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.

Here are my top 9 worst TV shows I have ever watched. 1. Breadwinners and Sanjay and Craig (tie) 2. Marvin Marvin 3.  Pickle and Peanut 4 Fred Figglehorn  5. Annoying Orange 6. Austin and Ally 7. Dog on a Blog 8. The Day My Butt Went Psycho (I'm not Canadian but it doesn't look like a good show) 9. Lab Rats  Basically every show that has a laugh track.  If you are looking for a good show, watch Doctor Who. No laugh tracks, humor is used properly, good storyline, DOESN'T take place in a school ALL OF THE TIME (well, it does in some episodes such as school reunion) The cast isn't full of teenagers and parents won't get so annoyed of the show. It's about a 900 year old time lord (who looks like a human) that travels in a TARDIS. He has 13 regenerations and almost always has a female companion with him. He is the last of his species so he's always lonely on Earth.

Plus he said MOST on cartoon Network. Not every show. I have to agree. There is better TV out there... Such as.... *takes deep breath* Doctor Who (Better than ALL of the trash they show on Disney Channel, Nickelodeon, and most cartoon network shows combined) Old spongebob (not the new spongebob episodes) Sherlock (hmmm I have never watched the show but i have heard it's awesome) I worship the BBC for making good things happen to the world.
