Blended – Review

BLENDED

Welcome to Blended, brought to you by the South African tourist board. On your left is a lumbering performance from Drew Barrymore, and on your right is a clunky and drawn-out plot. At least South Africa looks pretty.

Terry Crews has the time of his life as the explosively charismatic singer Nickens, popping up unexpectedly with his backing singers like day-glo Oompa-Loompas. Unfortunately, beyond this the jokes are mundane and inconsistent. The family drama is stronger in comparison, with the child actors all giving good performances, but despite a few touching moments it sinks into an embarrassingly clichéd procession of rom-com tropes.

Not as bad as Grown-Ups 2; not as good as The Wedding Singer.

RATING: 2/5
