Genre(s): Romantic Comedy
Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore, who shared such a sweet romance in the affectionate '80s send-up "The Wedding Singer," reunited for "50 First Dates," a silly but endearing comedy about Lucy, a woman who loses her memory every day thanks to an accident. Henry, the man who falls in love with her, must find a way to woo her while knowing that it is unlikely she will ever remember him the next morning. This tender comedy has the trademark goofiness of an Adam Sandler movie, but these are definitely two characters worth rooting for. The Hawaiian setting makes for a beautiful backdrop, and the cute animals that are incorporated into the story add to the humor. Co-stars include Sean Astin, Rob Schneider and Dan Aykroyd.
