50 First Dates

Time really flies so fast. The first month of 2010 has ended and it’s now February, love month. Love is in the air and so our theme for Tuesday Couch Potato is “Love Story Movies”. Of course the classics like “Ghost” and “Titanic” won’t be missed in the list but I also love “50 First Dates”. For those who want to watch a really feel-good film, this movie is highly recommended.

“50 First Dates” is a funny yet heartwarming movie. This is about Lucy (Drew Barrymore) who has a short-term memory loss so every night all memory of her day is erased that is why every date with Henry is a first date for her. Henry (Adam Sandler), a man who lives an enviable life in a Hawaiian paradise and afraid of commitment, met Lucy and fell in love with her. Henry finds imaginative ways of reminding Lucy over again everyday how much they love each other. A man in love will go to any lengths to win over the girl of his dreams. This once again proven that love conquers all.

Underneath the humor is where I believe this film’s true beauty lies. It shows love in a way that I have never seen in another film before. From the way that Lucy’s family understands and protects her to keep her happy, to Henry who, despite the fact that he could have just about any woman that he wanted, decides that he wants to be with Lucy his whole life regardless of the fact that he has to remind her everyday that he is her husband . Watching this movie at home on the sofa with my husband whom I love above anything and hopefully always will, almost brought me to tears.

  4. This was going to be my pick too. I was late posting so I changed my mind. I appreciated a lot that he tried and tried. Plus the one in the end, when he asked do you remember me? and she said no, yet told him that he was the man of her dreams. That part really rocked!
