No one brings out inspired writing from movie reviewers quite like Adam Sandler. Here’s A.O. Scott: “Blended has the look and pacing of a three-camera sitcom filmed by a bunch of eighth graders and conceived by their less bright classmates. Shots don’t match. Jokes misfire. Gags that are visible from a mile away fail to deliver.” And here’s Richard Brody in his review, Blended is a Failure for the Ages: “The romance is sweet and even effervescent, the comedy is homespun and sentimental, but it’s packaged with such a repellent batch of stereotypes and prejudices that it’s unpalatable even to contemplate.”
