50 First Dates

50 First Dates features Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore, trying to recapture the romantic cuteness of The Wedding Singer. This time out Sandler plays a marine veterinarian in Hawaii who specializes in one night stands with tourists, and Barrymore plays a woman with short-term memory loss, like the guy in Memento. Every day she wakes up thinking it's the day of the car crash which caused her brain damage. This condition makes a continuing relationship with Sandler difficult but he keeps trying, because he was cured of the one-night-stand thing as soon as he saw her. 50 First Dates is very sweet at times and often funny as well, but it suffers from frequent outbursts of incongruous gross-out humor and dirty jokes. I gave it six out of ten.
