The basic storyline of 50 First Dates: Henry Roth lives in Hawaii and spend his time wooing women who are visiting the island, simply because there is little chance of commitment. Then he meets Lucy Whitmore. One day they hit it off, and the next she doesn't even recognize him. It turns out that she suffers from short-term memory loss, and every day he tries to win her over once more. Firstly, I have to say that 50 First Dates is a really funny film. It isn't overly stupid, but it's not subtle either. But underneath the humour is where I believe this film's true beauty lies. It shows love in a way that I have never seen in another film before. From the way that her family sacrifices everything to keep her happy, and blissfully unaware of her condition, to Henry who, despite the fact that he could have just about any woman that he wanted, decides that he wants to be with Lucy, regardless of the fact that he has to meet her for the first time every day. Henry's character undergoes somewhat of a transformation in front of our eyes. The film starts off with him coming across as somewhat of a pig , and by the end of the film, we truly admire him. He even sacrifices his dream so that he can be with Lucy, and help her to move on with her life. The film isn't really predictable, either. For example, I spent the entire films assuming that the ending would be somewhat different. Although romcoms almost always have happy endings, this one damn near had me in tears. And it wasn't even sad. I never knew what a feel-good film was until I saw this...highly recommended.

I am not a big fan of romantic comedies, in fact some positively make me cringe, however '50 First Dates' doesn't - its sweet, heart warming and funny in all the right places. I love Adam Sandler movies and i think that this has to be up there with some of his best and i for one would definately watch this movie again in the future.
Henry Roth is like most guys of his age - he hates commitment. He lives in Hawaii as a marine biologist and picks up toursits, gives them the holiday of their lives, and then comes up with some excuse when they ask for his number. That is until he meets Lucy at the local diner and they arrange to meet back there for breakfast the next day. However, the next morning Henry finds that Lucy has no recollecion of him, and soon finds out from a friend of hers that she has no short term memory after suffering drain damage in a car accident. To Henry the answer is simple - make Lucy fall for him every single day.
Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore are here reunited after they were both in 'The Wedding Singer' together and whether '50 First Dates' is better or not it doesn't really matter, its still a great little film. Sandler plays the loveable Henry Roth a guy who loves a woman who doesen't remember him, and Barrymore plays the beautiful Lucy who wakes up every morning thinking she is living the same day. Sean Astin fresh out of 'Lord of the Rings' plays the muscle flexing Doug, the protective brother of Lucy. Dan Akroyd makes an appearence as Dr Keats, as do most of the usual Sandler crew that feature in most of his movies; Rob Schneider as Ula, Allen Covert as ten second tom and Peter Dante as the security guard.

You know those movies where you see the trailer in the theater and then when you see the actual movie you discover all the good parts were in the trailer? Well, "50 First Dates" is not one of those movies. In fact, I can make the argument that while the trailer may indeed have most of the funniest moments in this film, it most decidedly does not have any of the best moments of the film. When you see the trailer about this movie in which Adam Sandler has to make a first impression on Drew Barrymore every day because she has no short term memory and wakes up every morning forgetting what happened the previous day, you would think that he discovers this the next morning when she wakes up in bed with a stranger and starts screaming. However, I am happy to report, "50 First Dates" is not that movie either.
I have been trying to think of last time a movie prompted tears in my eyes as often as "50 First Dates." We know that Lucy Whitmore (Barrymore) no longer has any short term memory because of a car accident, but what we learn before we meet Lucy is that Henry Roth (Sandler) is apparently the king of the love 'em and leave 'em of the Hawaiian islands. Thus the great irony is that he falls for the one woman who can forget him faster and more completely than any tourist he has ever dumped. What we also learn about are the extraordinary lengths to which Lucy's family and friends go make each day the same happy day for her. Lucy's brother Doug (Sean Astin) needs to lay off the steroids but her father (Blake Clark) is fiercely and lovingly protective of his daughter. Watching everything that he and his son do each night to reset the stage for Lucy's happy day got me big time.
Unlike "Groundhog Day," which only had a few minor flaws in logic (e.g.
