50 first dates

My movie review for 50 First Dates

Movie Genre: Romantic Comedy

Grade: B+/A-, Matthew Felsted

Adam Sandler plays the role of dishonest Casanova charming and seducing women that travel to the tropical paradise he lives and works in. He moves from woman to woman until he meets someone truly unique. His latest crush - a woman with a traumatic brain injury that causes her memory to reset every morning of every day of her life without exception. Every day she wakes up thinking it's the same day and her relatives are stuck pretending and conspiring to maintain her involuntary fantasy delusion.

So how does a man make such a woman fall in love with him? The answer is through her family. He wins her over slowly after many failures. Her family gradually comes to respect him and he eventually creates a tape to  explain everything to her every single morning.
