Reuniting Adam Sandler, Drew Barrymore and director Frank Coraci -- the trifecta behind New Line Cinema's game--changing romantic comedy The Wedding Singer -- this globetrotting romantic comedy follows two single parents, Jim and Lauren (Sandler and Barrymore) who, after a disastrous blind date, agree on only one thing: they never want to see each other again. But when they each sign up separately for a fabulous family vacation with their kids, they find themselves stuck sharing a suite at a luxurious African safari resort for a week. Now these two very different families stuck together will have to find a way to blend in order to survive each other. Arrested Development's Terry Crews, Community's Joel McHale and Saturday Night Live's Kevin Nealon join the fun as part of the hilarious mix.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: Lurching between slapstick and schmaltz without showing much of a commitment to either, Blended commits the rare Sandler sin of provoking little more than boredom.

Common Sense Says
Predictable Sandler/Barrymore comedy has lots of sex jokes.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that the scope of Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore's third romantic comedy pairing (after The Wedding Singer and 50 First Dates) has, like its stars, aged a bit: The duo now play hapless single parents rather than hapless singles. But this blended-family story is no Brady Bunch: Like all of Sandler's comedies, there's plenty of sexual innuendo, with allusions to breasts, masturbation, porn, body size, and more. One couple on the vacation often makes out publicly and refers to their sex life, and adults drink socially at dinners and parties. Language includes the occasional "a--hole," "ass," and "s--t," as well as "butt hole," "crap," etc. All of that said, there are some worthy take-aways about parenting here, and step-families may particularly enjoy the positive messages about the importance of strong blended families.
