Re-teaming Adam Sandler with Drew Barrymore, his co-star from The Wedding Singer, as well as Peter Segal, his director on Anger Management, Fifty First Dates finds the funnyman playing veterinarian Henry Roth. More than content with a life of one-night-stands, Henry decides to give up his noncommittal lifestyle when he meets and falls for Lucy (Barrymore). However, when he discovers that Lucy has no short term memory, Henry finds himself having to win her heart again with every new day. Sean Astin and Rob Schneider also star. ~ Matthew Tobey, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Quite what age group this soft-centered entertainment is aimed at is hard to divine."
‑ Wally Hammond, Time Out
"This movie paints itself into a corner from which it cannot emerge without becoming an utter disaster as far as I'm concerned."
‑ Richard Roeper, Ebert & Roeper
"...has an unexpected emotional undertow and enough hard-won laughs to make it succeed."
‑ Cole Smithey, ColeSmithey.com
"The moments that Sandler and Barrymore can steal together are golden."
‑ Rob Gonsalves, eFilmCritic.com
"I had hard time believing that someone as shallow as Henry would all of the sudden drop everything in his life for this girl, but the film is surprisingly winning."
‑ Bill Clark, FromTheBalcony
"Stupid, coarse and abysmally unfunny."
‑ Rex Reed, New York Observer
"Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore shine in this sweet, flirty comedy about a man who falls for a woman with short-term memory loss."
‑ Stephanie Zacharek, Salon.com
"A surprisingly good film with a sweet story, top-notch acting, and an ending that will really hit your heart strings."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Though the set-up in this light romantic comedy is a bit strained, once you get into the main interaction with the two stars you get both the laughs and the emotion that you hope for in a film like this."
‑ James Plath, Movie Metropolis
"This dopey film has virtually nothing going for it but its genial stars."
‑ Nick Schager, Lessons of Darkness
"Ends up making you pine for Lucy's gift of forgetting."
‑ Laura Sinagra, Village Voice
"A chick flick for guys, with a pH balance in perfect equilibrium between the crass and the sweet."
‑ Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post
"Within the witlessness and crudeness is a touching (or mawkish, depending on your perspective) romantic comedy trying to get out."
‑ Daniel Etherington, Film4
"Gossamer thin, but lots of fun nevertheless."
‑ Simon Braund, Empire Magazine
"Click to read review"
‑ Staci Layne Wilson, StaciWilson.com
