Stress is not good to our health. The easiest way to cure it is to tag a friend and watch a film. It was a stressful week for me because I went back to work after three months yet the good thing is a movie bonding to look forward to. Hooray!
Last June 10, it was the advanced screening of Blended at Greenbelt 3, Cinema 2 and I was fortunate to watch it via VIP seats.
Blended is the third movie of Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore together. I haven’t seen the first one which is The Wedding Singer but I truly love them with the 51st Dates.
Blended is another romantic comedy film which not only focuses with Jim Friedman (Adam Sandler) and Lauren Reynolds (Drew Barrymore), the single parents who met because of a blind date but with their children.
Here comes the Friedman!
Jim is a father of three lovely girls whose wife unfortunately died because of cancer. So what’s the catch? He is determined to make his daughters as sons. Hilary or Larry (Bella Thorne) is the eldest who though to be lesbian because of the way she dresses, Espn (yes she was named after the network!) the middle child who still not moved on from her mother’s death and the adorable Lou who loves his dad to the fullest!
Meet the Reynolds!
She is known as one of the Closet Queens, Lauren who separated from her cheating husband manages her work and time with her kids. She has two sons, Brendan who got addicted with pornographic magazines and secretly in love with his baby sitter and Tyler who likes doing extraordinary things.
The Extras on Top and Bottom!
My favorite extra toppings in the movie are Jen, Lauren’s best friend who does not want kids, the very funny Nickes and the super sexy Ginger who wiggles her body whenever someone speaks about romance.
Shaquille O’Neal appearances as Doug is a bit dissapointing and Jake, Hilary’s love interest is quite alright.
Into the Wilderness!
Africa was the perfect place for the vacation get-away of the two families. Like them, I fell in love with the place! The Skydiving of Drew Barrymore was one of the most jocular scenes in the movie! Another favorite of mine is ‘the massage session’ of Jim and Lauren.
The Complicated Matters…
The last night of their trip, Jim prepared a romantic date for Lauren but before they kissed, Jim pulled back. When Jim realized that he fell in love with Lauran, Mark (Lauren’s former husband) suddenly came out.
Hmm are they going to be together? And what is behind the ‘Blended’s’ title?
You have to find it out! The film is still showing nationwide!
Perksbewithyou’s rating: 8.5/10 (Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore’s team up never fails to make me laugh all through out the film!)
