Blended marks the third comedy collaboration between stars Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore, following their successful onscreen pairings in the hit romantic comedies 50 First Dates and The Wedding Singer. It also reunites them with their Wedding Singer director, Frank Coraci.
After a disastrous blind date, single parents Lauren (Barrymore) and Jim (Sandler) agree on only one thing: they never want to see each other again. But when they each sign up separately for a fabulous family vacation with their kids, they’re all stuck sharing a suite at a luxurious African safari resort for a week.
Blended also stars Joel McHale (NBC’s Community) as Lauren’s ex-husband, Mark, and Wendi McLendon-Covey (Bridesmaids) as her best friend, Jen; Kevin Nealon (Weeds) and Jessica Lowe (funnyordie’s RobotDown) as an overly romantic couple also vacationing at the resort; Terry Crews (The Expendables 2) as the resort’s singing host; and Dan Patrick (ESPN SportsCenter) as Dick.
