I love Adam Sandler. Not all of his movies are great, but this one is a gem. Believable yet farcical, and just the right blend of crass and stupid humour with glorious cheesey romance. Drew Barrymore is great also.

After watching the movie Blended I was filled with joy! Blended was a total feel-good movie. This movie was great for all ages and it is a very great option for families, because it is based on family! Blended was a movie about children and adults coming together to form a new life together. This movie was very funny as well as interesting to watch. The problems and antics filled in the movie Blended were not only able to keep you on your toes, but laughter filled, as well. My favourite actor in this movie was Bella Thorne. The reason I think that is because she's a great actress in this movie and was a very believable nerdy and shy girl. Basically, everyone made fun of her because her character looks like a boy when really she was a teenage girl looking for a good time. I would definitely recommend this movie because I loved it! I would say to watch it with the entire family so everyone can experience Blended together. I would rate the movie a 3.5/5.

The chemistry between Sandler and Berrymore is at its best, but what can you expect when they've worked together on great movies like Wedding Singer and 50 First Dates. If you enjoy comedies, then this is definitely a movie that the entire family will enjoy.

Very entertaining movie, but there are some suggestive elements in it -- much revolving around a teenage boy and his attraction to the family babysitter. There is also a lot of PDA from a newlywed couple, a few references to the assumed lesbianism of some of the characters and sexual humor (kids innocently discovering embarrassing items in a honeymoon suite, animals mating in the wild, etc).
Once you've gotten past that, the story is one that depict some humorous but real-life challenges for single parents and blended families alike in our modern world. It also lauds the virtue of parents thinking about what's best for their kids instead of just focusing on themselves.

I loved the movie and it does have good pro-family themes of the necessity of parents to put their kids first and spend quality time with their children.

Very funny movie. I have enjoyed the Barrymore Sandler chemistry in their other movies, so this was no different . You can already guess the outcome, but fun to see how they get there. I recommend this one to anyone.

drew and adam always have fun chemistry. if you're a single parent especially, this will make you laugh. a good blend of stupidity and touching drama. if you like this, be sure to watch 50 First Dates, made 10 years earlier, with the same couple starring.

I enjoyed the movie. I found the African musical group sat times, just not my type of entertainment. But the story is good and the sexual implications are very light and makes it a great film for all. The resort makes me want to go there, looks like a lot of fun and great animal photo sightseeing.
