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?

Nah, actually. The press release says that it "was filmed predominantly on location in South Africa." So there ya go.

Just thought it looked like comedy Africa. 🙂

This movie looks terrible, like every Sandler movie post 50 First Dates, but I'm happy to see Barrymore back on the big screen.

Why do people still pay to see Adam Sandler suck in a movie? Please 2015 bring us a world where he stops polluting the world with shitty movies.

Brian Sleider on Dec 17, 2013


He's a genius Brian.

Clearly, makes awful movies, continues to make bank.

Why put effort into a film (Pacific Rim) when audiences want crap (Grown Ups 2)

cetrata on Dec 17, 2013


With Jack and Jill and That's My Boy disappointing, plus a decline in gross for Grown Ups 2 from its predecessor, audiences have shown that they're tiring of Sandler's penchant for lowbrow humor. The fact that he's teaming up with Drew Barrymore for this will mean next to nothing. Their last movie was 10 years ago.

Sandler needs to keep making movies like this. Family fun movies with the feel good undertone. None of them are going to be box office hits, but they will make money, he doesn't have to be over the top, and he can coast the rest of his career catering to the mom's and their kids.

Dear Adam Sandler, Please try to be funny again or retire from acting. We have loved your earlier films but your jokes are simply starting to suck now. Sincerely, Your Fans

Charlie Hard on Dec 18, 2013


Haha, agreed^. Maybe it's simply time to retire from comedy and look into drama or something. If he got better at his all around acting skills...he could make a good villain?

Where are the CGI animals? I thought I'd be able to spot them. maybe the small animal next to the lions? That's literally the only one I spotted.

Jesus - Just by looking at the poster i dont even want to give this trailer a chance. I'm tired of him making these "family" movies. He needs to revert back to his Happy Gilmore days.

Such heroic nonsense on Dec 18, 2013


I don't think he has it in him to go back to those days. What he needs is to try something new, as in team up with another comedian who has made a name for himself and found just as much success.

Why is it that if Barrymore were playing her character from 50 First Dates in this it would rock.?

Johnny Neat on Dec 18, 2013


The Lions looked all scraggly and beat up. They must've used the bargain basement Lions to keep costs down huh? I guess since the species is nearly EXTINCT I shouldn't be surprised.
