clever romantic comedy experience that breaks the formula, and you’ll be disappointed.

God has led me and my lovely wife Bethany to Church of the Foothills where I currently reside as the Digital Publishing Coordinator. I'm excited to see where God leads my wife and I.
