Short-term Memory Loss
Just saw Fifty First Dates. Gosh, it really got me both laughing out loud and crying tears of mush. I have to admit that normally I loathe watching Adam Sandler movies simply because I find his approach to humor at times a tad too... typical. For example, I loved Punch-Drunk Love, Anger Management and The Wedding Singer. I really HATED Bulletproof, Big Daddy and (I know, you'll hate me for saying this) Billy Madison and Happy Gilmore. So so far, there are more misses than hits for me.

But damn, Fifty First Dates hit me in levels I really did not expect. Damn, its so hard to remain focused and realistic in my idealistic views of love with movies like this.

Of course the riot scenes with Sean Astin ("wet dreams") and Drew Barrymore ("Nothing beats a first kiss") were just icing on the cake.
