Plot:
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 Roth (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!

My Thoughts:
I know of a lot of people that dislike Adam Sandler... but I personally have always enjoyed his movies. I also have enjoyed Drew Barrymore in most the stuff I have seen her in. So this movie is a no-brainer for me. I did enjoy this movie... Very much so... even more then I remembered! It is definitely a more mature comedy then a lot of other Adam Sandler movies. Drew Barrymore was great as the cute and sweet girl next door with no short term memory. I also loved how they ended this movie. They opted to make it more realistic instead of trying to pull off some sort of miracle cure for Lucy. Was there anything I didn't like about this movie? Sure... there is the walrus vomit joke which would have fit in many Sandler movies... but just didn't belong in this one... then there was Lucy singing the Beach Boy Song with a terrible (hopefully fake) singing voice. And lastly I didn't care much for Lucy's brother. But all that is really minor... and didn't ruin my enjoyment of the movie much... if at all. I would say even if you do not usually enjoy Adam Sandler movies... give this one a chance... you may be surprised.

My Rating:
Out of a Possible 5

My Thoughts:
It's been a while since I've watched this movie (almost 2 years) and tonight I was in the mood for something different, so I've decided to visit it again. The director name probably ring a bell for some members here since he had directed Nekromantik, Nekromantik 2 and Der Todesking (this one seems really interesting). I can say one thing, if you think that Nekromantik is weird be prepare for a weirdest viewing experience.

In this movie you are in the head of the killer at the moment of his death (in fact the movie start with his death scene) and this man's mind is really confuse. The film is hard to understand since it doesn't have a continuous storyline from A to B, so you get the story by mixed fragment with no logical timeline. But this is a good idea to get really in the film. Surprisingly you get much more male nudity in the film than women one (even frontal one), not something that really please me but perfectly understandable since the movie is about the killer and not his victims (don't expect a serial killer movie this is not that kind of movie). Speaking of nudity, this film had one of the most unpleasant scene to watch for a man that I've ever seen  :bash:1).

This is not a movie that I watch often, but if you want to watch something artistic and different give it a try.

1. Just imagine that the head is another genre of more sensible one

Tom's Random Star Trek Reviews, a review by Tom


Star Trek: The Animated Series
Season 2.06 The Counter-Clock Incident
Writer: Gene Roddenberry (Original Characters By), John Wise (Writer)
Director: Bill Reed, Hal Sutherland
Cast: William Shatner (Capt. Kirk), Leonard Nimoy (Mr. Spock), DeForest Kelley (Dr. McCoy), George Takei (Mr. Sulu), Nichelle Nichols (Uhura), Majel Barrett (Nurse Chapel), James Doohan (Scotty)

The Enterprise enters a universe where the time moves backwards and the crew is getting younger and younger. It is an enjoyable episode, but it is full of scientific nonsense.
