    Saw this today.

    Probably one of my Favorite Sandler Movies to date.

    While there was still some silly Sandler antics, it wasn't overdone and seemed to fit with the movie.

    Drew and Adam just seem right together on the screen. They really complement each other.

    The ending was perfect. It could have gone in several directions and I'm glad it went the way it did.

    Definatly reccomend this movie to anyone looking for a romantic comedy.

    Sandler and Barrymore's onscreen chemistry shine through in this sweet romantic comedy. They play Henry and Lucy in a somewhat unconventional love story. I can't recall when Barrymore has been more appealing in a film in recent memory, and Sandler is honestly earnest in his attraction to Lucy, and his love for her drives the film to its conclusion.

    Rob Schneider is hilarious, and pretty much gets a laugh when he's on-screen. Sean Astin is also amusing as Lucy's brother.

    I give it 3 stars of a grade of B.

    Yeah 3 stars from me too. The first 15 minutes or so dragged, but then it got pretty funny and fast paced.

    Seeing the trailers I feared for the Schneider character but it turned out okay. Astin definitely broke the "Sam" mold with his role here! [​IMG]

    And yeah, the chemistry that Sandler and Barrymore have together is something that Affleck and JLo only WISHED they had onscreen! [​IMG]

    This movie isn't going to win any awards, but it was a very enjoyable escape for about an hour and a half. If you are a fan of The Wedding Singer, you will most likely enjoy this movie.

    I know I did!!

    Finally saw this movie with my date last night....she cried toward the end. Excellent chemistry between Adam and Drew. Good date movie.

    Adam and Drew....the new Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan??

    Caught this over the weekend. Enjoyed it quite a bit. I've gotta agree with everyone else about the Barrymore/Sandler chemistry. They make a great on-screen couple. I'd give it a B+.
