“..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]

LATEST REVIEWS

GABBAR IS BACK :

“..dumbed down to a ridiculous degree, the film - directed by hotshot Telugu director Krish - tries to be a less-pathetic version of Salman Khan's Jai Ho and might have succeeded on that count were it not for an absolutely daft script..”
by Raja Sen [Rediff]

RIDE :

“..Hunt, who also wrote and directed, didn't take her own advice. There's not a surprise in this entire movie..”
by Katharine Pushkar [NY Daily News]

CAS & DYLAN :

“..Priestley shows a steady eye for detail in his first time as director, although he lets the film stray too much into TV territory..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

ANY DAY :

“..built on a number of ludicrous contrivances, Any Day eventually pushes its disparate pieces together into a misguided and oddly unsettling storyline..”
by Kate Erbland [The Dissolve]

HYENA :

“..there's something interesting in the way he [Gerard Johnson] deliberately denies his characters and the viewers any reprieve..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]

WELCOME TO ME :

“..a dark comedy that succeeds on its own itchy terms..”
by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter]

FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD :

“..works on all levels. Foremost, it is brilliantly directed by Thomas Vinterberg..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

CLEVELAND ABDUCTION :

“..involving violence, sexual assault, torture, and, above all, captivity, abduction stories are a catch-all for the women-in-peril narrative that is the core theme of so many Lifetime movies..”
by Molly Eichel [A.V. Club]

THE WATER DIVINER :

“..the overstuffed story feels bombastic and contrived..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

LITTLE BOY :

“..though occasionally sticky sweet and not always subtle, it's also a smart and very moving story..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]
