Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore are going to team back up for another comedy! I have been a fan of Sandler and Barrymore’s on-screen relationship since “The Wedding Singer,” so I’m intrigued to see the two back together. The two will be starring in “Blended,” a comedy that pits two single parents and their children together for a raucous weekend in African vacation. Here’s more about “Blended”:

“’Blended’ marks the third comedy collaboration between stars Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore, following their successful onscreen pairings in the hit romantic comedies ’50 First Dates’ and ‘The Wedding Singer.’
After a disastrous blind date, single parents Lauren (Barrymore) and Jim (Sandler) agree on only one thing: they never want to see each other again. But when they each sign up separately for a fabulous family vacation with their kids, they are all stuck sharing a suite at a luxurious African safari resort for a week.

‘Blended’ also stars Joel McHale (NBC’s ‘Community’) as Lauren’s ex-husband, Mark, and Wendi McLendon-Covey (‘Bridesmaids’) as her best friend, Jen; Kevin Nealon (“Weeds”) and Jessica Lowe (funnyordie’s ‘RobotDown’) as an overly romantic couple also vacationing at the resort; Terry Crews (“The Expendables 2”) as the resort’s singing host; and Dan Patrick (ESPN SportsCenter) as Dick.

Playing the kids are: Bella Thorne of Disney Channel’s ‘Shake it Up,’ Emma Fuhrmann and Alyvia Alyn Lynd as Jim’s daughters; and Kyle Red Silverstein and Braxton Beckham as Lauren’s sons.”

“Blended” is directed by Frank Coraci, who also worked with Sandler and Barrymore on “The Wedding Singer.” He also worked with Sandler on “The Waterboy” and “Click.” The script is by Clare Sera and Ivan Menchell. “Blended” was filmed predominately on location in South Africa. Look for “Blended” Memorial Day weekend, May 23, 2014, to be exact. Learn more about “Blended” at its official site.
