50 First Dates ★★½ 2004 (PG-13)

Barrymore is the sweet girl with no shortterm memory and Sandler is the lovestruck island veterinarian who tries to woo her…over and over again. Sweetly charming at times, as Sandler tones down his more outrageous behavior for a decent romantic comedy. Clark does a fine job as Barrymore's slightly overprotective but loving father. Astin goes 180 degrees from anything resembling a hobbit as the pumpedup brother. 96m/C DVD, Bluray Disc, UMD .
