Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"What's missing from Blended? Two key ingredients: it doesn't touch the heart and it doesn't tickle the funny bone (at least not often enough)."
‑ James Berardinelli, ReelViews
"Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore star in Blended, their third pairing, and, while the chemistry may be good, the movie isn't."
‑ Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
"It seems that miracles do happen in modern cinema. It's warm, funny, tender, serious and ( ... ) decidedly old fashioned. There's no swearing, no pandering to repeated toilet gags and the 'gross-out' market is all but ignored."
‑ Graham Young, Birmingham Mail
"Adam Sandler fans who are members of blended families may love it the most. All others will wish Blended had the courage to include more identifiable human moments and fewer screwing rhinos."
‑ Mike McGranaghan, Aisle Seat
"The uninspired screenplay is content to recycle the same jokes over and over, with gradually diminished returns."
‑ Todd Jorgenson, Cinemalogue.com
"The romance is sweet and even effervescent, the comedy is homespun and sentimental, but it's packaged with such a repellent batch of stereotypes and prejudices that it's unpalatable even to contemplate."
‑ Richard Brody, New Yorker
"Comedians often draw on childhood influences, and Adam Sandler and his team do it in the worst possible way in Blended.. [which] is like a Bizarro version of The Brady Bunch."
‑ Michael Sragow, Orange County Register
"Hasn't Africa suffered enough?"
‑ John Beifuss, Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
"Blessedly written by someone who's not Sandler--and it's almost passable, even palatable ... until the movie throws in vagina-size jokes. And passes off tomboys as weird non-men. And goes to "Africa.""
‑ Brian Gibson, Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)
"Blended is awful. It's the kind of awful film where it's hard to resist the temptation to just list all the awful things that happen in it and pass that off as a review."
‑ Anthony Morris, The Vine
"In the world of this sitcom love story, men are from Mars and women should be from a defiled menstrual tent far enough away that Adam Sandler won't have to hear them talk about tampons."
‑ Amy Nicholson, L.A. Weekly
"Sandler would piss out of the screen if he thought he could get a laugh. This is not his worst film, but it's his most offensive."
‑ David Edelstein, New York Magazine/Vulture
"I wish "Blended" were more a family ensemble dramedy and not a Barrymore and Sandler vehicle that rips off of "Yours, Mine and Ours.""
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Typical Sandler contrived comedy, with more heart and the likeable Drew Barrymore to help keep the African safari-themed absurdity and crudity to tolerant levels."
‑ Bruce Bennett, Spectrum (St. George, Utah)
"DREW Barrymore tends to bring out the best in Adam Sandler - so much so that their re-teaming almost saves Blended."
‑ Matt Neal, The Standard
