Funny, clever and heartwarming. Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler have great chemistry as the two leads in this film.

I watched this on TBS so I'm sure a lot of it was edited out but I found it rather cute. No Drew Barrymore/Adam Sandler movie will ever top "The Wedding Singer", but it was nice to see a family comedy that wasn't that funny but had it's sweet moments. I didn't really care for the Africa scenes but I was pleasantly surprised that this wasn't as terrible as I anticipated. I might even watch it again sometime.

One of my favorite Drew Barrymore films along with Music and Lyrics.

Blended is an Adam Sandler focusing after two single parents have a disastrous first date. The two despite all odds both get their friends tickets to take their families on a family strengthening trip to Africa. When they get their they realize they both got tickets and are now forced to stay together in a room and share the experiences. Along the way they end up forming a strong bond, throughout the hectic trip. I would recommend this movie because is it extremely heartwarming and funny. @GoosReviews of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

After watching the movie Blended I was filled with joy! Blended was a total feel-good movie. This movie was great for all ages and it is a very great option for families, because it is based on family! Blended was a movie about children and adults coming together to form a new life together. This movie was very funny as well as interesting to watch. The problems and antics filled in the movie Blended were not only able to keep you on your toes, but laughter filled, as well. My favourite actor in this movie was Bella Thorne. The reason I think that is because she's a great actress in this movie and was a very believable nerdy and shy girl. Basically, everyone made fun of her because her character looks like a boy when really she was a teenage girl looking for a good time. I would definitely recommend this movie because I loved it! I would say to watch it with the entire family so everyone can experience Blended together. I would rate the movie a 3.5/5.

The chemistry between Sandler and Berrymore is at its best, but what can you expect when they've worked together on great movies like Wedding Singer and 50 First Dates. If you enjoy comedies, then this is definitely a movie that the entire family will enjoy.

Very entertaining movie, but there are some suggestive elements in it -- much revolving around a teenage boy and his attraction to the family babysitter. There is also a lot of PDA from a newlywed couple, a few references to the assumed lesbianism of some of the characters and sexual humor (kids innocently discovering embarrassing items in a honeymoon suite, animals mating in the wild, etc).
Once you've gotten past that, the story is one that depict some humorous but real-life challenges for single parents and blended families alike in our modern world. It also lauds the virtue of parents thinking about what's best for their kids instead of just focusing on themselves.

I loved the movie and it does have good pro-family themes of the necessity of parents to put their kids first and spend quality time with their children.

Very funny movie. I have enjoyed the Barrymore Sandler chemistry in their other movies, so this was no different . You can already guess the outcome, but fun to see how they get there. I recommend this one to anyone.

drew and adam always have fun chemistry. if you're a single parent especially, this will make you laugh. a good blend of stupidity and touching drama. if you like this, be sure to watch 50 First Dates, made 10 years earlier, with the same couple starring.
