Consensus: Gross-out humor overwhelms the easy chemistry between Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore, who bring some energy and yucks to this tale of a girl with short-term memory loss and the guy who tries to get her to love him.

Quite what age group this soft-centered entertainment is aimed at is hard to divine.

Fun movie but riddled with cheese, it's not great but it isn't as unbearable as some of Sandler's 21st century comedies.

For a romantic comedy, it certainly does its job and is not as bad as some of Sandler's other films.
