Product description

Product Description

Double bill featuring two popular memory-play comedies. '50 First Dates' (2004) stars Drew Barrymore as Lucy Whitmore, a beautiful woman suffering from acute short-term memory loss. After a car accident several months before, she has been left with a rare brain condition that causes her memory to be totally erased every night when she goes to sleep. Adam Sandler plays Henry Roth, a vet who works at the aquarium in the Hawaiian resort where Lucy is living a quiet life with her over-protective father (Blake Clark) and goofy brother (Sean Astin). Henry usually spends his summers seducing a string of female tourists that he'll never see again - but when he meets Lucy he realises he's found something special, and resolves to give up his promiscuous, non-commital lifestyle. The only problem is, when he meets her again the next day, she hasn't got a clue who he is. Henry embarks on an elaborate quest to win her heart, with the help of his stoner best friend Ula (Rob Schneider). Dan Akroyd makes a cameo appearance as Lucy's doctor. In 'Groundhog Day' (1993) cynical TV weatherman Phil Connors (Bill Murray) has nothing but disdain for the population of Punxatawney, Pennsylvania, the nowhere town he has to visit every year in order to cover the traditional Groundhog Day festivities. Even the attractive company of new producer Rita (Andie MacDowell) doesn't cheer him up, and his mood doesn't improve when he is stranded overnight due to a blizzard. Imagine Phil's horror, therefore, when he wakes the following morning to discover that it is Groundhog Day. Again. For some reason, Phil has become trapped in a Punxatawney time loop, forced to live the same day over and over.... until he gets it right.

From Amazon.co.uk

50 First Dates is a sweet-natured vehicle for sweet-natured stars Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore, and their track record with The Wedding Singer no doubt factors in its lowbrow appeal. But while the well-matched lovebirds wrestle with a gimmicky plot (she has no short-term memory, so he has to treat every encounter as their first), director Peter Segal (who directed Sandler in Anger Management) ignores the intriguing potential of their predicament (think Memento meets Groundhog Day) and peppers the proceedings with the kind of juvenile humour that Sandler fans have come to expect. The movie sneaks in a few heartfelt moments amidst its inviting Hawaiian locations, and that trained walrus is charmingly impressive, but you can't quite shake the feeling that too many good opportunities were squandered in favour of easy laughs. Like Barrymore's character, you might find yourself forgetting this movie shortly after you've seen it. --Jeff Shannon --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The general plot of this film is someone trying to make someone else fall in love with him every day and I have to say that I do find something to love in this film every time I see it. Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore work well together in this and they are backed up by a great support cast. Henry first meets Lucy at a cafe and is surprised by how well they get on, considering that Henry is not after a relationship. But the next day, Lucy rebuffs him. It emerges that Lucy has severe short-term memory loss - she cannot remember anything that happened the day before, not helped by the fact that her protective father and brother have lived in a time warp by reliving the same day over and over again for Lucy's benefit. Henry sets about doing the seemingly-impossible - by trying to get involved in Lucy's life in the hope that she will eventually 'remember' him and have a relationship with Lucy. It is engaging, funny and tugs at a few heartstrings along the way. A great film to watch on a quiet night in.

From the golden days of both these actors, Adam Sandler plays the man who has to make a good first impression everyday on Drew Barrymore due to her short term memory loss. Both play the roles incredibly well, Barrymore the perfect girl next door foil for Sandler in his prime. The jokes are actually funny, the music well chosen (the soundtrack album is excellent too), the acting and story good.

And possibly the best dedication I have ever read during the end credits.

A very good Adam Sandler film. Some of the scenes in the restaurant are absolutely hilarious. Story doesn't make sense but who cares. It comes across as an enjoyable film that is very funny.
