Adam Sandler & Drew Barrymore Reunite for Safari in 'Blended' Trailer
"Is everyone ready to see the real Africa?!" Warner Bros has unveiled the first trailer for Blended, a new comedy starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore, reuniting again for their third time on screen following 50 First Dates and The Wedding Singer previously. This the time the two end up on an adventure to Africa with their whole family, a dysfunctional group stuck sharing a suite at a luxurious African safari resort for a week. If you were hoping this would be good, don't hold your breath, it looks pretty awful. Not only are half the animals CG, but it's easy to tell they're on sets half the time. I wish this looked funnier than it does here, maybe it will with another trailer, but for now it's yet another typical, bland summer comedy.
Here's the first official trailer for Frank Coraci's Blended, direct from Warner Bros' YouTube:
After a disastrous blind date, single parents Lauren (Barrymore) and Jim (Sandler) agree on only one thing: they never want to see each other again. But when they each sign up separately for a fabulous family vacation with their kids, they are all stuck sharing a suite at a luxurious African safari resort for a week. This also stars Joel McHale as Lauren’s ex-husband, and Wendi McLendon-Covey as her best friend; Kevin Nealon and Jessica Lowe as an overly romantic couple also vacationing; Terry Crews as the resort's singing host; and Dan Patrick as Dick. Blended is directed by Frank Coraci (of Murdered Innocence, The Wedding Singer, The Waterboy, Click, Zookeeper, Here Comes the Boom), from a script by Ivan Menchell & Clare Sera. Warner Bros will release Blended in theaters everywhere starting May 23rd next summer. So?
