Our Score
Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore have chemistry and history. In fact, they've done some of their best work together. Sadly, this bloated romantic comedy isn't in the same class as The Wedding Singer or 50 First Dates. Here the stars play single parents who, after a disastrous blind date, unexpectedly find themselves and their five kids all on holiday at the same African safari resort. That contrived but killer combination of kids and critters ensures much lowbrow slapstick, as well as the occasional - and much more welcome - subtler moment. But, ultimately, this comedy is long and laboured, and at its best on the odd occasions when not trying too hard to be funny.


Two single parents go on a disastrous blind date, which leaves them both convinced they never want to see each other again. They unwittingly both take their children on holiday to an African resort, where a mix-up results in both families sharing the same room. Romantic comedy, starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore.
