Drew Barrymore Cries Over “Blended’s” Emotional Moments

Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler have undeniable chemistry, as proven with their previous hits “The Wedding Singer” and 50 First Dates.” Their third pairing, Blended, opens nationwide May 23.


“Aside from what we do together, I’m so in love with what he did, from Saturday Night Live and Happy Gilmore and Billy Madison,” said Barrymore when asked about what makes her collaboration with Sandler tick. “I love this person so much. He’s so amazing and I appreciated him. But when it comes down to that one on one, when it’s just us two alone on a playing field, it’s just total respect. It’s like giddy. Giddy respect.”

In Blended, they play single parents who decide never to see each other again after a disastrous blind date. Through circumstance, their families are stuck together at an African safari resort for a week, leading to disastrous (and one would assume, eventually harmonious and loving) results. Although the flick has its share of laughs, Blended also possesses an emotional core which resonated with Barrymore.
