Movie Review by Zara
March 14th, 2007

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this movie

There is a magic chemistry between Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler that always seems fun and never comes off as forced. There's also something really sweet about their interaction. Watching them fall in love without needing to worry if you're going to need to herd your kids out of the room is a good thing also.

I love the story of a woman with a short term memory and a man who falls in love with her and wants to spend as many of his days possible trying to get her to remember him more. I also love the interaction between Sandler and her father and brother, two protective men who were willing to do what it took to keep her from going insane about her condition.

Again, Sean Astin steals the show. The other side characters in the smaller roles are great as well. Perfect seasoning for a movie that looks gorgeous (helps to film in Hawaii) and has a gentle soundtrack that will keep you humming.

This is the kind of movie that I can get behind and that I love to show to my daughter. OK, so maybe it's a LITTLE unrealistic in its approach to love, but I'd rather have her watch this and catch its positive vibes than watch some dinky cartoon on daytime television.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE how no matter how hard a person can try, you just can't develop taste. Know your role.
