Adam Sandler and sniffing superglue have something in common for me, when it comes to watching his movies. I mean, I know that the stuff is bad for you, but I keep coming back to it time and time again. Reuniting with his Wedding Singer and 50 First Dates co-star Drew Barrymore for a new comedy, Sandler is taking the slapstick to Africa, touring the Lost City, Kruger National Park and waitaminute…They shot the film here?
“Blended” marks the third comedy collaboration between stars Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore, following their successful onscreen pairings in the hit romantic comedies “50 First Dates” and “The Wedding Singer.”
After a disastrous blind date, single parents Lauren (Barrymore) and Jim (Sandler) agree on only one thing: they never want to see each other again. But when they each sign up separately for a fabulous family vacation with their kids, they are all stuck sharing a suite at a luxurious African safari resort for a week.
“Blended” also stars Joel McHale (NBC’s “Community”) as Lauren’s ex-husband, Mark, and Wendi McLendon-Covey (“Bridesmaids”) as her best friend, Jen; Kevin Nealon (“Weeds”) and Jessica Lowe (funnyordie’s “RobotDown”) as an overly romantic couple also vacationing at the resort; Terry Crews (“The Expendables 2”) as the resort’s singing host; and Dan Patrick (ESPN SportsCenter) as Dick.
Playing the kids are: Bella Thorne of Disney Channel’s “Shake it Up,” Emma Fuhrmann and Alyvia Alyn Lynd as Jim’s daughters; and Kyle Red Silverstein and Braxton Beckham as Lauren’s sons.
Seeing Terry Crews with a local hair style and a manic smile is just wrong, wrong I say. Blended is out next year May and stars Adam Sandler, Drew Barrymore, Joel McHale, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Kevin Nealon, Jessica Lowe, Terry Crews, Dan Patrick, Bella Thorne and Emma Fuhrmann. Frank Coraci directs.
