Drew Barrymore and Adam Sandler, who worked together in the "Wedding Singer," reunite as love interests in Columbia TriStar's "50 First Dates," which comes to DVD this week for $28.95.
The DVD's special features include a gag reel, deleted scenes, the director's commentary, Comedy Central's "First Look" special and three music videos, including "Love Song" by 311.
In the film, Barrymore plays Lucy, a twentysomething single who lives at home with her father and brother, whose lives revolve around trying to protect her from a painful truth: She has a rare form of amnesia that causes her memory to be wiped clean every day.
When Lucy meets Henry (Sandler), a playboy who loves the chase but never commits, it's love at first sight for him. However, he is confused the next day when she does not remember him.
So, he decides it's best to tell her the truth -- every day.
Each morning, Henry must find a way to make Lucy fall in love with him again.
Post movie critic Michael O'Sullivan described the movie as "a sneakily charming romantic comedy" and as "a chick flick for guys, with a pH balance in perfect equilibrium between the crass and the sweet."
Rob Schneider ("The Animal") co-stars in the PG-13 film.
