Consider the dilemma of Henry Roth (Adam Sandler). He’s just met and fallen for Lucy (Drew Barrymore), a beautiful woman who suffers from severe short term memory loss. When she wakes up every morning, she can’t remember a single thing from the day before, which means that every time she meets Henry, it’s as if it’s for the first time because she can’t remember any of the other times Henry has courted her. Critics all over the country praised Adam Sandler for this change of pace character and the innate sweetness of the film. In short, this is one of the best “Date Night” movies of recent years. It’s also one of the most commercially successful movies produced by Drew Barrymore’s production company, Flower Films.
Drew Barrymore has been making movies since she was 5 years old. Part of the legendary Barrymore family of actors (great uncle Lionel Barrymore was the nasty banker in the holiday classic IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE), she is one of only a handful of child actors who have not only successfully made the transition to adulthood in front of the camera, like fellow former child star Jodie Foster, she’s even bigger now than she was as a kid. She and producing partner Nancy Juvonen formed Flower Films which, in addition to 50 FIRST DATES, has produced a number of highly successful films, including the CHARLIE’S ANGELS films, the cult classic DONNIE DARKO and last summer’s FEVER PITCH.
