“..why Hollywood is still making the same boneheaded rom-coms year after year after year..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [NY Daily News]
1 of 4

“..the jokes in Adam Sandler movies are like buses. If you miss one, it's coming back in five minutes, And so it is with romantic comedy Blended..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]
2.5 of 4

“..the familiar Sandler-Barrymore chemistry lends a bit of sparkle to this otherwise predictable family rom-com..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]
“..shots don't match. Jokes misfire. Gags that are visible from a mile away fail to deliver..”
by A.O. Scott [NY Times]

“..nothing fresh or surprising will shake or stir audiences in Blended..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

“..like something coughed up by a baby, "Blended" is tasteless mush..”
by Joe Williams [St. Louis Post-Dispatch]
1.5 of 4

“..it's a crude, silly romantic comedy whose best idea is reuniting him with Drew Barrymore, his co-star in "The Wedding Singer" and "50 First Dates." This film is essentially a footnote to those originals. Miss it and you miss very little..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]
1 of 4

“..if "Funny People" is any indication, Sandler hates himself, and in "Blended" he invites us to join him..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]
“..a fun, often funny, largely enjoyable romp..”
by Gary Goldstein [LA Times]

THE INTRUDERS :

“..this is one of those movies that's not very good but not so offensively bad that I regret ever seeing it. No doubt, it's also something I probably won't remember in a week..”
by Brian Oliver [The Movieman]

FOCUS :

“..like a counterfeit handbag: It looks great but falls apart when you reach into it..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

A LA MALA :

“..thoroughly predictable, and despite an original setup, the movie never rouses the emotions..”
by Marjorie Baumgarten [Austin Chronicle]

THE HUNTING GROUND :

“..the stories are horrifying, but essential to hear..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

OUT OF THE DARK :

“..a horror movie with an anti-globalist bent that's more interesting than its halfhearted scares..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

THE SALVATION :

“..delivering a highly stylized widescreen revenge picture loaded with weapons and driven entirely by "superficial action"..”
by Peter Debruge [Variety]

EVERLY :

“..the film isn't particularly convincing either as a rousing anthology of bloodsport set pieces or a deeply felt portrait of revenge and reunion..”
by Vadim Rizov [A.V. Club]

'71 :

“..the hard-charging debut feature from TV director Yann Demange, makes us live every vivid, violent moment with him, the threat of death lurking at every turn..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]

BLUEBIRD :

“..undoubtedly a remarkable achievement, especially for a first-time filmmaker..”
by Jordan Hoffman [Film.com]

THE LAZARUS EFFECT :

“..still, "The Lazarus Effect," clocking in at a brief 86 minutes, doesn't go far enough, isn't scary enough and has mad scientists who just aren't mad enough..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]
