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

“..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]

Z FOR ZACHARIAH :

“..the dramatic tension considerably less, in a movie that feels stranded somewhere between serious artistic ambition and the dystopian franchise-building of "The Hunger Games," "Divergent," et al..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]

WE ARE YOUR FRIENDS :

“..Joseph's debut proves to be a film with mood to spare but nothing much to say..”
by Nick Schager [The Playlist]

NO ESCAPE :

“..it's a disingenuous mess..”
by Nick Schager [The Playlist]

DIGGING FOR FIRE :

“..the movie steps lively with buoyant humor and palpable sexual tension, but keep an eye out for the dark places..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]

LEARNING TO DRIVE :

“..it has the intelligence to answer its own questions, about how a New Yorker could be so endlessly selfless. It just doesn't have the courage of its convictions, to delve a little deeper past the broad strokes of this frustratingly familiar.. story..”
by Tasha Robinson [A.V. Club]

QUEEN OF EARTH :

“..it's a cold picture and may be a little obscure for some audiences, but watching this thrilling new filmmaking step and an auteurial voice grow is exciting stuff to witness..”
by Rodrigo Perez [The Playlist]

THE CURSE OF DOWNERS GROVE :

“..a messy hash of teen soap opera, stalker thriller and whatnot whose titular, possibly supernatural aspect is basically irrelevant..”
by Dennis Harvey [Variety]

SEQUOIA :

“..sometimes feels like an unwanted distraction..”
by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter]

BANG BANG BABY :

“..Rich Pell and David Wall have written a couple of memorable tunes and frankly, it's too bad there weren't a few more..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

HOLDING THE MAN :

“..generally the pacing of the film is good, only lagging in moments, an impressive accomplishment in a story covering such a period of time..”
by Lauren Williams [Planet Arts Melbourne]
