‘Blended’ Trailer: Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore Reunite for a New Rom-Com

‘The Wedding Singer’ came out in 1998, so it’s possible that people who went on a date to see the Adam Sandler/Drew Barrymore movie in theaters could have teenagers now. That’s reflected in the trailer for their third outing together as the duo both play single parents who go on the same family vacation to Africa.
The twist is that the two went on a date previously and it went horribly and now they’re stuck on vacation together. Sparks must then eventually start flying. The film also features the always excellent Terry Crews, Kevin Nealon and ‘Community”s Joel McHale, so maybe it’s better than it looks. The film comes from ‘Wedding Singer’ director Frank Coraci, who also helmed ‘The Waterboy’ and ‘Click’ for Sandler.
‘The Wedding Singer’ was a big hit in 1998, and was considered Sandler’s first big crossover movie, as his previous films mostly appealed to his male fanbase. This is also why Sandler has often gone back and forth between his more wacky comedies, and movies like this or ‘Just Go With It.’ Sandler and Barrymore previously reunited in 2004 for ’50 First Dates,’ which performed well at the box office. But ‘Blended’ is taking more chances as it’s coming out May 23 and will be opening against ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past.’
