After a horrible blind date, Lauren (played by Drew Barrymore) and Jim (played by Adam Sandler) coincidentally bump into each other again on multiple occasions. The main occasion is when they each go on a trip to Africa they were given to by their friends with their families. Since the trip was originally their friend’s, they are forced to stay together and do different activities with each other. Later, they begin to get along since they are able to help each other out with their kids and they begin to develop feelings for each other. I think this movie is a good movie to watch with family since it is filled with joy and laughter, and it is one of my favourite movies with Adam Sandler. I would give this movie a 4/5 rating.

Blended is an Adam Sandler focusing after two single parents have a disastrous first date. The two despite all odds both get their friends tickets to take their families on a family strengthening trip to Africa. When they get their they realize they both got tickets and are now forced to stay together in a room and share the experiences. Along the way they end up forming a strong bond, throughout the hectic trip. I would recommend this movie because is it extremely heartwarming and funny.

After watching the movie Blended I was filled with joy! Blended was a total feel-good movie. This movie was great for all ages and it is a very great option for families, because it is based on family! Blended was a movie about children and adults coming together to form a new life together. This movie was very funny as well as interesting to watch. The problems and antics filled in the movie Blended were not only able to keep you on your toes, but laughter filled, as well. My favourite actor in this movie was Bella Thorne. The reason I think that is because she's a great actress in this movie and was a very believable nerdy and shy girl. Basically, everyone made fun of her because her character looks like a boy when really she was a teenage girl looking for a good time. I would definitely recommend this movie because I loved it! I would say to watch it with the entire family so everyone can experience Blended together. I would rate the movie a 3.5/5.
