Blended Blu-ray Review

Blended Blu-ray Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Aug 26, 2014
( Rating: 3 Star Rating)

Two families will have to survive their vacation when now that “Blended” has arrived onto Blu-ray + DVD! Read Kidzworld's review of the Blu-ray Combo Pack!

After a disastrous blind date, single parents Lauren (Drew Barrymore) and Jim (Adam 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.

The Bottom Line

If you're dying to watch a family-friendly romantic comedy, then this movie might hit all the right buttons for you. Adam Sandler comedies haven't been getting the greatest reviews in the last few years (and it's hard to live up to some of his earlier comedies) but Blended has some fun moments and gags in it all the same. Adam Sandler  and Drew Barrymore have reliably enjoyable chemistry when it comes to rom-coms, so if you're a die-hard fan of these two, you'll enjoy this one.

Although it's far-fetched these two families would coincidentally end up vacationing in the same place in Africa after the single parents suffer through a horrible first date with each other, some of the best parts of the movie have to do with the setting. The blu-ray extras wisely played up this aspect, and highlights in the extras include "Animals," "Ostriches" and "Safari." If you happen to be a Bella Thorne fan (from Shake it Up!) you'll want to check out "Bella Thorne's Makeover."

Blended isn't exactly an instant classic, but it's a blu-ray that will have a little something for everyone.

Which channel do you think as of today is the best channel for kids today on cable. I would probably go with Disney XD. It's just as good as it was back in 2009 in my opinion and it has a great selection of shows. What do you think is the definitive channel for kids in 2016?
