We gave it a D+

In their third film together, Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler play single parents who go on a disastrous first date, then wind up on the same safari vacation with their respective children. But, as in any good romantic comedy, the seemingly mismatched pair find themselves falling for each other. “It’s just so easy to pretend to be in love with him,” says Barrymore of working with her 50 First Dates and Wedding Singer costar again. The cast shot for two months on location in South Africa, which was a little overwhelming for Barrymore because she took along her then-6-month-old daughter, Olive. “That was crazy,” she admits. “I tried to show her animals. It ended up being the coolest experience.”
