This is a day I never thought would come and it makes me sad. But I think I’ve outgrown Adam Sandler. Yes, I know, there is probably some rule that says I “have to” hate Adam Sandler movies as a movie critic. But I’ve always liked his movies. At least I used to.
Does this mean I’ve grown up. Or does this mean Sandler just hasn’t. Yeah, he usually plays some sort of “family man” in his movies now, but it just seems like he’s clinging unnecessarily to his immaturity. My main problem with “Blended” is that it just seems like he took a highlight reel of jokes from better movies and wrote them into this script.
