Trailer For Blended Online
Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore reunited

Anyone who endured Grown Ups 2 this year may have cast their mind back to the happier Adam Sandler days of The Wedding Singer. So here's a further reminder of that relative classic - and of Sandler's other rom-com with Drew Barrymore, 50 First Dates. The pair have joined forces for a third time for Blended, the trailer for which has just arrived.

This is the film that Sandler jumped into when his comedy Western Ridiculous Six was back-burnered for more script tweaking. It went into production without a title, and for a while seemed to be called The Familymoon, until settling on its current moniker, which refers to "blended families" and not to any sort of unfortunate kitchen accident.

As you'll have gathered, this one's about a couple who endure a disastrous blind date, and then find, by the laws of sod and convolution, that they're booked on the same African safari holiday, and are going to have to share a suite - with their kids from previous marriages - for a week. There will be slapstick disasters, but somehow, we reckon it'll all work out just fine.

Kevin Nealon, Terry Crews and Bella Thorne co-star, Clare Sera (The Princess Diaries and its sequel) wrote the screenplay, and the director is Sandler regular Frank Coraci (The Wedding Singer, The Waterboy, Click). Blended travels to UK cinemas on May 23, 2014.
