Film Review - Blended

BLENDED Adam Sandler Drew Barrymore

Adam Sandler hasn’t been hurting at the box office, yet “Blended” feels like an act of career desperation. The last few years have showcased a fatigued performer unable to revive the glorious insanity of his early work, resorting to drag (“Jack & Jill”), sequels (“Grown Ups 2”), and animated fare (“Hotel Transylvania”) to keep the money train in motion, forgoing the nuisance of actual jokes to plow ahead with bodily function humor and strained broheim shenanigans with equally tired co-stars. “Blended” isn’t a return to form for Sandler, but it resembles an actual movie at times, a quality that’s been missing from his recent output. Never inspired but intermittently amusing, “Blended” brings in Drew Barrymore, a proven Sandler love interest, to pull the star out of his shell, and it works, but not nearly to the extent it should.
