Consensus: Lurching between slapstick and schmaltz without showing much of a commitment to either, Blended commits the rare Sandler sin of provoking little more than boredom.

James Berardinelli

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).

Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore star in Blended, their third pairing, and, while the chemistry may be good, the movie isn't.

To summarise in as few words possible: it is a film, it has people in it, the lighting is adequate and there's a monkey band playing Careless Whisper. Can I go home now and stare into the dark abyss that is my life please?

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.

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.

Avoid "Blended" like it's your job - because it is. Your future happiness could depend on it.

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.

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.

A movie too afraid to use real emotion or accept its audience is smart enough to read between the lines.

Although it is far-fetched and awkward at times, "Blended" is funny and delightful in many parts. Barrymore and Sandler both perform better than… More

For a comedy it's severely light on gags, especially ones that land, and on the drama side it's hammy and confused. But it's far from the worst… More
