Reviews: Blended (2014)

blendedReviews for this film from our members:

  • Kevin Carr @ 7M Pictures
    • Excerpt: It’s not flawless, mind you. However, compared to movies like “Jack and Jill,” “Grown Ups 2” and “That’s My Boy,” “Blended” is like “Citizen Kane.”
  • Bill Clark @ From The Balcony
  • Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: while television Writers Ivan Menchell and Clare Sera have come up with a concept that shifts this one away from Sandler’s other vacation movie (“Just Go With It”), their set up, which takes a considerable amount of screen time, is horrible and their ‘jokes’ puerile.
  • Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
    • Excerpt: None of this makes a lick of sense in the context of the central question … and very little of it funny to one degree or another.
  • Susan Granger @
    • Excerpt: Formulaic, forgettable family farce…
  • Vadym Grygoriev @ [Ukrainian]
  • MaryAnn Johanson @
    • Excerpt: Adam Sandler goes to Africa, via the tampon aisle, and assumes you’ll agree with him that racism and sexism are family values worth celebrating.
  • Daniel Kelly @ Danland
    • Excerpt: If the upside of “Blended” is that we get a little more Drew in the years to come, then it’s hard to vehemently rage against the film. Doesn’t mean you have to watch it though.
  • Ben Kendrick @ Screen Rant
    • Excerpt: A surprisingly heartfelt story – held back by typical low brow Sandler gags.
  • Jeremy Kibler @ The Artful Critic
    • Excerpt: With “Blended” following the law of diminishing returns, its two stars at least make it more palatable than it should be. It’s not brain surgery, but it didn’t have to feel so lobotomized, either.
  • Kristin Dreyer Kramer @
  • Frank Ochieng @ focus Magazine of Virginia
    • Excerpt: Giving Sandler continued access to making one-note witless comedies year after year is the equivalent to applying a homemade stink bomb to a country road skunk’s carcass…it is a waste of time and it does not make much sense at all.
  • João Pinto @ Portal Cinema [Portuguese]
  • Frank Swietek @ One Guys Opinion
    • Excerpt: The mixture of romantic comedy, frantic farce, family sitcom, sentimentality and coarseness doesn’t really blend that well. But compared to his last few films, ‘Blended’ is a relief–a new Sandler vehicle that at least doesn’t make you want to retch.
