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…
