Marine biologist Henry Roth finds the perfect woman, Lucy Whitmore and falls head over heels for her. But when he sees her the following day, she hasn't a clue as to who he is. Lucy suffers from a rare brain disorder that wipes her memory clean every night. Now, with the help of his friend Ula, he has to concoct new and increasingly clever ways to meet her and get her to fall for him every friggin' day.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy Romantic - It's your typical Adam Sandler movie. It contains the normal raunchy and often very silly humor, but it also has a touching love story that should broaden its appeal to a wider audience.

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good "50 First Dates" offers viewers a kinder, gentler Adam Sandler. Gone (at least for one movie) is the narcissistic adolescent caught in a perpetual state of arrested development. In his place is a likeable goofball whose rough edges are worn off by a force more effective than sandpaper: falling in love. Although there are moments that will tickle the bellies of longtime Sandler fans, "50 First Dates" is sweet enough to capture the attention, and perhaps affection, of those who would not ordinarily see a movie headlined by this particular star.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good The movie doesn't have the complexity and depth of "Groundhog Day" (which I recently saw described as "the most spiritual film of our time"), but as entertainment it's ingratiating and lovable. And it suggests that Sandler, whose movies are so often based on hostility, has another speed, another tone, that plays very nicely.

USA Today Full Review
Average "50 First Dates" is working awfully hard to be romantic and not hard enough to be a comedy. ...the bigger problem with this movie is the dichotomy created by interspersing gross-out gags with cloying sweetness. The premise has hints of "Groundhog Day," with none of its charm. Sandler's casual, almost lackadaisical movie approach contrasts with his determined character. If only he worked as diligently to win the audience over as he does to lure Lucy.

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

We collected 270 moviegoer opinions. For the target audience of twentysomething and younger moviegoers, mostloved "50 First Dates," giving it a high percentage of "Excellent" and "Fantastic" opinions.

For an Adam Sandler movie these are some great opinions from older moviegoers, who usually aren't as receptive to his crude style of humor. As you can see, only a few adults rated it low with most rating it quite high.

If you enjoy Adam Sandler's crude style of humor, GO SEE "50 FIRST DATES." If you can only take a little of this crude style of humor, you can still GO SEE "50 FIRST DATES," because there's only a little of this style of humor, but there's a wonderful story that will appeal to a wide audience.
