    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    It's a kick to see the adorably sexy Barrymore back in relaxed form again after the "Duplex" debacle and that calamitous "Charlie's Angels" sequel. Right now, she's the closest thing to sunshine you'll find at the movies. show more

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    A mildly pleasing romantic comedy, a trifle held together by Drew Barrymore's charm and a decent high-concept gimmick. show more

    Claudia Puig USA Today

    50 First Dates is working awfully hard to be romantic and not hard enough to be a comedy. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    Adam Sandler's 50 First Dates isn't just slovenly and smarmy but creepy. show more

    Carrie Rickey Philadelphia Inquirer

    I don't think 50 First Dates is a great movie, or a particularly funny one, but I admired its romanticism and its gentle plea for the acceptance of difference. Of how many romantic comedies can you say they are sweet and disturbing? show more

    A terrible movie by all reasonable standards -- yet it leaves a sweet taste. show more

    Although its goofy high-concept premise won't bear much scrutiny, it offers a less predictable ride than their first pairing, and lush Hawaiian locations to boot. show more

    The film feels like a natural successor to "The Wedding Singer's" strange blend of humor and humanity, a gently silly comedy that's actually romantic without making anyone sick in the process. And that just might be a first. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    The movie doesn't have the complexity and depth of "Groundhog Day" (which I recently saw described as "the most spiritual film of our time"), but as entertainment it's ingratiating and lovable. show more

    James Berardinelli ReelViews

    Perhaps the biggest surprise of all is that the film doesn't resort to an easy cheat at the end. It plays things straight, and still manages to satisfy, making this one of Sandler's most appealing outings to date. show more
