Product Description

Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore star together for the first time since The Wedding Singer in one of the funniest romantic comedies in years. Henry (Sandler) lives an enviable life in a Hawaiian paradise, spending every night with a beautiful tourist in search of an island fling. It's a sweet life with no strings attached...until he meets Lucy (Barrymore). He and Lucy hit it off from the get-go, but the next day she acts like she doesn't know him. Has his karma come around to kick him in the butt or what? Actually, Lucy has short-term memory loss so every night all memory of her day is erased. But a man in love will go to any lengths to win over the girl of his dreams, and if that means having to find imaginative ways of doing it over again every day, then Henry's up for the challenge. Rob Schneider (Big Daddy) and Sean Astin (The Lord of the Rings trilogy) co-star in 50 First Dates, which will win you over every time you watch it!

Amazon.com

With generous amounts of good luck and good timing, 50 First Dates set an all-time box-office record for the opening weekend of a romantic comedy; whether it deserved such a bonanza is another issue altogether. It's a sweet-natured vehicle for sweet-natured stars Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore, and their track record with The Wedding Singer no doubt factors in its lowbrow appeal. But while the well-matched lovebirds wrestle with a gimmicky plot (she has no short-term memory, so he has to treat every encounter as their first), director Peter Segal (who directed Sandler in Anger Management) ignores the intriguing potential of their predicament (think Memento meets Groundhog Day) and peppers the proceedings with the kind of juvenile humor that Sandler fans have come to expect. The movie sneaks in a few heartfelt moments amidst its inviting Hawaiian locations, and that trained walrus is charmingly impressive, but you can't quite shake the feeling that too many good opportunities were squandered in favor of easy laughs. Like Barrymore's character, you might find yourself forgetting this movie shortly after you've seen it. --Jeff Shannon

By Lawrance Bernabo HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on February 22, 2004
You know those movies where you see the trailer in the theater and then when you see the actual movie you discover all the good parts were in the trailer? Well, "50 First Dates" is not one of those movies. In fact, I can make the argument that while the trailer may indeed have most of the funniest moments in this film, it most decidedly does not have any of the best moments of the film. When you see the trailer about this movie in which Adam Sandler has to make a first impression on Drew Barrymore every day because she has no short term memory and wakes up every morning forgetting what happened the previous day, you would think that he discovers this the next morning when she wakes up in bed with a stranger and starts screaming. However, I am happy to report, "50 First Dates" is not that movie either.

I have been trying to think of last time a movie prompted tears in my eyes as often as "50 First Dates." We know that Lucy Whitmore (Barrymore) no longer has any short term memory because of a car accident, but what we learn before we meet Lucy is that Henry Roth (Sandler) is apparently the king of the love 'em and leave 'em of the Hawaiian islands. Thus the great irony is that he falls for the one woman who can forget him faster and more completely than any tourist he has ever dumped. What we also learn about are the extraordinary lengths to which Lucy's family and friends go make each day the same happy day for her. Lucy's brother Doug (Sean Astin) needs to lay off the steroids but her father (Blake Clark) is fiercely and lovingly protective of his daughter. Watching everything that he and his son do each night to reset the stage for Lucy's happy day got me big time.

Unlike "Groundhog Day," which only had a few minor flaws in logic (e.g.

The idea behind this film is that in a successful relationship you have to fall in love over and over again. In this story it happens literally everyday.

The performances:
Adam Sandler as Henry Roth shows his vulnerable side in his best and most natural performance.
Drew Barrymore as Lucy Whitmore has never been better, and has great chemistry with Adam. She emerges as a fine actor.
Rob Schneider as Ula may fool you that he is really the character he is playing, I didn't know it was him for half the move! He is brilliantly funny.
Sean Astin as Doug Whitmore (better known as Sam from the Lord of the Rings) is funny in this comic role as Lucy's lisping brother.
Pomaika'i Brown as Nick (tattoo face) the cook, is great in his small role and deserves bigger roles in the future.
Shot in Hawaii, it has beautiful cinematography and vibrant color. The movie is a combination of humor and romance with more heart than you might expect.

Adam Sandler's previous track record has been shaky, with some underwritten comedies (Anger Management) and movies that failed to find a mainstream audience (Big Daddy). 50 firsts Dates makes an improvement by not only providing an original script that lends itself to both comedic double entrees and depth, courtesy of Drew Barrymore's stunning performance, with convincing pathos. Sandler brings another great character to the screen, especially since this story provokes just as many tears as guffaws. This is possibly Sandler's best film and boasts great comedic turns from Rob Scheider and Sean Astin. This film really does work on all levels, and considering I'm not a fan of the genre. Combining an impressive supporting cast with a sprightly running time and hip soundtrack, and you have one of the best comedies of recent years. Highly reccomended.

This is a charming, increasingly romantic movie about a brain-damaged woman (Drew Barrymore) who loses her memory of the current day as soon as she goes to sleep. So when a marine veterinarian (Adam Sandler) falls for her, he has to woo her afresh each new day. Since I don't care for most of Sandler's juvenile humor and flabby acting, I was very surprised to find that I like not only this story, but Sandler as the love interest. Here, he is neither slack-jawed nor whiny, but somebody likeable enough to root for. Although the plot sounds contrived to be sort of Groundhog Day meets Memento -- this story feels like it maybe coulda happened, because of Drew's emotional range and the chemistry of the stars. The story often is funny in a silly way -- love the great kids and animals! -- and all the parts were well cast, including Astin and Schneider (who I did not recognize until reading the credits). For me, the film got better and more involving as it built, and it was ultimately satisfying and touching as Sandler figured out a way to adapt the relationship to his love's limitations. When people call this movie slow, I think it's because people are used to sitcoms and are not patient with films that show characters developing -- it takes time that one doesn't have to invest in broader comedies. But I found it rewarding and much more memorable in the end. I like it as much as Stuck on You, another film that surprised me with its combination of humor and sweetness.

I absolutely adore this movie! It's sweet and funny. It makes you laugh and cry. I do admit that somethings in the movie were a little annoying, the little obvious things that were thrown in there, specifically bc they knew it would make people laugh. While, yes I DID think these little pieces were funny, they were somewhat annoying strictly bc they didn't seem to fit seamlessly into the movie...as if they filmed the entire movie and thought "we need more time and funny stuff" and then cut and pasted these in.

I convinced my bf to watch this movie with me and he liked it. (He found the small "annoying" parts completely hilarious...go figure *^-^*)So obviously they did something right.

I have to point out that someone mentioned earlier, Adam Sandler basically plays the same parts in all his movies. I'm glad I'm not the only one to have noticed this. While I like some of his movies, I don't like them ALL. And I wasn't really expecting all too much from this movie. I was curious about it, and was told that it was a really funny & cute movie. But I probably wouldn't have seen it, had I not bought it for my sister as a gift, and she insisted we sit down right then and watch it.

Well, I'm glad I did *^-^*

This movie is DEFINATELY worth seeing! (and buying!)

Although, I've noticed this movie is about 50/50. You'll either love it or hate it. So I suggest NOT buying it until after you've seen it, unless you are some sort of die-hard Adam Sandler or Drew Barrymore fan.
