Forgetful Lucy

We just got back from watching 50 First Dates and I have to say I really liked the movie. It had a few really hilarious parts and more parts that just didn’t make any sense, but it was quite good indeed. What I liked best about it is the chemistry between Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore. They seemed to have a very charming and convincing chemistry in The Wedding Singer and it really seemed to Devina and me that they could very well be a couple in real life after seeing this film. Now that I think about it, I’d say they were the modern-day Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan duo that everyone loved to see in the 80’s and 90’s.

I wasn’t too crazy about Rob Schneider’s character in this film, but the scene where Drew was beating him with that baseball bat had everyone in the theatre bellowing with laughter. Shit, I think I snorted while laughing during that scene.

The really cool part about the film was the animals in the aquarium. I dug the penguin, but Jocko the walrus was the most kick ass character in the movie. I really didn’t know you could train walruses to act like that. Either way, Adam and Drew did a wonderful job in this flick and it’s definitely worth watching if you’re into cheesy comedic love stories. 🙂

Plus it has a pretty kick ass soundtrack of 80’s cover songs mostly done reggae style. Right after the movie, we went next door to the Barnes & Nobles and I picked up a copy. The sad part is that this is the first CD I have bought in a very long time. The last one was that piece of shit Metallica CD I wasted my hard earned money on last year. Yes, I’m still sore about that…

Hmmm, I just saw a trailer for The Punisher. I’m not sure how I feel about this as I loved the comic book growing up. I really hope they don’t mess this version up like they did the last one.

yes, here’s hoping the new Punisher is at least halfway decent!
Did you hear Rob Schneider isn’t being allowed to vote in the academy awards because all of his “characters are the same”? While I think that’s BS, it seems from your description and the previews that holds true for this movie too.

Damn, boy! I didn’t know you moved! I’ll keep lascivious linked, too, but now that I know you’re here…. [bwah-hah-hah!]

I loved “50 First Dates”! You’re right – they did have great chemistry. It was also nice seeing Adam Sandler in another not-so-dorky role, you know? Saw it with Jon as a double feature of sorts with “Along Came Polly” 🙂
