Every now and then, we are compelled to post a review about a movie or restaurant that we believe has been maligned, or plain old reviewed with a bad slant. Adam Sandler’s “Blended” Movie is such a movie. Adam Sandler’s “Blended” movie is a delight, in actuality, as plentiful laughs of glee from the viewers of this PG-13 rated movie attest.
We wonder what unit of measure a film critic had when giving Adam Sandler’s “Blended” movie a lackluster review with a D+ (and also a “one star” rating). Whatever method that was used to arrive at such a lame rating, we’re not buying the ‘dis — it’s simply undeserved.
Sure, there are juvenile hi-jinks in “Blended,” but one does not go to an Adam Sandler movie to sit in stony, contemplative silence. We go for the laughs and sight gags.
Rarely will you hear so many belly-laugh’s or guffaws from a movie-going crowd as heard when watching the movie “Blended” in a movie theater. And, hey, this is a Happy Madison production, so those of us who enjoy Sandler’s inner-boy movies know, and eagerly anticipate, what is to come.
The movie “Blended” has humor, sweetness of heart, expressions of the importance of family and loss, that make “Blended” a great movie for families within the PG-13 range and above (think boobs and centerfolds).
Our 12-year old son laughed out loud repeatedly throughout “Blended,” as did his mom and friends who were in attendance. Actor Terry Crews, of “Everybody Hates Chris,” (and more) fame, was in stellar form (as usual) as a dancing entertainer in eye-popping garb as the “blended” theme of the of the story progressed to a vacation in Africa.
Actor Kevin Nealon and his newlywed wife were hilarious, adding new meaning to the word, “jiggle,” in addition to beautiful scenery in the films’ African scenes.
Drew Barrymore, touting luscious lip hues, was the perfect foil for Mr. Sandler, creating a believable romance. The “families” of children were stirringly portrayed with just the right amount of humor thrown in. And lastly, the divine Wendi McLendon-Covey (“The Goldbergs”) portrays a bestie with delightful sarcasm and wit.
Do yourself a favor, ignore what a (paid) movie reviewer has to say and take it from us, (admitted Adam Sandler fans); “Blended” is a delight. Stay for the song being sun after the movie ends; it’s adorably funny.
