Time: 1hr 57min
So I went to see this movie with a guy and I wasn't too hopeful since Adam Sandler is in the movie but I ended up loving it. And to top off my wonderful evening I was thrilled that my first date ever went so well. Who would've thought?
Jim (Adam Sandler) and Lauren (Drew Barrymore) go on their first date, to Hooters of all places! Needless to say, it goes horribly wrong and they end up fleeing from each other. Lauren organizes closets with her best friend Jen (Wendi Mclendon-Covey) and has two boys that she raises alone since her ex (Joel McHale) is never around. Jim works at Dick's Sporting Good and has three daughters that he is raising alone since his wife died of cancer.
A chance meeting leads them to have the same idea. They both plan a trip to Africa, not realizing that they are both going to be going there. They run into each other and immediately start fighting. Jim takes the boys; Brendan (Braxton Beckham) and Tyler (Kyle Red Silverstine), under his wing while Lauren does the same for the girls; Hilary(Bella Thorne), Espen (Emma Fuhrmann), Lou (Alyvia Alyn Lind). Together they have a wonderful vacation. Jim and Lauren even start to fall for one another but before things can go too far Jim pulls away and the vacation ends.
Jim tries to reconcile with her and try again but he runs into Mark (her ex) who tells him that Lauren and he are trying to make it work. As if! So he leaves and Lauren doesn't know why. Thankfully he shows up for Tyler's baseball game and they kiss. About time right!?
Well this is a definitely must see movie! I hope you take my advice and go see it with you boyfriend/girlfriend, wife/husband, or a friend. It is a perfect couple's movie!
