“Adam Sandler” - two words that strike fear into this movie critic. Fortunately, here he’s Blended with Drew Barrymore who, having co-starred in The Wedding Singer and 50 First Dates, is back for more - of the same. Adam and Drew play a couple of single parents who, following a disastrous blind date, meet again whilst on a South African holiday with their respective kids in tow. Cue mismatched romantic shenanigans.

Suffers from a fundamental lack of trust in its audience, following every unexpectedly smart exchange with a numbskull pratfall or one-liner...

The worst moment? When Drew makeovers Adam’s “fugly” daughter (Bella Thorne) into perv-pleasing jailbait.

Has the look and pacing of a three-camera sitcom filmed by a bunch of eighth graders and conceived by their less bright classmates.

A vomit-inducing blend of mawkish sentimentality and dead-on-arrival humour, all bundled up in a putrid package of festering family-friendly fun.

Far more palatable and bearable than it has any right to be.

Feels like a tentative next step in Sandler’s evolving screen persona, one that has gone from good-hearted dolt to bumbling man-child to middle-aged father.

No surprises here, nor many laughs, though the romance has a simple, sentimental appeal.
