    It could have been a bit smarter and a lot shorter, but Blended, the third big-screen pairing for Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore (after "The Wedding Singer" and "50 First Dates"), is a fun, often funny, largely enjoyable romp.

    Blended director Frank Coraci, a Happy Madison vet, is too much of a company man to elevate this passion-phobic rom-com beyond something more than an above-average Sandler production.

    Each sweet moment is inevitably punctuated by some in-your-face joke that’s at least as stupid as the preceding moments were heartfelt. Blended has other problems, too, including some faulty editing and a typically predictable finale. But there are some genuinely sweet and funny moments, which are more than enough to exceed expectations.

    What's missing from Blended? Two key ingredients: it doesn't touch the heart and it doesn't tickle the funny bone (at least not often enough).

    In Blended, his (Sandler) comic flab has never felt as thick, and this hackneyed "family-friendly" entertainment feels less like a movie than a bad sit-com re-run.

    He plays it so low-key there's nothing much for him to do, apart from the clueless-dad shtick and some awkward comedy with an ostrich. The big laughs never come.

    Most of Blended has the look and pacing of a three-camera sitcom filmed by a bunch of eighth graders and conceived by their less bright classmates. Shots don’t match. Jokes misfire. Gags that are visible from a mile away fail to deliver.

I went to see the movie with two adults and a 14 years old. We laughed the whole time. I laughed till I cried. There were so many cool people in this movie that made me laugh. Kevin Nelon, Laura Lumpkis ( form Orange is the new black) Bella Thorn, oh and Terry Crews so funny that he almost stole the entire movie. I never knew he was so funny. This movie is for people that have kids or were ever art of a Blended family like step kids , stepmoms. half siblings and the like. It really gets to the heart of family in a real and authentic way.

It looked like it was going to be a painful watch through the first twenty minutes, but it quickly blossoms into a fun film. Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore have been working together for almost 20 years now and this film is just as good as any of them. Sandler is a actor who has become one of the most typecast actors in the world today but his personality really works in this film. Blended is just a good family movie and its certainly underrated I can't believe that it has gotten such low ratings. Expand

Some are funnier than others. This one is pretty watchable and will put a smile on your face. The jokes however were very weak. A random women totally said" What happens in Africa stays in Africa." I could not believe that was suppose to be a joke. After that, the humor gets even lazier. I would be embarrassed if I heard an amateur comedian tell some of these jokes on stage. Expand

At some point, the studios need to start employing writers with talent, rather than the inhouse stooges that should return their pay, along with Mr Sandler. Expand
